Who has started to organize?! I am so inspired by the rest of the MFT Stamps team and I cannot wait to implement some of the fantastic organization ideas into my craft room! Today we talk about everyone's favorite crafty tools-die templates!
I keep mine stored in a refrigerator storage bin from Amazon. I have also found these at my local home store and kitchen supply store.
And to keep them organized in that bin, I again use my Clear Pocket Storage holders, both the large and the small. Some of you have asked, and honestly, I am not too picky about them hanging out of the top. It doesn't bother me, as long as I can find the set of dies when I need them.
I don't have labels on my storage bags, but my Die-namics are sorted out like this:
Favorites (ones I use constantly)
Nature (flowers, leaves, etc)
Blueprints, Tag Builder Blueprints
Letters and Numbers
I should mention that these are my Die-namics that stand alone. The Die-namics that coordinate with stamp sets, I store in the Clear Storage Pockets with the stamps.
For the Die-namics that do not come with a magnetic backing, I use magnetic vent cover that I purchase at our local hardware store chain. It is located in the plumbing and heating section of the store,
The vent cover is thin and very easy to cut with scissors. In fact, my paper trimmer cuts it easily too. I trim the vent cover to size, depending on the size of the set of Die-namics. You could make the pieces of vent cover the size of the pockets, but I like to conserve and use the exact amount I need. Because, hey, then there is more money to buy pretty paper crafting supplies!
For those Die-namics that are just too large for pockets and bins, I use a book that I made for just such a reason.
I trimmed chipboard to 8x8 inches and bound it together with my Bind It All. Then I adhered the magnetic vent cover to the front of each chipboard page. They stay organized and in place. This idea would actually work for any of your Die-namics!
Oh, and the chipboard I got from my friend, who happened to own the local scrapbooking store. She would get tons of it every time she ordered paper.
Wahoo! More chances for fantastic prizes! Remember to enter, you must visit the MFT Blog
