I am so happy to have one more day this weekend. I have a list a mile long of chores, errands and other around the house things to do. But alas, where am I? I am taking photos, and uploading them on my blog. LOL! I am so addicted to crafting. That's ok, my obsession is your treasure! Anyway, on to my project.
Again, I came up with a storage solution for my spellbinder dies and other smaller metal dies I own. I searched the Internet and saw bits and pieces of ideas I liked, but nothing I wanted to incorporate completely.
I knew I wanted to keep the front pages of the spellbinder dies. I needed the visual picture of the shapes and the names of the collections. But I needed strong magnetic sheeting to adhere these dies to. My loving husband uses large sheets at his company, so he brought home a scrap piece for me to use. It was perfect!
Next I took the front information page from plastic packaging of my spellbinder dies. I cut a sheet of magnetic sheeting the same size. The white coating peels off, and it becomes a sticker. (how perfect is that?) I adhered it to the back of the spellbinder information sheet. I corner punched to round the edges.

I am a very frugal crafter. I ONLY buy what I use. No more. I am not a collector, or purchase items and never use them. With that said, I only own a handful of spellbinder dies. They are simply too expensive to have a large quantity of. I love them, don't get me wrong. I only buy them on sale with a coupon.

I know what the next two collections I have my eye on are: plain CIRCLES, and PLAIN ovals. (I don't care for doilies and frilly edges. I think of grandmas and old coffee tables decorated with paper doilies, lol) yucky. :)
|this system works great for all heights of dies (tall and shorter ones)|
