construction paper question

I have been trying to figure out a better way to store my construction paper at school, so I thought what better place to go ask for help than PT?

Our construction paper packages are the long packages. Any ideas?

This works well for regular paper length... Maybe you could fold them before putting them in?

Scroll down on the blog - it's #3 on her list.

Thanks SnackNapRead, but I can't get that opened.... Is there another way I can view it?

I don't think folding would be an option because it would take to much time.

A few years ago I purchased one similar to those in 1956BD's link. I got mine from the School Specialty catalog (although I've seen them a lot of places). I LOVE mine - in fact, several of my colleagues bought it too after seeing mine.

I would just fold the entire stack of one color over loosely. That way it wouldn't have a horrible crease. I use the file storage for regular sheets and then I also happen to have a long slotted box like the previous post's link.

Thanks, SnackNapRead!!

Give me your thoughts about this. I'm not at school so I can't give this a try, but will tomorrow.

What if..... I put it in lengthwise? I would need a way to keep it standing instead of slumping down, but wouldn't have to worry about folding or the space that would take up. What do you think? Any ideas for holding it up straight....Maybe one of those flat bookends?

I really like the file cabinet idea because it wouldn't take up any more shelf space. My room is really tiny!!

I file mine by color in hanging folders in my file cabinet. I found the idea on pinterest and LOVE it. It works so well and I don't have to rummage through the closet to find it...when I need it I just open the drawer and there it is.

What about using cardboard cut to the size of the long paper? It could be the backing and maybe even use a binder clip or large paper clip to hold the long construction paper to the cardboard?

I have a couple file folder sorter things and put the colors in sideways standing up.
Kind of like this

I'd like to see if the file cabinet hanging folders would work. Are they long enough for the full sheets of construction paper?

I won't be able to use the hanging file folders because of having the long full size sheets. I'm going to try putting them in sideways. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Thanks everyone! I knew I could count on my PT friends!

a white wire shelf. I put it on top of 2 file cabinets that I push together. There are 4-6 shelves, I can stack long paper on them. I got it several years ago from Classroom Direct or something. We bought the cardboard paper sorters for our grade level paper, but they fell apart from the weight of the paper. If I find a picture I will post it, but try searching for wire construction paper shelf. Hope that helps

I use one of those things that separates lids, plates, or bakeware. I put it in my cabinet and put the different colors of paper in the sections. I think I have two side by side. They work great. You can usually find them at Target or Walmart.

I'm attaching a picture of what I mean.

I put my construction paper upright in a plastic container like this. I used regular file folders to separate the colors instead of hanging ones. You can get one from Wal-Mart. It sits nicely anywhere.
