I keep my larger scraps in an Iris box, and my tiny scraps in a small Longaberger basket on my desk. I go through both after I choose my background paper and photos. I hardly have any scraps. Best system I've ever had for scraps. It works for me.

I keep 3 small boxes going. In one I keep papers cut for 8 x 8 books. In another I keep papers cut for 6 x 6 books. In the third I keep odd leftovers cut into several different sizes that I use for photo mats or small die cuts. I just cut and file them as I'm going along. Much less wasted paper for me this way.

I was asked this question the other day, and I tried to find the photos I took the last time I was asked this question, but I couldn't I'll have to take some more.

I have a clear accordion file with a section for each colour: silver, gold, purple, pink, red, brown, yellow/orange, green, aqua, blue, white, black and assorted. Inside each section I also have a small bag for the tiny pieces so that they don't get lost in the general mass. Then I can just lift the bag out if I want something small for a card. I don't throw anything away until it looks like lace!

I got them all in a 12x12 plastic storage box. I hate the way I keep them. I need to separate them by color. Might do this soon. It's been on my mind.

I have them organized in little file folders I cut down inside a box I recovered. The ones too big for the box are in an accordian file.

Mine are in a plastic "shoe box" which I don't mind. It's convenient & I pretty much know what's in there, although it's in no particular color order. I just need to go through it & pitch some perhaps....

Cardstock scraps are in drawers according to color. PP scraps, I usually keep them with the whole set of papers and embellies that go together in plastic envelopes.

I keep mine in a drawer. Out of sight, out of mind, which means I pretty much never remember to use them.
