Does anyone have a good way to store bulletin board borders?
I just keep them in a border box, but you could:
wrap them around empty wrapping paper tubes
keep the plastic they come in and hand the original bag on dowels in your closet
get a border pocket chart
use metal clips to clip them together then hang the clips from a wall hook
I roll mine up and store them in a large coffee can. The really big cans will hold 5 or 6 borders, or possibly more depending on how you roll them. No wrinkles and they stack easy. You can even stick a small piece of each border on the outside of the can so you can see which ones are in which can (if you're organized...unlike me!)
I use a box like this:
My co-worker rolls her and puts a rubber band around them. Those she stores in a small plastic tote.
I roll mine & put a rubber band around them. I put them in a box together in a big jumble (it's not the most organized system in the world.. but it works)
I'd love to get one of those border boxes, but I've never invested in one.
We have these really neat drawers at our school that are extra wide and deep. We can keep bulletin board borders, big books, etc. in them. But, I've seen the sentence-strrip storage boxes too and I think they would work great also.
