I finally came up with a system for my card stock scraps. I bought twelve 3-drawer containers from Wal-Mart. In each drawer, I put a divider I made from two sheets of Wal-Mart white card stock scored and glued together.
Brilliant!!! organize construction paper in plastic files. Keep scraps in the green hanging folders that separate the colors. Crates also work. This makes them stackable and portable and easily used by students. No more mess and damaged paper! Great idea!
Lastly and most importantly, my color sorted scraps! I would be nothing if it weren't for my scraps! Seriously. I use these for EVERYTHING, and so do my boys! There is no scrap too big or too small for cards, tags, flowers, punching circles or covering a jar... truly, the possibilities for scraps are endless!!!
Great idea: "I decided to use a plastic shoe box for my paper scraps. I cut a small circle of each color and glued it to a manila divider. All of my solid color scraps are within reach, so I tend to use them before going for a full sheet of card stock."
