I found a great tip for homemade pop dots this weekend and posted it on my  
website.  Anyone want to find out how to make them check it out!  I can't  
believe I didn't think of this on my own!

ps.  under "Get organized" and then paper storage, there is step by step  
instructions of making your own paper shelving for 12 x 12 paper.  



Re: Homemade Pop Dots!
I can't believe I didn't think of this either. What a duh moment. And I use  
the foam to make shadow boxes and glue the pieces together. I could have  
been just running it through the Xyron all this time......
Thanks, Jennifer.

Interesting Idea Jen!! TFS!

Cool ideas!  Love it!  Also really love your layout of Kamryn with the  
floral paper cut into rounded squares in the background as a mosaic  
effect.  Totally stealing that idea some day!

Re: Homemade Pop Dots!
Very cool technique! Thanks for sharing that with us. Now I guess I
need to go buy a xyron. LOL.

I had read somewhere that if you cut foil w/scissor it will sharpen them.  
wonder if that would work w/punches.

I have tried that and it worked a little but I have found that the thing  
that works THE BEST is sandpaper.

Re: Homemade Pop Dots!
That's cool.  I'll have to reread the instructions with some foam in my  
hand.  I didn't quite understand it the first time around.  I'm such a  
visual learner!  LOL  I wonder if the cost doing it that way is much  
different than buying them?

Storage, WAS: Homemade Pop Dots!

Just wanted to say, the wire storage idea inspired me to totally redo my  
whole room.  I used to have my paper in these plastic trays on my book  
shelves, but I was running out of room.  So I made the wire rack tower  
like on your website, but of course I have nowhere to put it in my tiny  
bedroom in my apartment.  So, I moved the book shelves to the living  
room, took my dresser out of the closet and put it where the shelves  
were, and I'm creating a craft area in the closet!  Yay!  Now I need a  
wall mounted shelf in there for boxes (I have some shelves but they're  
too high) and a new dresser because mine is soooo ugly and I hate having  
it out where people can see it.

Re: Storage, WAS: Homemade Pop Dots!
Way to go Luna!  Sounds like you had some fun redesigning and getting  
organized.

Re: Storage, WAS: Homemade Pop Dots!
I did this same very thing.  I had 3 of the cubes already purchased in
my sewing room I was no longer using. So I took the ties and made my
own paper rack to store my paper.  But thanks for sharing the link.

Dug up this post so I could let you know I used your paper storage idea!  
Here's pics of my newly organized craft closet:

Yay!  Even though it's just a closet, it's so much better than putting  
that folding table out next to my bed every time I want to craft, and  
then having to move it or maneuver around it to get in and out of my  
room.

Looks great Luna.  Love the ribbon organization!  I was just fighting with  
my ribbon drawer!

Re: Homemade Pop Dots!
I think you did a great job of turning it into a space for you.
