Stencil creativity isn't just for art - it is also for figuring out how to store the stencils! As I, Carolyn, followed up on the Tale of Goldilocks and her Stencil Storage I learned there are lots of creative people getting hooked! J Hooked that is!
The J Hook. The hanging tab. Whatever it's called, it is magic when it comes to storing stencils! There are so many ways to store your stencils but they all seem to need some way to hang them.
The easiest place I have found to get my hands on them is at Uline. I buy them by the 500's and you might think that is a lot...but no. I use these hang tabs to store stencils as well as other supplies. Amazon occassionally has them here. It might say not available, but every couple of weeks they seem to become available again.
Getting the Clip It Up is getting harder since Simply Renee is closing so the supply is limited. That didn't stop Karin! She bought an extremely affordable shoe rack on Amazon and created a stencil tree! She was even nice enough to make a video showing how she converted it for stencils!

Celeste created a stencil rack just the right size and height for her workspace by using the wire frame of a lamp and J hooks to hold the stencils. Love that it takes up very little desk space!
