My flair collection is growing and I hate digging through them looking for something, how do you store them where you can see them all at once?

I'm no help, I have a fairly small stash and just store them in a pretty bowl on my desk. If I had more I would have them on a display board or cork board so they can look pretty too.

I just ordered another 20 from my fav eTsy seller, I will keep them in a bowl still but have taken the sticky dots off the back of them all. I adhere mine with helmar450 glue so it isn't a problem for me.

Hooroo! & Happy Scrapping !!

I don't have a lot of flair badges, so I keep them in a plastic bead container. What about an over the door jewelry hanger? I've seen those for earrings, so they would probably fit a badge or two in each.

OK, I just had a total DUH! moment!

I just throw them in a little basket or leave them in their packs... but I was thinking about MercyTiaras storage and then thought... hmmm, I use those magnetic sheets for my artbin die storage thingy, so maybe I could use one of the blank sheets?? I will have to try this out tomorrow and see if it works!

I just use them they are too expensive to store up I am scared I will get bored with them if I invest too much into them. Another little stash is crossing the Atlantic right now on its way to me

I have mine in an old Prima tin. I just love hearing the fun noise when I dig through them. I also make my own a lot now too so no need for storage as I make it as I create.

I had a magnetic folder from QuicKutz that had stored my Nestabilities. I had to move them to an Art Bin container after I bought too many... I now use the QuicKutz folder for flair badges. It works great!

While on this subject, I have a question about something I've wondered about for some time now...... those of you who store your flair in jars, tins or other containers, do you remove the ones that come on cards such as Fancy Pants, October Afternoon, etc. and combine all of your flair together loosely? Right now, I'm still storing those on my embellishment shelf by manufacturer but I'm also finding that I want to start being able to see them all together at one time.

mine all have sticky stuff on the back so if i store in a jar or other type container, the backing always peels off and they stick together. How do you combat that? or do you remove the sticky and add your own later? lol

Kelly Goree - I just cut the plactic backing sheet closely around each Flair so that some plastic remains on each button and I can easily sift through the Flair in a little ceramic bowl.

I have mine all in one layer in clear DVD cases. They fit perfectly and do not shift around. I think I have about six cases full.

I just took all mine off backing & out of packs this weekend & sorted them by color in plastic jewelry storage container. The kind that has about 20 individual compartments that you get at HL for 1.99. I thought about doing the magnetic sheet thing but am afraid I would run out of room when my latest embellishment order from her comes

mine are in a large clear glass candy jar. I dump them out on a large tray and sift through it all to find what I need.

So far, mine have all come on a cardboard backing or sorted in glassine envelopes. I am keeping them as they have come. Now that said, I have a nice order coming this week from Etsy. I'm not sure how those will be packaged, so I may have to re-visit after they arrive.

Flairs seem to be my new obsession. I just need to start using them. I've only used 1 on a layout, but loved it.

Mine are in a 9 drawer plastic unit. I tried to divide them up as best I could into 9 categories and labeled each drawer.

Might not help you but I store my embellishments by color. Brads, flair, eyelets, buttons, etc all go in one jar sorted by color. I put them on my desk so they are close by when working on a layout. I can just dig out what I want.

You know the plastic molded trays that come in the packages with POW glitter and such? I keep those, and they fit flair perfectly. I can't see them all at once, but I am able to store them with each set, so it's quick to thumb through them, and all of the numbers, days of the week, etc. are in order! Those trays are sitting inside of a rubbermaid three drawer container on my scrappy table, so they are within reach also.

I sort mine by color with the rest of my small embellishments. I have 9 sets of those little 3-drawer plastic organizers from Target (the medium sets), and use one set for each color. One drawer is buttons, bling, flair, and dimensional stuff, one is for stickers, die cuts, and chipboard (I cut apart sticker and chipboard sheets and sort the individual pieces by color), and one is for really big stuff.
