I use some of the plastic packaging to make "patterns" of all my Nesties. When I cut out a shape/size for the first time, I cut out another on a scrap piece of paper. Then I have a plastic piece designated and labeled for that shape (i.e. Classic Scalloped Ovals) and I draw around the shape with a permanent marker (I find it easier to use the mortise shape) in its place on plastic so the shapes are concentric and label it L-#2 or S-#5 or whatever and keep them all in a plastic baggie. Then when I need to decide on what size die to use I can place the plastic over the card or stamp to see which fits best. This is not my idea. Creative Memories provides the plastic "pattern" with their circle and oval cutting system.
