MFT Organization Event Day 2 - Stencils

Welcome to day 2 of a week filled with ideas and tips to get your crafty area organized! Today's focus is stencils, and I'm going to show you how I currently organize my stencil collection. Always keep in mind that you have to find what works for YOU, not because someone else is doing it this way or that.

Not only are you going to find a ton of ideas linked from the MFT Blog, you're going to be eligible to win a prize package on each of the 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash event.

 As you saw yesterday with my stamp storage, my stencil storage starts out on the same page in these 12x12 bins housed in rolling cart.

A simple strip of washi tape and black Sharpie keep bin labeling a cinch. This method also allows me to make changes as needed in minimal do-over time.

These carts allow me much flexibility to pull out an entire drawer and carry it here or there while keeping everything in one place which is vital when the crafty space blows up, know what I mean?!

You can see a few of my stencil-techniques supplies also call this bin home which is entirely possible because stencils don't take up much room at all! There are 40+ stencils in that little pile.

 Once I'm ready to work with my stencils, I simply grab and move that bin from the cart to my work table and away I go, everything in one spot.

Full disclosure: I don't label my stencils! But, for me, it's easy to look it up on the MFT Store site and gives me an excuse to do a little shopping while I'm there.

Thanks for taking a tour with me today, I hope you enjoyed your stay and will come back tomorrow for more ideas for getting your crafty space in order. Now, head on over to the MFT Blog to see what's in today's prize package. Good luck!

Well this is an area that I haven't tackled before, I do have a lot of these drawers not spoken for so that maybe a good solution. However I have way to much paste and in different colors and textures, now what to do with all that.

I like this drawer system you used. I don't have these drawers but have some containers that are similar. I think I might buy another one to store my stencils. Thank you for the idea!!

You're much more organized than me. My things are in drawers but not labeled and definitely not that neatly. LOL

I like the idea of a craft center on wheels. Thanks for the idea.

I do like it Amy! I like having everything in one place and having it portable like this to carry to different parts of the house!
