Hang loose Technically Joy Bohon’s idea is not “container” related, but I found it too good to ignore. To make use of vertical space, Joy installed two Wal-Mart curtain rods in an empty closet. The rods now hold stickers, rub-ons and other flat embellishments hung with metal rings purchased at an office supply store. Joy’s supplies are not only easy to glance through, but are decorative and inspiring as well.
Have character Infuse your space with style by using quirky, novelty items as effective storage. You’ve seen “false books” designed to conceal valuables. Wendy Woodby uses one, discovered in the “import” section of Hobby Lobby, to contain her thread and sewing supplies. Not only is the false book the perfect size for ribbon and small embellishments, you can imagine the homey touch a row of these would bring to your scraproom!
