CRAFTING TIP OF THE WEEK (#132 ) Get a LID on it!

Or a LID RACK for it!

For what you ask? A lid rack for your paper trimmers, score boards, stamp press, cutting mats & other regularly used , large tools.

The racks I speak of look like this:

Vertical pot/cutting board/baking sheet rack

Counter top rack

These functional racks can hold some of your most used paper crafting tools nearby on your desk top or any counter space. Or if you don't have counter space you can easily nail the vertical holder on the wall & use your wall space. These racks help you store your items, see them, access them easily & put them away easily.

Here's what I did with mine:

Side View************************************************************

As you can see, I was able to get several paper trimmers, the Martha Stewart Score Board & my Fiskars Stamp Press stored on this lid rack. There is a total of 7 tools right @ my fingertips & @ the ready.

I purchased mine @ Target for under $10 but shortly after- while browsing in Big Lots, I saw a white one for $3.

This is working out really well for me & I thought you all could benefit from my discovery.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. you always have the best storage ideas!! Thanks for sharing yet another one :)

  2. Okay, now that is an awesome idea. Need to get me one now

  3. oh, this is wonderful. I have been trying to come up with an idea on where to put my trimmers and love this. I especially like this rack because it will hold the CM mini trimmer (love it). I'm going to Target to see if I can find one today !! Thanks Sonia :)

  4. Fasbulous idea!!!! I think I might keep my eyes open whenever I happen to be at Goodwill. I bet they have some there from time to time. I have found all kinds of goodies there...A coat of spray paint or two and the stuff is usually good as new!!

  5. This is a fantastic idea! My trimmer is always in the way.....you have the best ideas and yet again I'm scratching my head thinking "why didn't I think of that"?!
