Default Attaching Vent Covers to Chipboard?

I have many of my dies on chipboard covered with those self-stick magnetic sheets. The magnetic sheets are okay, but not great, stuff slides off. I am thinking of redo-ing everything using vent covers because I am thinking they are stonger magnetically. But how would I best attach them to chipboard? Glue? What kind of glue? Something else?

And are they stronger than the peel and stick sheets I get from Oriental Trading?

This is the tape that I attached my vent covers to the laminated sheets I use. (I put the die picture on one side of a piece of cardstock and laminate it, then tape on the magnet)

Elmer's Permanent Double Sided Tape | Double-Sided Tape

It STICKS! I used three strips of tape going across the magnet, top, middle, bottom. More isn't really needed.

And the magnetic vent covers do a really good job of holding the dies. As long as the whole thing is stiff (not bendy) they will stay put. My laminated cardstock with the magnets attached were very stiff.

PS...I looked up the OTC magnetic sheets, also available on Amazon, and Amazon had reviews. Looks like those are much thinner and much more flexible, and barely magnetic. Vent covers are much thicker (about 1/16 inch), much stiffer, and much more magnetic. I think you'll be pleased with them.

I use Sook wang or score tape. The red super sticky tape works good too;

I haven't used it for the application you are describing, but E6000 has a spray adhesive (found it a Wal-mart) that I have used very successfully for adhering paper to metal to make little note boards out of step flashing. I think it would work well for the vent covers.

Oh, thank you all!

Now I am going to have to do this. I am sick of my dies sliding around. I've got my panels in PPs, but it's still annoying and every so often a small one towards the edge of the panel slides out and escapes completely. And gets lost.

Evidently I'm in the minority because I tried the vent covers and didn't like them. They added too much bulk to my storage system, and didn't hold all that well for me. I put my dies in plastic CD storage sleeves, and the larger ones in the Tim Holtz-type storage pockets from Hobby Lobby. Everything is stored upright so I can just flip through it.

Food for thought.

I really just want to duplicate exactly what I already have, but with stronger magnetic sheets. Like when you buy dies, they sometimes come on a small, non-rigid but very magnetic sheet? I always wonder what that is.

The vent covers are only 8 inches wide. And my panels are 8.5X11. But I think I can work with them.

Those self adhesive sheets from Oriental Trader are weak.

I am going to think about all of this over the weekend while I am hopefully MAKING SOMETHING with my stuff instead of 1)buying more stuff or 2)organizing my stuff.

That's exactly where I'm at, too!

Also, it just occurred to me to wonder if you could paint chipboard with magnetic paint and that would work...

It depends on the manufacturer, but magnetic paint is relatively weak since it doesn't contain much iron dust. Multiple coats can increase strength - I vaguely remember reading that six coats doubled strength for one brand. (I specified paint in when consulting.)

Since most dies don't weigh much (with the exception of mostly solid background dies), it might work. Some is difficult to apply. If the time/effort/$$ is worth testing depends on the person I guess.

I use magnetic sheets only for sets with lots of tiny dies or nested dies a la JM. Sheets are attached to heavy CS with 1/2" or 5/8" ScorTape and it works well. Dies are in heavy pockets, though, so a different system.

I have a separate system for my Nesties, because the sets are so heavy. Half sheets, actually small magnetic panels from Crafters Companion (which are pretty rigid, the full size ones are not) in PPs that I cut in half.

What I want to redo is all the other stuff. Which is on those chipboard sheets covered with self-stick magnetic stuff. I have a lot of long border dies, so the pocket idea really wouldn't work for me. I'd have to keep those dies separate, which I guess I could do.

I am overthinking.

I do that well. PhD.

I have some long dies; they stick out over the square pockets. The pockets and bin don't care. But we all have our different no-way-on-earths that must be respected.

Hello all, first post, long time lurker.

I bought magnetic sheets on amazon from Marietta Magnetic mills, I think in GA. They come already sized for the Avery Elle knock-off pockets, also from amazon. 5 x 7. They are sturdy as all get out. In fact, too sturdy, be sure to get just the 20-25 mill, anything higher - 30 - is way too heavy. No need for cardstock unless you want it. 25 sheets for $15, which works out to about .60 a sheet. Oriental Trading mag sheets are hokum compared to real magnetic sheets.

I use these too. Much better than the Oriental Trading ones which I used previously. The ones I bought are adhesive on one side and I stick them to chipboard so they are nice and sturdy. I bought the 8 x 10 version here.

Default I used to buy the 8 x 10 sheets too, but had to cut them down.

It just seemed like waste cutting the sheets, and I have no room to store dies on 8 x 10 sheets. I now have a box with 1/2" to 3" strips. I figure someday we'll need them.

Who wouldn't want Jennifer McGuire's craft room/studio. (drooling) I have a very small bedroom with limited wall space. It wasn't something I noticed when house hunting, but the room has a really strange layout, which cuts down on storage and elbow room.


One day...

These are also the ones I use. I store mine with stamp sets in plastic sleeves - like Avery Elle, and adhere them to the back of the card the stamps are on. Keeps everything together nice and neat. The adhesive is firm, I can use my TH small guillotine to cut them to size, and I'm good to go. Absolutely love them.

These Marietta Mills sheets look great. I would want the 8 X 10's. But I stand my panels up in a bin. My current bin fits 8.5X12 inch panels perfectly (landscape orientation). How do any of you store them?

I use the vent covers taped to a piece of lightweight cardboard.......like the backing piece on Stampin' Up DSP. I use some in Tim Holtz envelopes and some in small binders inside page protectors......I also use two pieces of magnet sheets per piece of cardboard when needed. So far it's all working well.

I store mine standing up in refrigerator bins, so I don't think you will have a problem storing yours the way you have been. HTH!

I cut the 8 x 10 sheets into quarters and store each die set separately (so I can keep track of the name of the die and who makes it). Then I store each one in these CD sleeves.

I always buy the 4x6 self-adhesive sheets from Magnet Valley that I attach to chipboard or mat board. Every now and then, a die won't stick to the magnet and it makes me wonder about the variation of the metal in some dies and not the strength of the magnet. I just thought that dies were iron and would be magnetic but after a little research, I found that magnetic materials are a mix of products so it makes me wonder if some of the non-sticking dies are made of less magnetic materials and no matter what I do they are not going to stick.

OK I know kind of weird thoughts ....I need to get a life.

Sorry to high jack topic, but do the knock off pockets havevacsize that fits 6x6 stencils and background stamps, and larger dies that are not so tall as the large Avery Elle. No matter how I organize, there is never a size for the next thing I buy. Ugh!,

I store all my dies in the CD cases, using the magnetic vent covers to hold the dies. And I sure the Scotch double sided tape to hold the magnetic vent cover to the CD case, and insert the cut photo from the die packaging in the front of the CD case. Works perfectly for me.

I too use magnetic vent covers from Lowe's (cut each sheet into thirds, then trim a little to fit). Put them in CD cases which have a small tab that you can slide the vent cover under (no tape or glue needed to hold them in) , use the product name info. glued (with glue dots) on the inside front cover of the CD case. File them standing up in baskets on my shelf. Easy and quick to find the one I want to use and useful to bring the whole basket to my work area.
