When I grabbed stuff to do the Christmas cards this year I found my sticker situation very stressful. In the beginning I did not have much of a system at all. I had a couple extra binders and put pocket folders in them. I preceded to label and sort the stickers into the folders. It was not very pretty but it worked me (better than a huge pile anyways). A year or so later Mom and I were going to garage sales and she pointed out a scrapbook accordion folder that was stuffed with stickers. I bought it of course.
Now over the last few years I have purchased stickers at cheap sale prices or at dollar stores. I than just threw them in on of the pockets of the accordion folder I now had. Now these stickers were about 80% organized before I bought them; so it could have been worse. For me though it was not my system and having two different spots just hasn’t worked out.
I grabbed one of the large binders I had (was for the last university course I was in) and a bunch of page protectors I use for letters, cards, and miscalenous I receive from people. I’ve made make shift labels and taped them on with packing tape. There’s no garentee this will work out but at least I can take out the group I want and dump it out to see everything. The accordion folder hides the small sheets of stickers. So really what good is that?
Not only that I needed another organizer for the specialty papers, print papers, and card stock I have. Seven years a go I had boughten an accourdion folder from Michaels (containing not so fancy print paper) in the regular scrapbooking page size. I have this filled to the brim. Everything works out in the end.
In the end I used two binder and found more stickers that need to be put away properly. These binders are already bursting so I’ve got to finish up some of these projects and not buy anymore unless I have a current specific need for them.
