13 Craft Storage Ideas

Crafter's Companion – 09/03/22

Staying organised is one of the biggest challenges that we crafters face. There’s nothing like having to dig through all of your supplies (only to find an essential item missing) to put a damper on your burst of inspiration. Enter craft storage!

Whether your craft space is large or limited, with our range of craft storage ideas you’ll be organised in no time. And what is more pleasing and welcoming than a beautifully arranged craft space?

How do you organise craft supplies in a small space?

Whether you only have a small space to craft, or you have an entire room dedicated to your creativity, we’ve all had to dig through boxes looking for the glue stick or had to rifle through papers on the desk to find the scissors. Here are our recommendations for storage for crafts to help you stay organised during a crafting session and keep your space tidy. Ideal for small craft rooms or shared spaces.

Save space with clever storage

For those without a dedicated crafting space, storage can be tricky, especially when you need access to all of your supplies. Utilising some clever craft storage ideas can make all the difference to maximising your craft time and minimising set-up time.

The Ditto Tote by Totally Tiffany is a versatile and unique storage tote that is big enough for all of your supplies no matter their shape and size. The handle is great for easy transportation and the whole thing opens out so you can see everything at once. It features multiple pockets in varying sizes and can be used to store everything you need. When you’re done simply fold it back up, pick it up, and place it back on a shelf or in the cupboard for next time. 

If you’re trying to save precious table space, some hanging storage might be the perfect solution for you. The Craft Storage Case features roomy zip-up pockets for all your bits and bobs. It unrolls with a hook at the top so you can hang it above a desk or on the back of a door. It’s the perfect way to access your crafting essentials and can be taken on the go as well. 

The Portable Craft Room storage bag is ideal for crafters who need access to their whole stash. Featuring pockets and storage space for all of your supplies, this large storage solution can be wheeled around . And it comes with zip-up pouches in a variety of different sizes to store all of your tools and supplies in. Simply zip it up when you’re done and roll it away for easy storage.

Making on the move

There are many reasons why you’d want to make your craft kit portable. From attending craft workshops and courses to taking your kit on holiday, many crafters like to make on the move.

The Crafter’s Companion Deluxe Tote Case is the perfect size for taking to and from your craft workshops or to pack for a week away. Keep your craft essentials neat and organised in the multiple pockets of different sizes and carry it around easily with the roomy carry handles. This is the perfect versatile option for on-the-go crafting storage. 

Go from cluttered to creative with the Totally Tiffany Craft & Carry Workstation and corral all the supplies for the project you’re currently working on. The high, flat back can sit flush against a wall, enabling you to make the most of the space on your desktop. No more buried scissors and no more lost embellishments. Everything has its own visible, accessible place within easy reach.

With 15 individual pockets, the Craft & Carry Workstation has a place for everything. The pockets are designed to hold scissors, rulers, 12” x 12” paper and much more. Whether you’re crafting at home or away, this portable workstation will keep all of your crafty supplies perfectly organised.

Keep it visible

Transparent storage is one of the best ways to keep all of your supplies visible without them cluttering up your workspace. Buddy Bags from Totally Tiffany are a whole range of transparent bags made from sturdy vinyl and perfectly sized to hold every type of craft supply. From 12” x 12” paper pads to pens, glitter pots and stamps, the list goes on and the storage possibilities are endless. 

Correct storage for your markers is important to ensure they last as long as possible, but it’s also important to keep your creativity flowing. Make sure you keep all your pens within reach and grab the next perfect colour right when you need it with the Spectrum Noir stackable pen trays.

Desktop storage is ideal for organizing your trusty tools that you know you’ll return to time and time again. The desktop 6 Level Supply Stadium is perfect for storing rubber stamps and other supplies you want to easily grab. While the Tool Tower is better suited to keeping your brushes, pencils, and tweezers in check.

Keep small tools safe and secure

Small dies, stamps and scraps of patterned paper can be easily lost. Keep your smaller supplies neat and tidy, and ready to use with some purpose made storage files. 

The Desk Maid by Totally Tiffany is a great way to keep paper and dies in check. The wooden frame holds 10 pull-out wood panels designed to hold thin metal dies. Simply pull out a panel, and find the die you want for your project. Each drawer features a tab to serve as both a handle and a label for easy access to your supplies. And the Desk Maid can be used either horizontally or vertically, to suit your crafting space.

We’ve all had our crafting flow interrupted after struggling to find that one piece of patterned paper, or sentiment stamp that would tie your creation together perfectly. Cue many minutes of burrowing through boxes, bins, and bags before emerging dusty and triumphant with that elusive last piece of the puzzle. 

If this sounds all too familiar, then The Totally Tiffany ScrapRack storage system may just be the solution for you! It features multiple different sets of rings to snap pocket files into place and a sturdy cover to protect all your supplies. This unique ring binder storage file is perfect for keeping all of your flat crafting supplies in one place. No more hunting around in boxes, simply flip through the files and find exactly what you need in no time at all. 

If you’re looking for a versatile way to store your dies, the Small Die and Stamp Folder is a fantastic option. This folder comes with 6 magnetic sheets which hold your metal dies in place and make them easy to retrieve when you need them.

Protect your projects

Whether life interferes and you need to pause partway through a project, or you need somewhere safe to store a finished piece until it’s needed, having the right storage to hand is essential to preventing damage and to make sure it doesn’t get lost. 

The Fab File range from Totally Tiffany is the perfect way to keep things protected and secure. From handmade cards to part-finished embroidery projects, use the individual pocket files to store them away ready for next time. Label each file to remind yourself of the contents and jot down any notes on the notecard. Perfect for reminding yourself what colours or materials you used and any other information you might forget.

Not just for unfinished projects, Fab Files can also be used to store documents, instruction manuals, and even special memories!
