    Everything in this slideshow

    • Craft Cupboard

      A shallow hanging cupboard provides plenty of storage for small craft items. Finials on the top help corral rolls of wrapping paper. Clear jars hold ribbons, beads, or buttons. To round up pretty paper scraps, toss them into an open-top box.

    • Ribbon Round-Up

      A small tension rod is a clever way to add extra storage to a short or narrow shelf. Thread spools of ribbon on the rod for easy, tangle-free access.

    • Cute Tool Storage

      Scissors, pens, and paintbrushes can easily get lost in the shuffle when hidden in a drawer. Store similar tools together in clean, paper-wrapped cans.

      See the next slide for instructions for making tool can.

    • Tool Can How-To

      To make a paper-wrapped tool can, simply measure the height and circumference of an empty, clean can. Cut a piece of paper per your measurements, adding 1/2" to the length for overlapping. Use double-stick tape under the edges to secure the paper to the can. Use craft glue to embellish with ribbons, flowers, or buttons.

    • Stacked Storage

      For a fun twist, wrap several tool cans in coordinating patterned papers and stack in a pyramid shape. Use a hot glue gun to attach the cans to each other. When completely dry, set on a desktop or worktable for easy tool access. Use the same idea with gallon cans to store larger items.

    • Crafty Workbox

      Make your craft projects go more smoothly by organizing everything in a durable workbox. With multiple trays, it will keep your thread, pins, buttons, and fabric handy and portable.

    • Inexpensive Storage Bins

      Two hanging bars and six bins can turn a stretch of wall into craft storage central. Hang the bins over a worktable to hold ribbons and trims or above a desk to stash pens and notepads. Plus, the affordable plastic bins are colorful and washable.

    • Storage Carousel

      Dress up the top of an industrial parts bin with scrapbooking paper cut to fit. Then, fill the slide-out bins with rubber bands, paper clips, and pushpins for use on a desk or with pins, buttons, and thread for a sewing center.

    • Simple and Functional

      Replacement covers for outdoor sconces make sturdy containers to hold art supplies. The wide, heavy bases minimize tipping and the grooved sides add a fun detail. At around $2.50 a piece, they are a real steal and look equally cute on a desktop or in a crafts cabinet.
