Scrapbook Brad Storage

Scrapbooking and storage go hand and hand.  It seems we are all in a never ending quest for the next storage idea that will solve all our needs.

The other day Susy came up with an idea.  She said to me, brads often come displayed in flat packaging.  Why couldn't they be stored that way?

It was a valid question and she quickly came up with this flat brad storage solution.

The folded paper keeps the brads from scratching each other and the tabs make it easy to find the brad you are looking for.

Making this brad storage solution is very easy.

Cut a 12x12 paper down to 5 x 3/4 by 12.
Cut the file tab into the paper with Tim Holtz Alterations File Tab On The Edge Dies

Fold the paper in half.


Count your brads so you can properly space your brads on the top half of the paper.  Then use a paper piercer to poke holes in your paper and add your brads.
