Organizing your Bulletin Board Borders


Tired of your borders being ruined because you shove them in a cabinet? Tired of digging for your borders under shelves? Try this simple trick to organize your borders in your classroom!
Bulletin board borders can be frustrating to store and organize! I have a quick tip for you how you easily organize them! I know how much of a mess than can get to be and many of us do not have space in a large drawer to keep them. You will find this tip to be so quick and easy... it is something you can do as soon as you get back into your classroom!

To start, if you have any borders that come in nice packaging (like the ones below) simply open them along the top edge to take out/put in borders. This will keep your borders more clean than if you take them all out of their plastic.

If your borders are not in nice packaging, no big deal! You can still organize them nicely.

Lay all of your borders down (have them facing the same direction). Use a binder clip to group the borders by color. Flip the top silver clip down and leave the other silver part up. This is what you will use to hold them up.

Once you have all of your borders ready, place them on a hook where they are out of the way. I have a large shelf in the back of my classroom and underneath is this board. I placed hooks spaced apart enough to hang multiple borders. You could also use command hooks!

  1. This would be a great space-saver for me! My borders are currently in a big box that takes up too much space. Using your system, I could hang them in the back of the cupboard and save some space. Great idea! Thanks for sharing, Cassie!

  4. Awesome idea! Much better than a big tub where they always get bent and scuffed!

  5. What a great idea! I use hooks but these little cuties are self contained and ready to go on a hook and such a great space saver!

  7. This is such a great idea. I usually keep my borders in a borders box, but it's so jam packed that the box is starting to come apart. I think I will have to try your idea. Thanks for sharing :)

  8. Definitely a bright idea! I normally stick mine in a circle Rubbermaid container, but then they are bent and I have to set them out flat to straighten them.

  11. That's great! I use keep mine rolled which doesn't take up a lot of room but leaves them curled!
