Cardstock Organization



These are the new Jetmax cubes for organizing your scrapbook paper.  They are designed to house your 12" x 12" cardstock or patterned papers in 12" x 12" hanging file folders.  The 12" x 12" hanging file folders are quite expensive (6 for approx. $10 if I remember correctly).  Each cube comes with 6 of them which will get you started.  I decided that I really needed a permanent home for my 8 1/2" x 11" Stampin' Up! cardstock, but 11" wide hanging folders are too small.  I asked my husband to drill 4 new holes in the sides and make the bars slightly lower to fit my colour tabs.  If you use these cubes for 12" x 12", the tabs do not fit as those hanging folders fit just perfectly snug in the cubes.  I highly recommend these cubes.

These are great, I'd bought the cubes like this from Oriental Trader, and the bars didn't stay in the holes, AND the file folders that came with them were not wide enough to hang on them. I know they weren't JetMax, so I am excited to know I could get some new ones if I wanted too.

I hope Michaels carries them soon, as the 40% off would help with the price of these! :) Sandy

TFL everyone! I bought these cubes at Michael's in Canada. I first saw them when I was in FL at the beginning of the year and yes the 40% off coupons really help!

Since you are an avid stamper, do 2 drawers really fit all of your paper? Or just your patterned paper (solid colors elsewhere?) I am asking because I am sure I have less paper, but it still seems like a lot! :) Thanks for your idea!

I have these cubes that came w/ 4 12 x 12 white folders...I can't find any anywhere that fit them...where did you get them? They aren't white like the ones that came w/ my cubes. Thanks so much!

Hi Amy - these are 8.5" x 11" hanging folders from any office supply store. The best place to get the white 12" x 12" ones you are looking for is online or have your LSS order them for you, but be prepared for the sticker shock! they can be quite expensive. Hope that helps.

I use only 12x12 paper do u have any suggestions. Right now I have them in 12x12folders and labeled.

does the cube come with the rack that holds the folders. Or do you have to buy racks and folders to fit the 12x12 paper.
Thanks

Hello! This is my first time to your web site. I just bought the jetmax for my 12x12 card stock. Where did you find extra files. Thank you
