I place one strip down on the middle of the sheet and trim the other one in half, then stick it down beside the first strip to make a cross shape. I find this fits almost all of my nesties sets. I had to add some extra magnetic strips for my SU Labels framelits, but that's no problem. I stamp a label shape onto the sheets so I can write down the name and number of each set. So far I've been able to cram 15 sets into one binder. I really like how accessible the sets are, and I can see at a glance which shapes are going to work with whatever image I'm trying to frame. I'll try to take a photo of it and post it in a bit!
