Arts and crafts supply stores Michael's and Hobby Lobby as well as online retailers such as Amazon.com and Scrapbook.com sell 12-by-12-inch scrapbooking paper organizers. Each of these outlets sells a variety of styles and sizes of organizers, including some that are portable and others that serve as more permanent storage units.
The stock carried by Michael's and Hobby Lobby is quite similar. Both sell paper-only organizers and tower-shaped multifunction organizers that have spaces designed to hold paper, scissors, ribbon, stickers and other scrapbooking supplies. The advantage of buying organizers at these brick-and-mortar stores is that you can see and examine the items before making a purchase.
Internet-based retailers also offer a wide range of paper organizers. These websites typically offer very competitive pricing and may have wider ranges of stock available compared to their offline competitors.
Some of the portable paper organizers available resemble accordion files, briefcases, file boxes, zippered notebooks and three-ring binders with clear pocket-style inserts. Many of the more permanent organizers are styled like filing cabinets or as attractive, shallow lidded boxes. Many of the boxes available are covered with fabric and come in a variety of colors and patterns. Metal boxes in this same style are also available.
