Storing My Vinyl

I know, I know... all my posts lately are about storing things and organizing things.  I agree, it's getting ridiculous.  But, my husband has started to twitch every time I bring in another crafting whosit into this house.  So I've been trying to find places for all my stuff.  'Cause I like my stuff.

I collected a billion Pringles cans, which didn't take too long because Pringles are awesome-sauce.  I cut the little ring at the top off and started to work.

I also cleaned out the insides of the Pringles can because I didn't want my vinyl to be crumb-y.  Next, I used double-sided tape to put some pretty paper on each one and I stacked them together. I did glue them as well, but added a ribbon to tie them together too because I like extra pretty on my Pringles cans.

And after several minutes of diligent work, I had vinyl storage.  I am so good at projects that take less than an hour.

This system is way better than the one I had before: putting vinyl wherever I was and having to look for it all over.  Progress.

  1. Brilliant! Now I just need to get a can of pringles and eat them!

    1. I featured this on my blog today! You can check it and grab a Featured button here:

  2. Very clever idea and they look great too

  3. I'm good at admiring projects. :-) Great idea!

  4. I'm convinced now that we were either best friends or twins in a past life...this Is so cute! I was thinking of getting some plastic wrap or whatever with a slide cutter if I could find one. My bf just wonders how it all ends up in the house I think. I like to sneak mine in under the cover of nightfall.

    Oh, and I have that same scrapbook paper, hehe!

  5. Very simple but ever so clever!! See we don't have to give up stuffs just find ways to organize them:)

    Just dropping in from Live Laugh Rowe to meet you and follow you:) (via GFC and Linky)

  6. What a great idea. I have seen pringles cans used for so many things.

    Stopping by from the linkup.

  7. Oh, I wish I could have helped you eat some of those pringles :)

    This is a brilliant reuse project. You really are on an organizational kick, aren't you?

  8. Never seen such pretty pringles cans ;)

  9. I love your organizing technique. Who would have ever thought Pringle cans could be so pretty? My husband can easily be described as a Pringles addict. If I buy them, they're gone in a day. Now to think of something to store in them after he's done...I don't have vinyl but I want pretty Pringles cans! LOL

    Thanks so much for linking this on my Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop. Guess what? The featured posts for next week's hop are all about organizing and YOURS will be one of them. Be sure to stop by and tell your friends, too.

    Many blessings, Sinea from Ducks ‘n a Row

  10. Well I for one never get tired of organization posts, I need all the ideas I can get.
    And that's an awesome idea for storage. My husband makes fun of me for saving boxes, now he will think I'm super crazy when I start saving his pringle cans!

    Thanks for stopping by and following Snack Cups and Smiles, I'm returning the follow.
    Have a lovely weekend!
    With Smiles,

  11. I've looked at pringles cans before and wondered what to do with them... now I know! Thanks for the idea!

  12. Thanks so much for linking up to Your Whims Wednesday, i featured this on my blog today! Come stop by and grab a featured button :)

  13. I'm in Australia and I was a might bit confused initially cause vinyl to us is either floor covering (linoleum) or records neither of which would fit in a Pringles can. Had to have a look and then realised that we call it contact. Makes much more sense. :) They look really pretty

  14. Great idea, wish I'd seen it earlier, kept some pringles cans for ages and then had a clear out and threw them out. I really wish I hadn't!!!


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
