I like to collect Disney pins while visiting the parks. I’m not an avid collector but I do like to find pins that represent someone or something special that we might be celebrating during that particular visit. My kids also like taking pins they no longer enjoy and trading with cast members for a new pin. Through the years, we’ve collected quite a bunch and after storing them in a box, I ran across the idea to use Disney VHS clamshell storage for pins a few different times online and thought I put together a post for others who might be looking for a fun storage solution!
Not only does this pin storage solution keep your pins organized and accessible, it also utilizes another Disney collection you might have laying around your house! Disney VHS tapes!! I, unfortunately, tossed my tapes long ago but found these at my local thrift store for 50 cents each!
To transform these clamshells into storage, you’ll need:
- Disney VHS tape(s)
- cork board (I used these placemats from Ikea which I can’t find there anymore but you could also buy this.)
- sharpie marker
- Any pins you want to organize (or buy some here)
Use the VHS tape as a template to trace on your cork board with your marker. Once you’ve traced, cut them out with scissors.
I used two cork board pieces in each clamshell case to make sure my pin didn’t go through the back of case.
The cork board fit nice and snug in the clamshell and I was able to add my pins!
I placed my Mickey pins in my “Fantasia” VHS clamshell. I also placed my Goofy pins in my “A Goofy Movie” clamshell. You can organize your pins however you’d like!
I love how these look on my shelves and know they’ll be a conversation piece! The fact that they double as storage for my pins is a bonus!!
If you collect pins (a little or a lot), consider this as a storage idea! Using Disney VHS clamshell storage for pins is whimsical AND useful!
