|Posted: 2/8/2013 11:41:54 PM|I got the 1st part of my nesting die order today. I ordered far too many dies and the Evolution after CHA. Well the 1st round of dies came in today, but no machine (silly back order) so I now need to store all these dies.
I'm not super excited to just put them on magnetic sheets, but if that's the best options i'll do that.
How do you store yours?

youtube will have lots of videos for you to pick from.
I have my spellbinders in a file system---where I cut the paper insert down and then just used adhesive back magnetic strip to keep them in place.

I use the Art Bin case with magnetic sheets designed for the metal dies. I just flip through the sheets till I find the die I want to use. This system is working for me.

I hope you find it helpful. This storage works REALLY well for me.

Memory box/poppystamp dies come in envelopes, so I just keep them in those and filed behind my spellbinders. I don't have any other brands.

Here is how I store my dies. It just shows the Nestabilities, but I store ALL of my wafer thin dies in this manner:

I use the Artbin with the magnetic sheets. It can get expensive but I get the sheets with a coupon. So far so good.

Initially I had all of my wafer thin dies in their original packaging and stored in a drawer. But as my collection started growing, I found that I wasn't using a lot of them because I simply forgot what I had and it started to be a PITA to flip through them all. So I bought adhesive backed magnetic sheets and adhered them to the inside of my closet doors. Now when I open the door I can see everything quickly and I've got quite a collection! This really works for me because if something is out of sight, it's totally out of mind. With this system I can easily see everything I've got, pull it off the sheet quickly and easily and put it back without any fuss whatsoever. No digging out binders, no making reference sheets, takes up space that was otherwise unused!

|Posted: 2/9/2013 10:21:25 AM|I don't have too many wafer or nesting dies, so I use the Artbin and magnetic pages as mentioned.
I got it and refills at the Black Friday Sale for SUPER cheap. Since they sell the magnetic sheets at Js, I can use a coupon if I ever get enough to use up the extra refills I already have.
P.S...I originally tried that whole "magnetic sheet" from the dollar store (I got a roll at Ms though). It was wwaayyy to flimsy for me
|Posted: 2/9/2013 12:00:21 PM|Ahhh i bet it is flimsy i think the video i watched she attached it to chipboard in an album tho so maybe better that wy.

I got my idea from Aryn Kelly here on 2 peas.
I use the CD envelopes and love how they work for me.
I did a video on how I did it...I also store my embossing folders this way.

I don't have that many but I use CD cases.

Although I store nesting dies in QK MagBooks, you could display the dies on inexpensive magnetic boards (available at Target, Walmart, Staples, etc.) covered in wrapping paper to coordinate with & double as decor for your room.

I don't have that many so I use the bags that TwoPeas uses for the miscellaneous smaller items. Then I put them in a photo box. Cheap, you can see your dies and it works.
|Posted: 2/9/2013 6:04:14 PM|I bought the roll of magnetic strip that has adhesive at Walmart. I have one strip for each die set. They just hang there, inside the cupboards in my scraproom. It doesn't take much at all. It's great and cheap.

I have the Artbin case with magnetic sheets. It is heavy, though, and I really don't have *that* many dies in it. I'd be interested in finding another - portable - storage solution as well.
