I have received several emails from people asking how I store my Spellbinders dies. I know some people keep them in the containers they are sold in, others have filing systems and some keep them in various containers. I wanted to find a way for storing them so at a quick glance I could pick out the one I wanted. I also wanted to see an example of what the die cuts looked like once they were cut, embossed and stenciled. I decided to use CD cases to store the dies. Here is what I have come up with that works wonderfully for me.I get a pack of CD's from Walmart and take the guts out (the part that holds the CD), they snap out very easy. Then I add magnets with an adhesive backing which hold the dies in place. Like I said I also wanted to see the die cut so this is what I did for the front of the CD case.I cut a piece of black CS to fit on the inside of the case and then once I had all of the pieces cut, embossed and stenciled I glued them down to the black CS. I also added labels with the name and number of the dies. Another helpful thing I added to the label was MSS=Matching Stamp Set for the dies that have coordinating stamp sets.
I know this can take a little time to do but it is well worth it! This might also be helpful if you decide to store your dies the same way. First cut and emboss everything leaving the CS inside the die like this--->Once you have everything cut then do your inking. This will save you so much time!!Here is how I store the CD cases. These container will hold 25 CS's very nicely and you can stack them.I hope this is helpful and has maybe given you some ideas for storing your Spellbinders dies. Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful Spring day and I hope you have some sunshine in your part of the world.
