Rubber Stamp Storage Ideas – Part 1


Is your craft room overflowing with oodles of rubber stamps that you just can’t get a handle on? Could you benefit from a pretty but portable storage solution to help get those unruly stamps under control?

Today I’d like to show you a few of the boxes I house my collection in. A peek inside will show you why they are so special!

First, the boxes contain a removable sectioned shelf that make sorting small to medium size stamps a breeze. The stamps in these boxes are categorized, although the order may appear random due to spacing issues.

Now, I’m sure you’re wondering – what lies underneath the top shelf?

More glorious storage space that is perfect for storing your larger stamps and accessories!

Finding an exact replicate of these boxes is challenging (trust me, I’ve tried!) However, you can find similar types of boxes in home decor stores, crafting stores, and sometimes even in the jewelry or cosmetic sections of department stores!

Question: Now that I’ve shared one of the ways I store my rubber stamps – how do you store yours? Feel free to leave a link in the comments if you have photos on your site for us to visit!

Have a wonderful What’s On Your Workspace Wednesday, dear friends!

    Now that is a clever storage box, just perfect with the extra top shelf. I love kitty she obviously knows whats in that box. My storage is very basic and I will try to do a post this week.

  7. SDCrafts says:

    That box is divine and inviting and inspirational. However, my own stamp storage is here and I love it too, for sentimental reasons.

    I am visiting from I ♥ Blogging! Thank you for joining our blog hop! I would love if you could stop by

  24. Julia Dunnit says:

    What a pretty way to store. Mine are upright, indexes facing out, about 3 deep on a corner shelf unit, so they can talk to me when I look at them for inspiration. And because I'm too lazy to get a box out and find one!!

  25. Mrs A. says:

    I'm afraid my meagre assortment of stamps are in a boring plastic see through box. Hugs Mrs A. #57

  28. Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards says:

    Ah, lovely storage… but you know it 'mazes me how people have so much time to pretty up their storage I dont seem to get to to it ever.. plain Jane perhaps.. but love the colours and prettiness and the stamp stash too
    Thanks for sharing and Happy WOYWW!
    love Shaz in Oz.x

  29. Doni says:

    Wow! Lots of fun stamps in there I see!!! Suppose your kitty will let me help myself???
    LOVE that box…I filled one of those with my laces the other day, now I'm second guessing myself…hmmmmmm. Looking forward to seeing part 2 of your post!
    Thanks too for joining me for Pearls and Lace Thursday! I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!

  30. Tertia says:

    That box is beautiful! I store mine in CD cases. Great minds think alike, I also showed my stamp storage this week.
    Happy WOYWW

  31. MaggieC says:

    Sadly, my collection of wooden stamps would not fill one layer of that beautiful box. Most of mine are unmounted, and just get filed in boring A4 box files.

  32. Michele's Scrapy Creations says:

    love your pretty box! right now they are not stored in any as I'm figuring out how i want them to be –put away in boxes like yours or on open shelves like most do. thanks for sharing.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

    What a fabulous collection of stamps you have!

  36. Terri Morse says:

    Oh my, your beautiful kitty steals the show! I adore cats and your beauty makes me want to hug him! Your boxes are a pretty way to keep all those rubber stamps from taking over. When I had my huge collection of wooden stamps, my hubby made me these wonderful shelves-they were only one and a half inches wide-just enough to set my stamps on. The covered an entire wall in my studio. These days, I mostly use clear stamps-they're easier to store. I have a pink file box with dividers that fit tons of stamps. Have a great weekend. Terri

  37. Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti says:

    This is a pretty way to store rubber stamps and art supplies. I also love cat atamps :0) I have a few plastic multi drawer carts on wheels where I store mine. The larger drawers on the bottom of the carts hold paper and other supplies. I wheel them out of my closet when I want to play with the stamps, and then wheel them back in out of sight when I'm done.
    It was nice to find your blog through Pink Saturday!

  38. Maison Mutt says:

    Clever! I have mine in a plastic box…looks like that will be changing soon! Happy PS!
    Licks & Wags, Niki

  39. Char says:

    You not only have a wonderful collection of rubber stamps, but you have a great way of keeping and storing them. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  40. Laura Ingalls Gunn says:

    Oh I just love your organizational skills!

    Last Monday I did a tutorial on a pink party favor which you might enjoy. I am now organizing a Spring altered matchbook swap if you are interested.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  43. Kezzy says:

    Love the box. Happy Pink Saturday!

  45. Donnie says:

    I have a similar style box that Roberta from Con*tain*it sent me. Very useful.

  46. Jeanne says:

    Ny cousin has tons of stamps much like yours. She has a tiered container in her craft room. Your box idea is awesome. Love the pretty pink.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  47. Lynn says:

    I used similiar type boxes for my photos, CD's and such, so by the time I get to the rubber stamps I have left, I simply put them in clear plastic boxes. Love your boxes. Happy PS

  48. Sarah says:

    That's a great idea! I usually just chuck mine in a drawer! 🙁 You can find boxes like that at Michael's craft store and JoAnn's too.

    HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!
