A lack of craft room space to both organize, store and work on your scrapbooking creations is a problem that many of us have. I don't know one scrapper who hasn't sat down to work on a layout and felt frustrated that their craft supplies are all over the place.
It's easy to feel overwhelmed and give up when it comes to finding craft room organization ideas for small spaces but it can be done, and many scrappers have done it before us!
From utilizing a useless small space under the stairs to clever and creative cabinets through to using your wall space because there is just no more floor space, here are 20 of the best craft room organization ideas and tips for small spaces.
21. Final Thoughts
Make use of your wall space with a pegboard wall like this Ikea SKADIS pegboard.
Although it's not so great as a craft room storage for 12x12 papers, a pegboard like this works fantastic for nearly every other scrapbooking supply with the addition of other scrapbook storage ideas such as cups and hanging hooks.
This is a great craft room organization idea for keeping things up and off your limited floor space.
When you're storing scrapbook supplies in a tight place, you really have to be brutal about what stays and what goes.
Give your stash a decent clean out and get rid of the things that you don't use and/or are unlikely to use in the future.
See that pile of scrap paper in a tidy small bin. Well, I'm never going to use most of that so I recycled it to free up some space and created a few pieces of DIY textured paper.
Cube shelving is ideal for a small space craft room and is a popular choice when it comes to storage ideas for small spaces.
Each square shelf can be fitted out with fabric buckets or some kind of boxes to store all of your craft supplies.
Your paper can go on one shelf and your supplies can be stored in the fabric buckets or behind doors on another shelf.
Below is Ikea's KALLAX series of cube shelving. This is the same shelf used two different ways and your 12 x 12 paper stacks will fit neatly within the cubes.
These shelves come in a variety of layouts and sizes making them suitable for any sized space.
I love a creative storage ideas hack! One of the ways to store your knives and scissors is by making use of a magnetic knife rack to store your scissors and metal craft knives on the wall.
The image below is a great Ikea hack in which the magnetic strip has been covered in fabric to make it look prettier.
Store your flat scrapbooking supplies in a storage binder.
Although this particular binder is shown storing cling stamps, other smaller supplies can be stored in the plastic sleeves also such as scrap paper, sticker, ribbon, die cuts and other embellishments.
You can just pop the whole thing away back in a cupboard or on your cube shelving when you're done scrapping for the day. Storage ideas like this leaves your craft room area neat and uncluttered.

Ikea is amazing when it comes to hacks for scrapbooking organization and storage ideas for a small space craft room!
These Ikea hanging shoe organizers are such a space saving tool and can be used for so much more than just to organize shoes.
You can free up your floor space by hanging them on a wall, from a curtain rod or behind a door. Obviously, it's not ideal for organizing your paper but it's great for smaller craft supplies such as scissors, pens and markers, craft knives, and other bits and bobs.
Most helpful craft room organization ideas for small spaces are completely DIY. I hung a rod that was purchased cheaply from my local home department store and made some hanging fabric storage solutions from scrap fabric.
Although I'm currently using the hanging bucket to store an unfinished sewing project, it could easily be used for my scrapbooking supplies. It would create a great gift wrapping or washi tape holder or lucky dip!
This over the door hanging rack from Amazon is designed for the kitchen and laundry but I just know that it will be perfect for storing scrapbook and other craft materials as well.
Hang it either on the back of a doorway entrance or the inside of a cupboard door to make the best use of your scrapbook craft room space.
The clear art storage containers from Amazon are stackable so they can be packed away inside a cupboard, under a table or even beside your desk when not in use.
They are large enough to store your scrapbooking paper and and get your other supplies organized and as a result, buying a number of them will work as an all-in-one solution for organizing your scrapbook supplies.

When you don't have a dedicated craft room space or only have limited space for organizing your scrapbook supplies, more often than not, you will have to mix your craft supplies in the same container when storing them.
This can be really hard when you're trying to find a particular item so make sure you label every single and organized container with what's inside it.
Check out this cute label maker on Amazon.
Rework a section of your closet, or perhaps a spare room or hallway closet into a usable craft organization space with some great storage that will fit inside the cupboard.
The below organizer from Amazon can be clipped together in different ways to suit a variety of spaces. Who needs spare clothes and shoes when you have craft materials?
Make use of a budget storage trolley or bins on wheels for your scrapbooking supplies.
This Ikea trolley not only looks cute, but can be rolled away under your table, inside a closet, or in a small space beside your desk when not in use.
Although it's not great for storing your 12 x 12 paper, it will hold many of your other scrapbooking supplies within its three shelves.
There are some great furniture shelves around but I particularly like the one below from Ikea as it has pigeon hole storage as well as a flat surface on top that can be used.
The pigeon holes can be used for paper and you could even install a magnet strip or a rod underneath to store even more scrapbooking supplies.
I love these six drawer craft carts on Amazon as the clear drawers are actually removable and can be completely taken out from your studio or office for an on-the-go social scrapping.
There is an organizer on top for craft supplies you are currently using and you can just roll the whole thing away in a closet when you're done scrapping for the day.
