Storing Magnetic Dies

I have been trying to find a way to organize my magnetic dies.  They are super thin and I have been so afraid that they are going to get bent.  I had previously stored them in a clear box and had to search and dig through my stash to find the one die I was looking for.  So, I did some research on YouTube and found a solution that I thought would work for me.  I got the idea from Leilani -  I altered her idea a bit though, because (1) I couldn't find the magnetic sheets she used and (2) I had a ton of magnetic strips left over from a project I did in my classroom a few years ago.  So, here's what I came up with. 

Spellbinders Dies

I used 12 x 12 black chipboard that I purchased from Blue Moon Scrapbooking.  I cut the chipboard in half and covered the front page with DP.  I used the new collection by Echo Park, For the Record.  I love, love, love this collection.  I decided to cut out the labels from the Spellbinders packaging, rather than create my own.  The flower is by Prima and the bling is by Recollections.  I bound the book with my Bind-It-All. 

I also created a book for my My Favorite Things dies, which I just can't get too many of!

MFT Dies

I used the same chipboard and the same DP as I did for the book above.  The trim is from Frog Feathers on Etsy and the bling is by ZVA Creative, which I got from Stamper's Dream.  I just love the "catalogue" labels that came with the paper collection.  I thought they were so cute for this project.  I love this storage idea.  It is working so well for me.  Hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon!  Happy Scrapping. :)
