I am sure that lots of us have bought Nestability Dies and then struggled to find a suitable way to store them, without losing or damaging them, once the packaging has been opened.

I thought that I would share with you my solution to this problem!

1. Take a standard CD case ...

... and remove the CD holder insert.

2. Cut a piece of plain paper 138mm x 118mm ...

... and cover it using a Xyron Laminate / Magnetic cartridge, or similar.

3. This should fit inside the CD case and the Nestability dies can then be placed on to the magnetic surface.

4. The dies will stay in place, even when they are stored vertically ...

... and are easily removed without risk of bending or damaging the dies.

5. Don’t forget to label the spine of the CD case for easy identification when it is stored on a shelf!
Thanks for dropping by. Hope this comes in handy!!
