DIY Photo Box Keep Your Pictures Safe

We take pictures to hold on to past moments so that we can take them out, look at them, and remember. Over a lifetime, most of us will amass a lot of photos. And while the prevalence of digital photography means that many pictures taken nowadays are never printed, there’s still something special about holding a real photo that digital just can’t equal. That’s why we want to take good care of the photos that we have so that we’ll hopefully always be able to enjoy them.

Using archival grade DIY Photo Box to store your precious photos is a good strategy for keeping them safe. The benefit of using purchased boxes to using just any old box for storing photos is that you can know they are acid-free. This means that acid won’t come into contact with your photos, causing them to discolor or worse. Archival photo storage boxes are also constructed with stronger materials (usually some type of archival quality board)and can also have reinforced edges to provide protection where you are most likely to need it. Also important, especially for people with a lot of photos, is that these boxes are stackable, where shoeboxes might collapse if you attempted to stack a lot of them.

Crafting Supplies

These are the ways you can organize your crafting supplies.

Collect all the crafting supplies that you have. You can start finding your stuff stored in your room, before going to other places which you may have kept them such as the stock room. This is probably the most important part, since you may get frustrated with the time you will have to spend in looking for your crafting supplies. But keep your poise. Give yourself enough time to look for your things. You can spend an hour or so for this, but the point is that you have to gather everything material you have.

After you have gathered your things, throw away the things you don’t need. Dried up glues and watercolor, or tiny scraps are some of the things you may throw away. Keep only those things you can still use.

Then sort the things you have gathered into smaller groups. It would be easier for you to sort the items according to their type- meaning glue sticks, paste, and scissors can be kept in one jar, while decorative things like stickers and watercolors can be kept together. You can also keep things according to how you use them.
