I love every one of these ideas for organizing craft supplies! Total #CraftRoomGoals. If you need a one stop shop for craft storage inspiration this is it! Everything is organized by category: Scrapbook Paper Organization, Sticker Organization, Stamp Organization, Washi Tape Organization, Ribbon Organization, Knitting Organization, Sewing Organization, and even craft organization tips for all the odds and ends in your craft room!

When we were packing up our belongings to make the long-distance move to the Sunshine state, one of my New York friends glanced at the towering boxes in the corner of my craft area and confronted me with the cold hard truth: I was a craft supply hoarder.

What can I say? I like options when the crafty bug bites!

But this has led to a closet overflowing with a ridiculous amount of supplies. And when I say craft closet, I mean CRAFT closet. When I open the doors, it’s like Hobby Lobby on a slightly smaller scale.

Here a sample of what’s inside:

  • All my scrapbooking supplies from years past {even though I no longer scrapbook}
  • Stamps and card making supplies
  • Knitting supplies
  • Cross stitch supplies
  • Sewing supplies
  • Lettering and drawing books
  • Washi tape
  • Thousands of printed photos
  • My Silhouette and all it’s corresponding supplies
  • Gift wrapping supplies {These are somewhat organized, thankfully!}

But as I embrace more simplicity and minimalism in my life, I find myself ready to let go of the clutter.

I don’t want all that stuff.

I want only to keep the few things that are most important to me and that I can see myself actually using when I feel the urge to create.

And so without further ado, my BIG home project for 2018 is decluttering and organizing my entire craft closet.

The First Step

I’m currently in the decluttering phase, weeding through items I don’t use anymore to donate or trash, but I’ve also been the on the hunt for inspiration so I know exactly how I want to organize what I have left.

And WOW, I found total craft organization goals!

It seemed selfish to keep all these awesome ideas to myself, so if you’re ready for a craft supply refresh of your own, browse my selections here to get inspired, too.

Scrapbook Paper:



Washi Tape:

  • If you want to display your washi tape on the wall, grab some command hooks, dowel rods, and a frame to put together this DIY storage solution (1).
  • Upcycle an empty wax paper box into a washi tape box (2)! The sharp edge doubles as a DIY tape dispenser.
  • This spice rack turned washi organizer (3) is another great way to riff off a product designed for a a different purpose.
  • To store washi tape in a drawer, simple baskets (4) from Michaels or the dollar store do the trick.


Knitting and Crocheting:


Odds and Ends:

All these swoon-worthy systems make my heart go pitter-patter! I can’t wait until I move onto the organization phase of my goal and can implement some of these ideas. Keep an eye out for what I end up using in a future blog post!

Now it’s time for me to get to work. 🙂
