I haven't tried this but someone on this board posted a picture of rulers hanging from a closet bar using pant hangers. The bar was suspended betwern between two storage cabinets. I'm currently hanging mine on the sides of an old desk converted into a cutting table using Command hooks. But I think I like the bar and pant hanger method better.

I have pegboard hooks and hang rulers, thread and rotary cutters on them. The small rulers and templates that have holes in them go on binder rings then they get hung. Instead of one large piece of pegboard, I have several smaller ones tucked into dead space around the room. I also have shelves in the higher part of the pegboard.

Some of mine are on a wall pegboard. The ones I use the most are in tote bags and organizers.

I took 2 decorative plant hangers that had some curly-Q designs and placed a curtain rod between the 2 hangers. I used basic shower hooks to put the stencils on. I find the basic shower hooks easy to open and close. There is enough room to slide the stencils back and forth to see what i have. The bigger stencils are on a peg board that is stored behind a door.

I use tension rods and shower curtain clips to hang my rulers on a bookcase .

I use command hooks that I place at the top just under the edge of my cutting table to hang mine. Easy to grab and always where I can find them.
