Today I'm going to show you a Clever Handy Storage Solution for Die Cuts! But first I want to give credit where it is due--one of my stampers, Jackie Silvestri, has passed this wonderful tip to me and suggested I might like to share it with all of you...so thanks very much to Jackie for her cleverness and her willingness to share with us.
Do you ever prepare some dies cuts and then find you don't need them...they are the wrong size or the wrong color? But, hey, those are great cuts that you can use later....do you do what I've been doing---just toss them in a box to sort through later? And, if you are like me....I forget what's in the box or am too lazy to sort through a couple of hundred cuts to see if there's one in there I want to use.
Here's a great way to store them and keep them organized---they'll be just where you need them when you want them....Jackie uses the Clear translucent envelopes in the Stampin'Up! catalog (item #102619)...I'm going to walk you through this clever solution so you can put it into use today! (One of the best parts is there's no labeling involved--I hate labeling stuff!)
Here are some extra die cuts I had left over from a project (note I'm using a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece of red cardstock so that you can better see the die cuts---this isn't necessary if you are doing this yourself)
Then when I need to access the die cuts I just flip the envelope up reach in and pull out what I need and flip the envelope down again--the opening remains to the back to protect against pieces (especially small ones) from falling out.
Isn't this a clever easy quick solution...no more searching through the scrap box, no more wondering if you had any leftovers, the are right there in the coordinating stamp set box ready for use!
