5 Stationery Storage Ideas

Journaling, keeping a diary, writing in a notebook, that all requires a trove of pens, stickers. 

1. Washi Tape Container

I used to keep all my washi tape in a shallow drawer but it was difficult to keep the rolls in a straight line. They would roll around and require reorganisation every few months as well. 

These containers however, are perfect.

They fit both regular and smaller rolls of washi tape. Wider tape might fit but will need to be rotated. 1 box fits around 45 rolls of tape and is easy to stack. Plus the box is clear which makes it really easy to find what you need without creating a big mess. 

2. Fusen and other card sized stickers/labels

Fusen/labels tend to come in card sized packaging which makes it portable and great for your on the go kit, but what happens when they accumulate? 

I discovered this hack on instagram recently, and the idea is to store all of the card sized fusen into a trading card sleeve/pockets.  

This won't work with a business card holder, trading card pockets are wider and it works for card sized fusen packaging because of the thickness. Also, compared to business card holders which are landscape oriented, trading card pockets are portrait, which means they won't drop out easily, are easier to access and look great! 

You can buy specialty trading card folders/pockets. Daiso also sells it's own A5 folder version, which I've featured here. 

3. Sticker Folder 

Hands up if you have too many sheets of stickers! The best way to store them is in sticker folders. In fact, we carry a few designs on our Etsy store.

4. Pens 

The Ikea Raskog trolley is a popular choice for crafters because it's inexpensive, easy to assemble, comes in a number of cute colours and matches most rooms. I use the top of the trolley to store pens by filling it up with pen cups and pen holders from places such as Muji and H&M. 

5. Everything else 

And finally, if you can't find a solution for what you're trying to store. The Daiso clear shoe boxes are cheap, stackable and a fits most things. I use it to store loose items like sticker rolls, craft punches and even packaging that I want to keep. Clear always make it easier to find what you're looking for. 

Hope the above is useful and if you have any suggestions, leave it in the comments below!
