How I store my Dies

I thought I’d do you a very quick video below showing you how I store my dies in my craft room. I use lots of different brands of dies; die-namics, Cuttlebug/Provocraft, Nestabilities, store brand dies etc, and a lot of them have several dies in each set – and some are quite small and easily lost. So I store all of mine in empty cd cases, using magnetic self-adhesive sheets to hold the dies in place. Then I can see exactly what’s where, and clearly identify missing ones that I’ve left lying around my craft area (tut-tut, Wendy!) and need finding immediately before they accidently get binned!


  1. Cool storage idea. I think thicker CD cases are getting harder to locate because they keep making thinner and thinner cases. I keep my eye out for them at garage sales in the US. I use the thicker CD case to store my stamps.
    I have my dies in solid tins that store nicely but I forget that I have them and don't use them as often as I would like. I will try putting them in with my stamp storage and see if I use them more often.
    I wondered why you didn't cut the magnet sheet with the largest Nestie die and put that in the case instead of the small squares. Perhaps the magnet sheet is too thick to cut that way. Just a thought...

  2. Hi Wendy,
    Thanks for video. The punched magnetic shapes are brilliant! My Nesties are still in their original boxes.
