Just a bit of organization....

Good morning! Earlier this week I received a package which I had been waiting for over 2 months.... I had previously bought the one and only Quickutz Magnetic Storage Book at Hobby Lobby to store my Spellbinder's Nestability dies in. I loved it so I ordered 10 more! I have been doing a lot of organizing of my craft items lately and was really exited to get more of these binders. This photo shows my shelf "before"; my Spellbinder's dies are in the 2 plastic boxes.

This photo shows how messy the inside of the boxes can get. The dies get loose and aren't readily available when I want to use them. I had tried the CD cases with magnetic strips, but the magnetic strip was always coming loose; when I would open the box, the dies weren't where they were supposed to be.

Here's a photo of the binder.

Here's a photo of the binder filled with the Spellbinder's dies. Depending on the size of the dies, I was usually able to get between 4-8 sets in one binder.

This photo shows the full binders on my shelf. Note the small amount of space it takes to store the dies! I was able to put additional items on the shelf. The best part is that when I open the binders, the dies are where they are supposed to be!
Thanks for stopping by today! I am hoping to find some time this afternoon to get crafty.... How about you?

That is so cool, those nesties are hard to store, this looks ideal. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice! I have one binder, that I've been using to store my PTI/MFT dies in. Alas I'm still using the less-than-satisfactory magnetic strip in CD cases for my Nesties!

Hi Angela, Awesome storage idea and great post. I am like Amy, still using the old magnetic strip inside a CD Case storage system. But I get frustrated as well when the dies move around and I cannot figure out which two I want to use. Plus I cannot fit the longer ones in the CD. Plus now I have all the PTI Dies thrown in a plastic box :( I might go with this solution as well.

Looks great, Angela! I love those Sterilite shoe boxes and your binder seems like an amazing tool. Want to come help me sort out my disaster area ;) ??
