Trouble Storing Nestabilities Dies? :: Check Out My New Storage Idea...





The pic above shows how i used to store my Nestabilities, in a CD wallet, this was of storing them was ok, but had 2 problems. Number one some of the newer lables dies were too big for the CD wallet



Number two, the magnet i had them stored on was magnetic paper, so if you tried to take the sheet of dies out the paper would bend and they would end up on the floor!!

Introducing Magnetic Foam Sheet from Hobbycraft - this is on a FAB offer at the mo, it is £1 for 3 sheets, what a total bargain!! If you do decide to get some, get a couple of extra sheets as i have some projects coming up using this fabby stuff!!



So.... What i have done is popped my biggest die on a sheet and cut a square / rectangle around it then popped the other dies on... I am getting 3-4 squares per sheet... i am not finished yet mind you... i have 3 D wallets of dies!!!



I had pink and putple to store my dies and some other shades for some projects!!



To finish off i have labled the back, i had them labled in the CD wallet as it makes it easier when making a project to tell you guys what set i have used!
And i got this little CD box for 1.29 to pop them all in!





Ta daa!! Hoping this inspires some people as i kow storing these can be a challenge!!!

I keep my nellies on the magnetic funky foam from hobbycraft. Pink and black to go with my bigshot. The cd box is a good idea.

Great idea, must look for these sheets in Hobbycraft (was there a few days ago and didn't see them) At the moment I too keep mine in CD cases but they're not ideal.

What a brilliant idea.. not keen on the colour though LOL.. Unfortunately I don't have a Hobbycraft anywhere near me it's a four hour round trip to my nearest one since the concession in Woolies in Plymouth closed .. So I will have to put it onto my wishlist for Westpoint later this month...
