Nestabilities Storage

How many of you own Spellbinder's dies - but are looking for an easy, space-saving way to store them? I am super excited about this storage that I came up with & wanted to tell you about it!

Supplies I Used:
- Adhes-A-MAG magnet roll (I found this at Michaels & used my 40% coupon)
- Chipboard backing from paper packs (the 12 x 12 cardboard-like piece companies place in packages of scrapbooking paper)
- Bind-it-All & 5/8" coil
- Scrapbooking paper, cardstock, stamps, etc --- (anything you want to use to make your storage pretty)

  1. Cut 9 chipboard pieces to size. (The size will depend on what size of dies you have. Give yourself a little "margin room" on each side + about 1/2" extra room for the top so that you have room for binding)
  2. Cut 8 adhesive magnet sheets the same size and adhere to ONE side of the chipboard. (If you have magnet sheets on both sides, the dies will not stay in place.)
  3. Decorate the remaining chipboard piece to create your cover. Add patterned paper to back side.
  4. Add patterned paper to 1 chipboard/magnet panel. This will be your back cover.
  5. Bind

This will make a booklet that will hold 8 sets of dies. My book below contains all of my regular & petite oval dies. (Small & Large Ovals, Small & Large Scalloped Ovals, Small & Large Petite Ovals, & Small & Large Scalloped Petite Ovals)

Below is a pic of what my dies look like now. I REALLY like having all of my dies in one spot like this. Now I just need to buy some more magnet sheets so that I can make more books to hold all of my other dies! :)

Please let me know if you have any questions! :)

  1. love the idea. I also bought an inexpensive bulletin board adhered magnet to it and store mine that way, since I have tons of wall space but no shelf space that works well too.

  2. Awesome idea Julie and it looks great! Mary P.

  3. Love your idea, I'll have to try it after I make all my Christmas gifts. :)

  4. Love your idea Julie! Mine are in CD tins with magnetic tape! I love the owl

  5. WOW! yeah... that is pretty darn cool!

  6. Oh, my gosh! That is absolutely fantastic! I may have to try this. Thanks!

  7. What a creative storage idea! Adorable. Now if I only had some nestabilities to try it with. :)

  8. LOVE this idea...and so easy to store everything!


  9. I found your blog in a search for something else and I am so glad. This is a great idea for storage! You are so clever!
    I would like to try it myself. Thanks for sharing.

  10. What an awesome album! Love the idea of keeping the dies in one book. Looks great. I have a coupon and been thinking what I need... now I know! :o) TFS!

  11. I love this idea! I have some magnetic sheets that should work.

    I do have a question for you. Is that book you made ALL ovals? Ü I just have the circles (it came as one set, but there were two sets of scallop and two sets of non-scallop).

  12. What a fab idea! I've been using CD cases, but have wondered what to do if I get a set that doesn't fit. This is the answer! TFS! (Plus it may just force me to use my BIA! Ha!)


  14. Love your storage book idea! I've been researching Adhes-A-Mag and find that it comes in 20 mil and 30 mil. What is the mil value of yours. please? I would like to purchase some, but since I have to travel 2 hours in any direction to buy it, I'll be looking online. :)



  15. I love this storage idea and the colors. TFS!

  16. What a great I will HAVE to purchase a Bind-IT :) if I needed encouragement to indulge my hobby. You have some great stuff here and I will be checking back soon.

  17. I love it!!!! I am going to make one for myself this weekend and one as a holiday gift for a friend! TFS

  18. OH WOWIE! Like I say to my friends when they come up with some sort of genius idea - OVERACHIEVER!!!!!

    You rock my world! Thank you for sharing this idea! Can you guess what I'm off to work on right now?!
