I have several different sizes of Sizzix Dies, Tim Holtz dies & Spellbinders dies. How do YOU store them? I've tried plastic boxes, wood boxes, closet sorter made of canvas that hangs (sections are big enough for lg dies), and I've even just put them on a shelf by themselves. I'd like it to look good--not anything expensive but something creative & fun. The different sizes makes it difficult to look organized. Help! I'm
I bought an inexpensive round curtain rod, and some S-hooks from Ikea. I have a very small craft area, and mounted the rod between the ends of my desk hutch. All of the 'open' dies hang on this rod. I have a poster frame on the wall that I have decorated with DP. Added some magnet strips, and the solid dies are kept on the magnets. Would love a better system, but my space and funds are very limited. Hope this helps!
Sharon, hi. I have a wonderful suggestion for your Spellbinder dies that was passed to me from a good friend Lynn. Here is a link to a helpful video you might want to watch just for fun ideas. Have fun, that is my next chore also.
Yes, that's what I mean. Well, all of them, actually. Sometimes the bigger, Sizzix dies are even harder to store because they are all different sizes. I worry about losing the Spellbinder dies because they are so thin, so that's a concern, too.
I have my Sizzix Framelits stored in a case, like sold here at StampTV, using magnetic sheets to fit into it. I purchased these sheets from Crafter's Companion. I keep looking at Xyron magnetic tape thinking it might work on the binder sheets, rather than purchase many more magnetic binder sheets. I like these binders as they close and I do not lose the small dies. I have a few small dies from Stephanie Bernard that are in the package they came in, sitting behind their stamp set in the binder sheets she has. I have some of those Sizzix storage envelopes coming soon. I am eager to give them a try.
I tend to be "out of site, out of mind" when it comes to my tools. I attached a 12"x24" magnet sheet, with thumb tacks, to the wall next to my cutting table. It holds my metal dies perfectly. I also labeled each set so I know where they belong and included notes about which will co-ordinate with which. I keep my thick dies and my embossing folders in pretty stacking bins next to my Big Shot. I can spend more time creating and less time digging for what I want!
