Default Nestabilities Storage

I am so new to using Nestablilities. I just got my very first pack yesterday. My question though for you is how do you store them? I have very limited storage/scrapbooking supply space. So I need to find the best way to store my nestabilities that takes up the least room?

Thanks for any input that you may have.

We have talked about this in several threads. To get the best answers, I would type "nestabilities" in the search box. Have fun with them!

Agree with doing the search - I have seen some ingenious Nestabilities storage ideas from DVD cases to folders with magnetic sheets and magnetic vent covers attached to walls and doors.

I bought 1' x 2' magnet sheets at Hobby Lobby with a coupon for $6.00. It comes in a roll. I have mine on my wall, but if you don't have wall space, you could always put it inside a cabinet or on a door. I love that I can see them all and don't have to get a binder or box out, rifle through it, then put everything back before putting the binder/box away. I had mine in CD cases before the magnet sheets, and couldn't stand it that way.

I went to Lowe's and got a 3 pack of magnetic vent covers for $4 and I just hang it up and they look like this!

Do you have something over the top to keep dust off??

I put mine on 8 1/2 x 11 magnetic sheets, then i put them in page protectors and put them in a binder

Mine are on magnetic photo sheets from the dollar story that are cut in half and slid into a CD or DVD zip up case that is 2 layers deep so that the longer sets of Nesties will fit in. That way they are portable and can't get pieces lost. Too much money to lose. I would vomit if someone ever stole that case on me. I think there is close to $500 in stuff in there. Maybe more. I'm actually afraid to add it all up.

Here is a picture of my storage along with links to many other ways to store your Nesties. I tried to link lots of options so you can find what works best for you. I hope it helps. Blessings,

Also one of my considerations in investing in storage is that my craft area is in an open space so if we have little fingers visit us I don't want little fingers to help themselves and play with them.

I put a rectangle from a magnetic paper sheet onto each side of a CD case, and then stick the Nestabilities on them. I label the spine with a permanent marker and they sit upright in a small box.

Love the look of them on the wall, but I have limited space, too, clever kitties, and don't have the tabletop space to leave my C'bug out anyway, so if I'm getting them out, I'm getting the 'Bug out, too.

I can usually get 8 sets of "normal-sized" Nesties in the QK Magnetic Folders (official name is Magnetic Storage Book, for Googlers). Four sets of the long rectangles fit with room to spare. The new 12" border dies aren't going to fit in the folders. I'll have to find some other place for those when the time comes.

Amazon has the folders on their 3-for-4 promo right now. Since the total is over $25, shipping is free, and there's no tax (at least for me in Ohio).

Buy 3 get 4 -- the price works out to $9.74 each. You might find a Hobby Lobby or someplace that'll take a 40% off coupon, but you can only get one at a time (unless you take your kids with you and hand them a coupon and $10 ) and my HL only stocks 2 folders at a time.

I bought 16 on Amazon and didn't have to drive all over the place. They cost me about $1.40 each more than with a coupon (assuming I could have found them with a coupon). Worth it to me.

They're currently backordered on Amazon. You can still place your order and they won't charge your card until it ships. Amazon really does hold off on the charge, too, unlike some other sites that charge right away, regardless of whether or not they intend to ship your product in the near future.

http://www.amazon.com/Quickutz-Revol...3922451&sr=8-1



OT: The QK Magpie system is also B3G4, along with the nesting tins. The orders total more than $25, so free shipping applies. Amazon takes the lowest-price item as the free 4th item, so don't put the $9.99 tins in the same order as the $29.99 storage units, or they'll use the tins as your free 4th item(s). Shipping is free, so separate your orders (storage in one, tins in another) to get the 4th storage unit free.

Storage unit/cabinet (also in white): http://www.amazon.com/Quickutz-Magpi...3922555&sr=1-1

Storage tins (all 3 colors are available and you can mix & match to get 4 sets): http://www.amazon.com/Quickutz-3-Pie...ch_ai_-2_1_tit

Also if you like the enclosed system but the QK books are too heavy (I have heard this as a common feedback) StampinKub did pages of magnetic sheets in an enclosed binder - I think Gina K has a 5x7ish size and Sunday International (maker of EZ mount) have mini and full sized binders that enclose. I have looked at office stores and haven't found anything similar as yet.

I got these magnetic strips at IKEA, they are supposed to hold utensils....I love the straight clean look of them and they are nice an narrow so I don't have to use my fingernails to try to get them off.
Works for me!

I use the white binder type storage cases that close and latch from Gina K. I put 6 of the sheets in each binder and use magnetic tape to hold two sets of nesties on each side of the insert in the binder. I like this method so I can grab the entire thing when I want to visit someone else.
Blessings.

Default New to Nesties

subscribing - just got my first nesties today. Can someone also point me in to a thread that tells the sandwiches to use them in my big shot. Can you cut and emboss at the same time?

It would be great to also find out how everyone is storing the new releases i.e. the inverted circles and squares. These are going to be quite a challenge for storage.

I used the SU tins that are on clearance for $1. See pictures in my gallery.

I store mine in a box from creative memories. The box comes with three compartments and white plastic dividers. I cover the dividers with magnetic sheet. I can get one or two sets on each divider card. I have about twenty or so sets in my box and its not nearly full.

I like CD cases with magnetic strips. I keep them in a small drawer and I have so far fit the 15+ sets I own plus space for more.
