17 Ways to Organize Your Craft Supplies

Crafting is a slippery slope of creative messes. You start with a little project and carefully store all your supplies in a neat box. Then, the next thing you know, washi tape and glitter have taken over your house, and you’re finding craft supplies in your kitchen and bathroom drawers. If this sounds like you, here are 17 tips to get that mess back under control so that you can start feeling creative again.

1. Washi Tape Holder: If you’re anything like us, washi tape is one of your favorite go-tos for crafting. But sometimes those little rolls can be a pain to store. You want to be able to see them all! Try painting a bracelet holder and hanging them on there for a pretty storage option. (via Crafts Unleashed)
