My Great Spellbinders Storage System

As my nestabilities dies sets increased in number, finding a good storage system became a concern. I had them in CD cases, small carrying cases I found, among other storage types. Finding the dies I wanted became a major chore. Now I have come up with a storage system that not only works, it is relatively easy to transport to crops.

I got this loose-leaf binder from my local Costco. I like it because it has a zipper around the outside so any dies that come loose won't fall out. This particular style also has a handle on the outside making it like carrying a briefcase.

I put clear page protectors in it and put self-adhesive magnetic tape (purchased in a roll at Wal-Mart) onto 8 1/2 by 11" cardstock and placed the magnetic dies on pages. I also wrote the Spellbinders Item Numbers on the cardstock mostly so I would have a record of my dies and not keep buying duplicates. I also put the Item Numbers into an Excel spreadsheet that I can take shopping with me.

  1. What a great idea! I love this! I typed up and Excel spreadsheet of all the Nestabilities so I can check off what I have, but still store them in the package for lack of a better idea.
