Crafters working on heat transfer vinyl products could literally spend hours on Pinterest for the best craft vinyl storage strategies.

2. Crafty Storage Cart

My gut told me that a special cart that the Silhouette could sit on, with storage below for all of the accessories, would be the most ideal solution. I don't enjoy sitting at the counter height workspace because it is not comfortable or ergonomic for longer periods of time, it really functions better to stand and craft. That is why we added a second desk height workspace for computing. Therefore, I was on the hunt for something to tuck between the two base cabinets, with storage for the Silhouette and all the accessories. And I found the perfect solution, in the oddest of places... the children's department. The STUVA storage dresser (from Ikea) was calling my name!

I was able to easily fit everything into my new miniature portfolio that is solely for scraps! It’s 9″ x 12″ and is the perfect size for scraps of all kinds, even the tiny little bits that I just can’t bring myself to throw away. Since it’s so compact, I can easily slide it onto a shelf.

5. DIY Vertical Organizer  

I looked into some pre-built paper storage solutions, but … they are very pricey! DIY to the rescue! I came up what I’m calling my Paper Tower of Power, and you’re going to love this for your scrapbook paper. It’s a 12×12 Vertical Scrapbook Paper Storage Organizer that I put together myself from things that are easily obtained. It holds a LOT of paper, and fits both 12×12 scrapbook paper and regular letter size. This is one my IKEA hacks. So it’s not very expensive, and you can customize it to your needs. If a vertical tower isn’t right for you, or you need more storage, the IKEA unit I use comes in many different sizes and configurations.

7. Easy Gridwall Vinyl Organizer

Like a lot of my crafting hobbies, my vinyl collection had gotten out of hand. I was resorting to a Rubbermaid tub with the vinyl rolled up in giant rolls inside, but it looked like a Rubbermaid tub wrestling an octopus with all of the vinyl sticking up and fighting it's way out. It was time to get it under control. Pegboard seemed to be my best option. I could always paint it to pretty it up, but I like super-simple, non-busy things. Right next to the pegboard was a gridwall. BINGO!
