Oh my gosh, how timely is this! I, too, have been saving magazine and printed articles and had the same problem you had....with no remedy in sight. Until, that is, I came across your gallery! What a unique and innovative idea - and a great way to use up some of those extra slabs and chipboard. We get plenty of 8-1/2 x 11 chipboard at work, which comes packaged with documents and other supplies. This is a great way to use up the extras!
Thanks for the great idea - and yours look great!
What a GREAT idea! TFS!
<font color='brown'>Wow, you have come up with a fantastic storage solution for all of us! Thanks for sharing this one!!! </font> <img border='0' src='/images/icons/grin.gif'>
<img border='0' src='/images/icons/laugh.gif'> Thanks for the idea. I have just started going thu my old mags for articles so I can 'pare down' my stash. Thanks for the storage idea!
I'm LOVING this idea and TOTALLY going to do it. I agree, notebooks are just too bulky and that takes putting them in protectors, etc. This is great...you can just unclip and stick it in!
very smart idea!

I have stored magazine articles and printed-out articles a bunch of different ways, but I never was really happy. Folders of all kinds were a pain, notebooks were too bulky and the page protectors were a PITA, and the random stacks I had been using lately were just too random. In my stash I had a package of report backing board (chipboard). Eureeka! I took two pieces of the chipboard and sandwiched the articles in between, and clipped them with a binder clip. I covered the front with patterned paper that came from stacks/slabs that I liked but was pretty sure I would never use. Now I have my articles organized, but it is easy to open and flip through and they really don't take up that much space. Some of my categories are: sketches, layouts, journaling, photography, BasicGrey newsletters, BPS classes, scraprooms and supply organization, projects, and crafts.
