My Storage Solution: Storage of Craft Foam Scraps
I save the scraps from craft foam and scrapbook paper & cardstock projects to punch holes and shapes from or to use when I need to try out an idea or otherwise need a small piece of craft foam.
I have kept them in a zip-lock bag for years and HAVE NOT been happy with that storage method but have never done anything about it. Until last night!
I started making foam sugar cookie & gingerbread ornaments for my “Cookie Christmas Tree” before Christmas and recently started doing photo tutorials for my “cookie cutter” posts. So I have daily, no – many, many times a day – pulled that bag out to get a small piece of craft foam for one use or another! And how many times did I put it back in the basket of craft foam? How much time have I wasted looking for it? Well, I’m not answering those questions!!! But let’s just say I’ve spent more time than I needed too looking for a small piece of foam!
So, I really, really needed a better storage solution! And last night it occurred to me – – – put the scraps in that empty 1 gallon jar you have just sitting around empty!
Now I need a jar for my scrapbook paper & cardstock scraps!
How about using that tea jug that is leaking around the spigot? One more thing given a new life and kept out of the landfill!
