Storage for Nestible Dies, Etc.

Hi, sorry it took me a while to get this posted.  I’m a little behind on everything right now.  This is the storage box I mentioned in my last post and as my tip to Top Tip Tuesday.  I found this fantastic box at Staples for the closeout price of $5.00.  I couldn’t pass it by, especially since I was looking for something similar.  But everything I found let small pieces slip through the bottom and was ugly. (Can’t have ugly now, can we?  LOL)

I’ve taken a few shots of the inside also.  I plan to use labels to show what is in each pocket.  I also went back and bought a second one, so I have one box for my Spellbinders and one my designer ones, like those from Cheery Lynn Designs, etc.

The boxes have 19 pockets, which seems like plenty, but it’s still not large enough to hold all that I have.  A few years ago, I found these magnetic sheets after I saw a tip from Diane of Capadia Designs. These are large enough to store an entire set on one sheet, and then I’m able to place several sets in one pocket.  So I’m placing oval ones together, and so forth.

As I’m a visual person, I hope that this post with the pictures will help others that also need a visual reference and a way to store your dies.

Hugs,
