Border Tip

I have a quick tip for you today. Are you happy with how you store your bulletin board border? Wouldn't you like it to stay straight and be easy to access? Here is what I do:

All you need is a long closet, binder clips and these 3M Command hooks.
What do you think? Works great for me.

  1. I'm going to steal this idea! I store them in circular boxes and it is difficult making them straight again.
    Thanks

    1. Yep, original plastic. I had a few without plastic and it works fine to clip the border directly, too!

  16. For those that don't have the border bags, why not use newspaper bags - tear through (or cut) bottom of one bag and tape to another - if not tall enough you could use 3 bags together. Or even umbrella bags from Publix/Walmart shoud work! Love keeping them visible and organized thanks so much!!

  17. Great idea! I usually store mine in sentence strip boxes, but those can be so bulky (and not all borders fit!) Thanks for sharing! - Kate @ The Wise Owl

  18. Has anyone tried just doing a hole punch and hanging them on command hooks?? Does that work?

  19. You could also re-staple the tops on and hang them from the hole that they hung from in the store...or make your own out of card stock and a hole-punch.
