Default Organizing my nesties

I most likely am posting to the wrong area but here goes anyway. I am looking once again to organize my craft room but am unsure of the best way to store my nesties. What is everyone else doing? I have tried the jewel cases, don't like that. I kept them in the original packages until some have started to come apart. Hoping for some new suggestions.

I kept mine on their original cards. Where the double-sided tape was, I put magnetic tape purchased from Walmart and stored them 'hotdog' length in a plastic bin I picked up that was the perfect side. I have several sets in the basket...it is heavy with the nesties and magnetic tape but it is perfect for what I have.

I put nesties and any of those wafer thin dies on magnetic sheets and have them in a lunch pail tin.

Default magnetic storage

I have my scrapbook supplies in an cabinet. For my nesties, I bought rolls of sheet magnetic material. I attached it to the inside of the doors and my nesties stick to it! I've even slammed the cabinet door and they didn't come off!! Best idea I've had about any of my storage of goodies!!!

I store mine also on magnetic sheets which is attached to chip board. I the sort them by style, ie squares, circles, snowflakes, labels, etc. I have them in a heavy leather photo/dvd box that has a lid. I've done the cd cases and I found this way easier to store and access. Also I just have to put a lid on it and I can take the to retreats. But one thing I can't get over is how heavy it is due to the magnet sheets. I have a lot though

I put mine on magnetic sheets and have them in a binder. For me it
works out great. I like those smaller binders.

I use magnetic vent covers cut into thirds. I got my vent covers at Lowes. HTH

I have one set of Grand dies - I keep with my cutting mats.

Mine are organized side on in a CD/DVD box. And yes it IS heavy but I love it.

I bought my magnetic vent covers at Home Depot. Here's a post on my blog about how I use them:

Hi Mel! I'm currently using binders but not sure if I'm liking that or not! The binders are big & seem to take up a lot of room. The leather boxes that you have look nice & also sturdy. Also like that it has a lid. Where did you purchase those & also where did you get the chipboard? Did you have to cut down the chipboard as well?

Thanks so much for you help!

I'm not Mel, but I bought my chipboard off EBay. This is similar to what I bought:

100 Qty. 8 1/2 x 11"x .022 White Chipboard Craft Sheets Acid Free | eBay

I bought my magnet sheets at Home Depot. They were vent covers.

Default metal die storage

I wish I had read here long ago! I came up with the idea of using magnetic vent covers glue to chipboard all on my own.... And I thought I was so original! LOL. I store mine in a basket that I got from Hobby Lobby for 1.00 - it's like a magazine holder, but shorter.... perfect for my dies and my mats.

I do have one die that bent a bit so it doesn't stick well anymore. any ideas for flattening it out? I have tried bending the other way, but am afraid to work the metal too much.

No suggestion for flattening out the die but perhaps you could use smaller bits of the magnetic vent covers (like a shim) so that it will "meet" the die where the bend makes it raised.

HTH and ...

Happy Crafting!

Joann's online store carries chipboard. They have different weights and I was able to get them when they were on sale and I had a free shipping code.

Hi Brenda! Thank-you for the tip. What size do you think? 8-1/2 X 11 is what I was thinking!

I bought the 12 X 12 because I was using it for another project. I just happened to have left overs, so I used them for my die storage. I think the 8.5X11 would work if you're going to store them in a storage box. If you already have the box, just cut up some paper to see what size would work and what would provide the most value.

After reading about the magnetic vent covers here, I went to Home Depot and bought a package. I trimmed each one in thirds so I could put them in the DVD-style cases that Stampin'Up! carries now. I already had my Nesties in there with just a magnet strip, but these vent covers are much thinner and cover the whole interior. I can put four sets in a case - two on each side - except for the larger ones (I just bought Labels Ten and it needs one side of the case all to itself). I did have to trim the cover a bit more to get it to lie flat - it's probably 4 7/8" x 7 5/16". Lovin' it so far...

I got my magnetic sheets from the dollar store. The store didn't have any the last time I was there but they ordered them in for me and I had them within a week. I paid about $1.25 per sheet. They were a little larger than I needed but I just cut them down to the size I needed with my tonic paper trimmer.

I bought my chip board years ago at a lss with the full intention of using a bind-it-all to make some memory books. The chip board was originally 12 x 12. So what I did was take it to my office supply store where they have a super heavy duty cutter and asked them to cut it to 5 x 7. It just looked a lot neater than what I could do at home.

I didn't use chipboard, I just used cardstock. Actually I used thinner cardstock, like the thinner kinds I had gotten from Michaels. But I color coded, so I used red for all the circles, and green for all the ovals, blue for all the squares, etc. That works really well - I can just look for the color and find the plain circles, scallop circles,etc.
The box was getting really heavy, so I trimmed the magnetic strips where I could, like in the corners. It probably didn't do a whole lot. I just have a LOT of nestabilities!

Also a great suggestion instead of chipboard. Maybe that would also help out with the weight!! & then maybe not!!

Well the surge is over, and no luck in finding the faux leather storage box. Checked Walmart, 2 Target stores, Michaels, AC Moore, Joanns, & Office Depot. Ended up getting a 9 litre storage box (Really useful boxes) and that is that! Now just to find the time to put it all together!

Thank-you all for your help!

Default Nestie storage

Well here I am still not organized with the nesties! I was out of town & just got back the other day. Pulled out my nesties last night along with the "Really Useful Box" and decided the box is to big! I already have a few of those boxes so I will hang on to it and use it for something else! Does anyone have a clue where I can purchase one of those leather faux boxes as posted above? I already looked at quite a few stores with no luck

Thanks for any suggestions you can give me!

Do you have Hobby Lobby? I think they have some baskets that are similar.

Yes, I have a Hobby Lobby, not super close but will check there maybe over the week-end. About 45 min. each way.

Thank-you for the tip!

Default ArtBin Magnetic Die Storage

Hi Everyone,
I'm totally new to Splitcoaststampers and thought I'd just jump right in feet first with the solution I'm now using for all my metal dies (sorry if it's already been mentioned)!

ArtBin recently brought out their Magnetic Die Storage container with magnet sheets that go inside. The plastic storage container comes with 3 sheets and you can buy more sheets. They come 3 per pack. I've discovered I can fit 21 sheets in one storage container and really like the system.

I immediately filled one up and was pondering buying a second one when I discovered that the Recollections brand at Michaels has the exact same style storage container for half the price! I went to my Michaels armed with an ArtBin magnet sheet and it fit perfectly. So I just ordered more magnetic sheets to go in the Recollections container! Perfect

Hope that little bit of info helps save you guys some money which you can spend on more dies instead

Happy Stamping!

I have the magnetic "books" that I buy with coupons at HL. They used to be Quikuts but the label changed so I'm not sure if that is still the brand. They are probably much more expensive than vent cover magnets but they are thin, very neat and line up nicely on the shelf. They can hold four or more sets of nesties. I saw the idea on Patter Cross' blog.

I just got an email from Connie asking me to share a pic of my magnetic die storage containers and the dimensions! I've attached a pic, hope I did it right!

The ArtBin one is on the left and the Recollections one from Michaels on the right. You can see the Magnetic Storage Sleeves inside the one container.

Dimensions on the Recollections box:
10.3 in x 3.3 in x 9.6 in

Glad to be of help on my first day here at Splitcoaststampers

Happy Stamping!

Hey Arlene,
Quickutz is now Lifestyles Crafts and they do still have those black magnetic books although the one on their website does look slightly different to ones I've seen in the past. Seems to have a rim on it.

That's the magnetic book! Love it! The ArtBin/Reflections boxes look lighter weight, easier to grab and go, and less expensive but since I already have the books I'll stick with them.

Hi Leigh! Thanks so much for your time in taking the pic. I'm sure everyone will appreciate it. If all else fails I guess that is what I will be using!

I use several methods to store my dies, but here's a blog post that shows how I store dies I want to group together.

My New ArtBin 12x12 Magnetic Die Storage

Hope this helps!

I use large bulletin boards. I adhere the magnetic sheets to the board and then the dies are out and visible. This works for me and it looks really cool! Everyone who sees it thinks it is art - they don't scrap so they are not familiar with the dies. Anyway have fun!

I do something similar. I put magnetic sheets (bought from Oriental Trading) on the wall behind where I die cut and have my favorite dies there. But I ran out of space so I am using 8 1/2 x 11 chipboard and the magnetic sheets to store the rest.
