If you’re a crafter, you know how quickly things start to pile up. Yes, I do need that many different types of scissors and that many colors of ribbon! If you have a designated craft area either large—lucky!—or small, it’s nice to (at least try to) keep it organized, especially if it’s in a part of your home that’s not off-limits to guests. Craft supplies are often so fun and colorful, which makes them look great on display, so instead of fighting the craft chaos, embrace your stuff and be both organized and stylish with one of these 10 smart storage solutions.
