Bulletin Board Border Trim Storage Ideas for Teachers
The most affordable idea for how to store bulletin board border trims is to hang them up by one end using binder clips. The other ideas would require storing your border trims in a storage bin, pocket chart, or round container. See more details of these ideas below.
Bulletin Board Border Trim Vertical Storage
Bulletin board borders can be hung vertically from closet hangers or over the door storage racks. Add several binder clips to the horizontal bar of the hanger and hang all border trims the same color pattern on each binder clip.
Bulletin Board Border Trim Horizontal Storage
The best way to store bulletin board border trims horizontally is in a clear-view storage bag or bin.
This is a bulletin board border trim storage bin. This 2′ long plastic storage bin has a closing lid and all of the sides are see-through for you to see your border trims. You would have to first neatly stack your borders trims together, then gently fold the group in half (gently without making a crease). Then place the folded group in the storage container.
You can also store your bulletin board border trims in a storage pocket chart made specifically for border trims. Carson Dellosa makes this one with five clear pockets for the borders.
How to Store Bulletin Board Border Trims in Containers
If you prefer to keep your border trims rolled up, never use tape or rubberbands to secure them because they can cause permanent damage. To secure you border trims rolls, you can use large binder clips. Click on any of the container pictures below to see more details.
Store your border trims by rolling them up on themselves like a roll of ribbon and store them in round clear containers with lids. You can even use empty CD containers with the spindle at the center. Basically, any clear container that is stackable, would work well. Try to get ones with clear lids too so that you can see the patterns of the border trims in it without having to open it. I found some clear round container types that you can try. I tried to get ones with vertical cylindrical sides.
