Managing your collection of Die-namics can be daunting if you don’t have a system in place -- especially when the sets include multiple, often small, pieces. Today the My Favorite Things Design team is sharing their solutions for keeping their Die-namics collection in check!
The dividers I use here are the same kind I use for my stamp and stencil bins. They are white plastic and came from another type of stamp storage system I purchased several years ago. Unfortunately, they are no longer being made and I haven't been able to find them even on the secondary market or close-out stores. :( Alternately, you could cut down plastic report covers/pocket folders from any office supply store -- that's what I plan on doing when I need more!
These are my Die Categories:
3D, Alphas-Numbers-Words, Animals, Backgrounds-Cover Plates, Banners, Blueprints, Borders-Edges, Centerpieces & Transformables, Circles, Doilies, Flowers, Frames-Labels, Holidays-Seasons, Laina Lamb, Nature-Fruit, Ovals, Rectangles, Squares, Shapes-Other, STAX-Tags-Flags
I use the same Large and Small Storage Pockets from My Favorite Things that I use for my stamps. Here's a close-up view of the Small Storage Pockets with Die-namics in them. These pockets measure 5" square:
The Large Storage Pockets are able to hold just about any die set, as they measure a generous 7-1/2" x 5-3/4":
Die sets for which I do not have the retail package get labeled with my Label Maker. For any die sets that do not come with a magnetic storage sheet (I LOVE this feature about most of MFT's dies!), I cut up magnetic vent covers and use them. They are the most economical magnetic solution I've been able to find:
