Craft Supply Inventory Binder

Do You Have a Ton of Craft Supply Inventory?

Craft Supply Inventory can be one of those things that is super hard to keep track of.  When I go to the store, it’s quite hard to remember what I already have on hand and what I need to get more of.  So since this is the year of getting organized, I knew I needed to sit down and make a craft supply inventory binder.

When I go shopping and happen into my favorite craft store, I will now be carrying my craft supply inventory binder which will prevent me from purchasing duplicate products.  I’m able to quickly thumb through the pages I’ve put in the binder and see what I already have on hand before filling my cart with crafty goodness.  This will help save money in the long run as I will only be buying things I don’t already have.  Who can remember all of that?

Binder Sections

The divider for each section was made with a piece of cardstock from the K&Company 8-1/2-Inch by 8-1/2-Inch Ancestry.Com Scrapbook Album Kit.  I cut the paper down to 5  7/8 in. to 8  3/4 in. to fit the mini binder.

I distressed the edges using the distress tool from my Making Memories Distressing Kit.

I used a regular hole punch to punch the three holes for the binder, then I inked the edges of the paper with the Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad, Tea Dye.

In order to get the divider tab, I used the ancestry.com paper and my Tim Holtz File Tabs die to cut out the tab.  The Sizzix Bigz Die – Tiny Tabs & Tags by Tim Holtz will also work for this.

I stamped the name of the section on the file tabs using the Miniature Alphabet and Punctuation Marks Rubber Stamp Set by Hampton Art.

I also used a stencil and Stickles to put the section name on the divider page.  The final step was to actually set up the inventory sheets and add them to the craft supply inventory binder.

The short video below provides a walk through of my craft supply inventory binder so that you can see how it all came together.

Keeping track of products I already have on hand reduces the chance of buying duplicate items which saves money, space, and frustration.  I just have to remember to take it with me when I’m headed to the craft stores.

I hope this post was helpful to you all as you work on your own organization.  This is a big step to my goal of getting organized for more efficient crafting and one project out of the begun and never done pile!  Yay me!

Happy Crafting!
