I have been a fan of Totally-Tiffany.com for about a year, since I discovered her wonderful see-through plastic organizers. I absolutely LOVE her Karen bag. It’s made for card makers, but I have found a wonderful use for it — organizing embossing folders!
I recently won a Tim Holtz Vagabond 2 embossing machine, and also received quite a few embossing folders with it. I got about 20 more embossing folders at Tuesday Morning for $1.00-$1.49 each. I quickly found that I needed a way to keep them safe and organized.
I started by making a file folder on my Cricut machine, and added a tab to the top. After cutting the folder out, I embossed the front of the folder with the embossing folder contained within. I labeled the folder with a name that I would remember and find — NOT with the manufacturer’s name. That doesn’t help me at all.
I then used the hard plastic laminated dividers that come with the Karen bag to make alpha tags. I filed the embossing folders alphabetically, and I’m done!
It’s easy for me to use both at home, and away, and the clear see-through bags are ideal for easily spotting the folder you need. No more digging through something to try to find the one I need.
If you’re looking for a relatively inexpensive and portable way to organize your embossing folders, you can’t beat Totally Tiffany’s Karen bags! I’ve included a link so that you can buy your own.
