Default Wow Spellbinders will have new packaging ?

I just read in a newsletter that with the new releases Spellbinders will have new "friendly " packaging . It is supposed to be envelope style so we can store them in it .

Does that mean I can put the hack saw and wire cutters back into the garage!!

I am thrilled!
I hope they also found some new double sided tape . The dies are light weight . They don't need an adhesive tape that is strong enough to hold a fender on a car . LOL

Here is the newsletter entry
Our newest releases will be packaged in an envelope-style format. This package friendly design will have a project inspiration on the front, will make it easier to open your purchases and will give you more options to store them in the new packaging. Look for this change starting from our 2014 Winter CHA releases.

LOLLLLLLLLLL @ your post!!! I have wondered so many times why Spellbinders dies HAD to be hermetically sealed. And yes, that 'tape of death'......I always approached a new pack of Spellbinders dies with a sense of trepidation hahahaha

What GREAT news this is about more friendly packaging WOOHOO. Thanks for sharing, Barb

That sounds fantastic and then I can store the dies in the envelopes just like my Memory Box dies. You are right about the sticky stuff, and the harder I try and get it off, the more it seems to spread - uggh, I will be SO HAPPY to not have it anymore - YAY!

Bwahaha...Barbara...you're a hoot. I saw the new packaging in person at CHA and I knew the Spellbinder fans would be thrilled at this improvement.

I'm not a big fan of the blister packaging that so many companies use...but in defense of the crazy-awful-stuff-to-get-open plastic...I do use that left over stuff in my crafting when I need firm clear die cuts, or shapes. Whatever will I do now? LOL

I was another who was glad to read this - I too, have been a victim of cutting myself on the plastic.

rofl @the OP! I agree, I've always been positive I was going to bend my dies, and wondered why I couldn't get tape that strong for my cards!

On some of the early Spellbinders, the tape took the finish off the die!

I have reused some of the clear packaging as long as it wasn't too scratched up.

Like the spellbinder dies but sometimes it is a chore of determination to get them off the cardboard and out of the heat sealed plastic without damaging them.

User friendly packaging is welcomed news.

I can just see it!
After we get the new envelope packaging and see if it is an efficient storage idea we may be spending hours making envelopes for all of our other Spellbinder dies

I used to keep a used-up gift card handy to slide between the die and the tape to separate them gently. I was afraid I'd break one in half otherwise

Maybe they will give us the opportunity to buy extra packets for our old dies!

I hated the awful tape they used - so unnecessarily strong!! I put all my Spellbinder dies on cut-to-size magnetic sheets (vent covers from Ace Hardware or Home Depot).

Well...about flippin' time! Those sealed packages and that 'stronger than dirt' tape was a hazard to your health! I don't know how many times I have almost lost a fingernail or an eye trying to get those dies off the backing! LOL Halleluiah!!!!!

Well if they diversify and start selling tape they will make a killing as we all know it is good.

Maybe they should sell the double sided tape they use
Nothing would ever come off a card or scrapbook page

I think they are going to be packaged like memory box and mft now. Was a surprise but ok with me. I do not cut the spellbinders packages i simply part the top between the tabs and pull thecwhole page out and put back the same way. It works for me and i hated cutting the packages a couple years back.
Blessings.
