You really enjoy collecting "things" to use as collage on your cards - how should you store them? Remember that some collage items can deteriorate. It is best to store like things together and unlike things apart.
You can get ziplock bags from the grocery store to store your supplies in. These are great because they are archivally safe for storage. Try to squeeze as much air out before sealing to help prevent deterioration.
For items like leaves, which may get crushed, buy the small sandwich sized plastic containers from the supermarket.
