Tips & Tricks: File Folder Photo Storage

by Megan Hoeppner

Here's a scrapbooking photo-storage tip that you can put together in a flash. Fill a library card tray like this one from 7gypsies with your collection of photos that are waiting to be scrapbooked. Cover the included file dividers using patterned paper to complement your surroundings. With this idea, you'll have a unique décor piece of your space while keeping your photos at your fingertips.

When it comes to organizing your folder holder, you have several options. Take a look at the list below, and select an option that works for you.

1. Organize your images by date, labeling each folder for a different month or year.

2. Organize your images by person, labeling each folder with the name of a different loved one.

3. Organize your images by groups, labeling each folder with the names of different family and friends (e.g., sisters, friends, co-workers, etc.).

4. Organize your images by major events, labeling each folder for a different occasion (e.g., birthdays, holidays, weddings, vacations, etc.).
