How to store your metal die-cuts easily.

Posted on 04 Jun 2014

I am always looking for great ways to organize my scrapbooking stash. Now as a crafter and scrapbooker things need to be accessible, easy to reach, functional and still beautiful. So came the problem of my ever increasing “die” collection. First i had them in plastic tubs in their packaging, then i removed them from their packaging which removed the bulk and gave me more space but having them stacked on top of each other just wasn’t the perfect solution. But then it dawned on me. With some of the companies supplying dies with a magnetic sheet this was a great solution. But posed another issue – I had to go out and buy lots of empty CD storage cases to put dies into on a magnetic sheet, then the CD cases would take up too much space and it wasn’t pretty. In came my next solution…

put it in and found these amazingly beautiful files at Typo that matched my colour scheme.

So I placed my dies on the magnetic sheets according to designs, labelled the folders
and had the perfect solution. They are compact and gorgeous.

solution to many of my storage problems.

Can you see where i am going with this one…now to empty the filing cabinet!
