Ok, so I have a problem. A very serious problem. I love American Crafts Thickers way too much. Basically Thickers are adhesive chipboard letters that come in a variety of colors and shapes. I use them quite a bit in a lot of my layouts.
As a result, my Thickers collection has become a storage nightmare. Trying to maintain incomplete alphabets while at the same time trying not to waste letters is challenging.
I came up with this storage solution to help curb that problem. These are actually Cropper Hopper 4×6 photo storage folders that I picked up at Hobby Lobby for about $5 (4 folders in a set). This solution isn’t just great for Thickers, I think it should work for any chipboard letter storage. You can see I use 4×6 index cards as dividers to keep all the groups of letters separate. Right now I’m only using this for Thickers, but eventually I plan on adding all my other chipboard letters, organized by alphabet, into these folders.
Cropper Hopper also makes another storage solution that would probably work as well and actually has 13 built in dividers. Of course, on the other hand you’re expandability is limited with one of these.
