I don’t know about you, but my cup runnith over when it comes to framelits, dies and embossing folders! I’ve tried storing all my accessories for the BIG Shot numerous ways such as, in boxes, and drwaers only to find I always run out of space. When this happens I tend to store the over-flow where ever it fits only to find out later I can’t find what I’m looking for or I forget I have them at all! Does this sound like you? If so, today I want to share what works for me thoroughly.
Now the idea of storing your BIG Shot accessories in a binder isn’t my original idea. In fact there are companies out there who sell binders and magnetic sheets for just this purpose. However, the systems these companies have are quite costly. This storage idea is less costly and don’t you love how the magnetic sheet holds the metal framelits? So neat and tidy!
Here’s what I did:
1. I went to Home Depot and purchased Magnetic Vent Covers. There are three to a pack for about $4.50. I cut down the 15″ x 7″ sheets in thirds, so the cut down sheets measure 5″ x 7″. Each cut sheet costs about $.50 and fit perfectly in a 5″ x 8″ binder and page protectors.
2. I cut scrap cardboard to 5′ x 7″ to use in between each magnetic sheet. Two magnetic sheets and the middle cardboard sheet fits into one page protector.
3. With my DYMO Label Maker I labeled the name and Stampin’ Up! product number on each sheet as shown.
I did a similar set-up for my Embossing Folders minus the magnetic sheets.
I think this method works for me, because so far I have all my framelits, nestabilities and embossing folders in two binders. It’s neat and compact and when I need more room, and you know I will sooner or later, I’ll just buy another binder. I hope this helps you get all your thinlits, framelits, nestabilities and embossing folders organized.
Nothing like snow days for getting organized!
