Stampin' Up! Embellishment Storage

Stampin' Up! has a really great tabletop embellishment storage system, but what do you do if you're out of desk space?  I found myself in this very predicament on Saturday.  I've been doing some organizing and the state of my embellishments was appalling.  I got out this magnetic board that has been collecting dust for quite some time beside my desk (originally from Ikea) and decided to come up with a solution.  
Stampin' Up! embellishments already come in these fantastic storage containers, so it was a no brainer to just add some magnetic sheet to the tops of the lids and voila!  SUPER easy!  Use the Circles #2 die for cutting the magnet sheet, the largest circle fits perfectly! 
I LOVE that I can see through the containers.  Now when I'm doing my ordering I can see at a glance what I'm getting low on.  Big time saver!

Supplies: Magnet Board (Ikea), Big Shot, Circles #2 Die, Magnet Sheets
Have a great Sunday!  Wish me luck with my mission to create some sort of ribbon storage solution.  It's currently a pretty sad state of affairs!

Happy Stampin'

  1. Hi Allison! It's so funny that you showed this on your blog. I just did the same thing with my metal board from Ikea. I didn't reuse my SU! containers, but I bought stainless steel spice containers with a window from Canadian Tire. They even have two sizes. Great idea!
