Default I found a great way to store Nestabilities!!!

I had been keeping my Nestabilities in a binder with magnet pages. This system seemed to work pretty well except that the magnet pages were flexible and when I would turn the pages some of the dies would fall off.
I had a Creative Memories photo box that wasn't being used and had extra white plastic divider cards. These boxes are great. I use them to store my photos in. They come with 3 box inserts inside. I used my ATG gun to adhere magnet sheets to the plastic cards. As you can see, you can store 2 sets on each card of some of the sets. I put squares & rectangles (will hold long rectangles) in one of the box inserts and circles and ovals in another and labels in the third. There is still plenty of room for more.

Great idea!! Now that I know how to store them, I'll probably have to buy some.

I love this idea. I have one of these that I store clear stamps in. I've been storing nesties in a binder and didn't like that, and have been trying to decide what else to do with them. I'll have to get another one.

Default Nestabilitie storage

I use a different method. On the front of our phone books, is a magnetic square that goes on the refrigerator. Just advertisement things. Well I take those off and put in a cd case and put the nesties in there. They cling to the magnet and stay all nice. I put each set to a case.

I think I might do the same. There is a lot of room left in the box.
I think that I will be able to order more of the plastic divider cards from Creative Memories.
Thanks for the idea.

Thank you so much for sharing this idea. All the other ideas i've seen just take up too much space or won't work with my work space. This is perfect! Now to contact my rep.

What a great idea! I viewed CM web site to place an order discovering there are 3 different styles. Which box did you use? Power Sort Mini Box, Power Sort Box, or Power Sort Memorabilia Box?

I bought it at Michaele. It comes in sheets. I cut it down to 4 1/4 x 6 1/2. They also carry sheets that already have adhesive(peel and stick) on it.

What a great solution!

I borrowed an idea I saw somewhere here on SCS (sorry, I don't recall where anymore): I bought a roll of magnet. It's kind of like thick paper except that it's a sheet of magnet. It comes rolled up in a long box (the same shape as a saran wrap box). It has a sticky backing, which I removed. I slapped the sheet on the wall. (Hope I don't lose my damage deposit over that!) Anyhow, I can see my nesties (if I don't see things, I don't use them), they're easy to get at, and they don't take up precious desk, floor, or bookcase space!

A friend of mine found 6 by 6 inch or so magnetic plates at a dollar store - and she has one for every set of nesties - and keeps the whole lot in a plastic case!! I've yet to search for that dollar store - but that was a lot easier than what I do - keep all of the cases from the nesties in there packages - some great ideas here!!

To Lolita29: You would need to order the Power Sort Mini Box and the extra Power Sort Dividers, as the Box only has 6.

Yes, you do need to buy extra dividers. I checked on the Creative Memories website and they sell them in sets of 12 for 4.00.

I know CM makes an excellent product. I have used these for my photos and never thought they would help me organize and protect my die cuts too. WOW! I placed an order with CM for the power sort mini boxes + extra dividers. I am sooooooooooooooo excited and looking forward to being organized. I also love the tabs make it easy and visible to see the name of the die too. These boxes are very easy to pick up and take with me to crops and workshops too. I am sooooooooo excited. Thank you for sharing with all of us I am grateful. Lolita

I have 20 sets in this box. The box is only about 1/3 full. Some of the sets (ovals, classic & petite and rectangles) you can store 2 sets on each divider card.

The box measures 7 1/2" wide and 6 1/2" deep and 5 1/4" tall.
The divider cards are 7" wide and 4 1/2" tall (5" including the tab)

GREAT idea! I store my Nesties in CD cases with magnet strips and while it works, I don't care for it too much. Hmmmm . . . I think I have one of those boxes . . . just to locate it! Thanks for sharing such an awesome idea!

If you don't know a CM consultant, go to www.creativememories.com At top of screen click on "Find a consultant." Enter your zip code and a listing of names in your area will appear. Then just go to the web site of your choice, place an order, and it will be shipped to your address.

Someone awhile ago suggested storing nestabilities on magnetic sheets. She said she got them at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Sure enough...I got them and LOVE the way they store. They are magnetic vent covers, come 3 in a box and fit perfectly inside my cabinetry doors. I attached them to the door by double-side taping them to foam core (to add stiffness), then fastened them to my wood doors with 3M removable tapes (so I wouldn't damage the wood). They are just perfect and this method doesn't require additional containers...just open my door and there they are all for viewing and choosing. Just another method that works extremely well. Thanks to whoever originally suggested it...

I have mine in CD Cases, I put the magnetic sheet inside the CD case and hold it place with double sided tape. I also store almost all my stamps inside the CD cases, larger
and boarder stamps in VCR cases. I find that it saves a lot of space (that way I can buy more. HA! HA!)

What a fantastic idea. I have mine in the CD cases and everytime I open them one or more fall off the magnetic strips. I love your idea, will be contacting my CM friend real soon. Thanks for the idea.

I just recently began to collect sets of nesties. I like the CM box idea! I'll have to get one and some dividers.

Meanwhile, I've been storing the nesties in the plastic thing they come in. I take them out, get rid of the tape they were attached to. Then, I cut free magnet sheets into strips and use dbl stick tape on the strips to attach inside the package. Then I lay the nesties back in. By using stips instead of a solid piece, I leave little gaps that I can fit a fingernail in to "hook" up which ever nestie I need.

As for the free magnetic sheets...I grab the free calendars, football game schedules, and other assorted advertising magnetic sheets that companies and other businesses put out. They're usually large enough to get quite a few strips from, or you could use the entire thing if you like.

I thought storing the nesties on magnetic sheets in the CM mini storage box was a terrific idea. I rushed out to purchase the sheets. Now I'm having trouble getting them to stay on the sheet once I stand it up. Any special trick to this? I'd appreciate any hints. Thanks, Susan
