My New Cricut Cartridge Storage System

Hi everyone! I haven't got much crafting done lately, I have been organizing my Cricut cartridges! I ran out of room on my shelf and keep buying more so I figured it was time for a change. I found a lot of great tips on the Cricut messageboard and on youtube. I decided to remove all of the books, overlays and cartridges from their packaging and store them using a file system. It was a lot of work! I bought some Iris plastic stacking drawers from Bed Bath and Beyond. I couldn't believe how perfect the dimensions of the drawers were! To make the file folders I scanned the back of each cartridge box and resized it in Microsoft Word to fit. I made the green tabs with the From My Kitchen cartridge. Once I had the folders together I laminated them with my YourStory machine. I decided to make little boxes for my cartridges to protect them. I used a bag cut from Once Upon a Princess and altered it with my Gypsy to fit.

I think I am really going to like this new system - it just seems so much easier to find the cartridge I want! I have put all of the cartridge boxes in a large rubbermaid in the storage room so they are there in case I ever change my mind. I tend to do that once in a while ;-)


  1. omg I love it. I wish I had seen this before I got my storage!

  2. This looks great. And yes lots of work, but much less space and easier to find cartridges. Especially for me who has to look through everyone all the time=)

  3. Way to Cool! How many cartridges fit in one drawer?
