Tuesday Tips or Techniques-Storage Tip for Edgelits & Framelits!

Did I tell you how I just adore our new Framelits & Edgelits Dies? Well, I do! I worry though, about storing them so to keep them nice & neat and so that the metal dies don't end up warping. Today's "Tuesday Tip" is a little something to help that.

Magnetic Sheets.....yes, Stampin' Up! sells Magnetic Sheets in the Idea Book & Catalog. I measured the envelope that the dies are stored in and cut a Magnetic Sheet just a tad smaller with my Paper Cutter. The dies "stick" to the magnets and stay in place:

Here are photos of the Labels Collection Framelits Dies. I also added an address label on the bottom corner of each sheet with the "sandwich" instructions for the Big Shot Machine for quick reference:

I did the same for my new Edgelits Dies:

and for my Hearts Collection Framelits:

The Magnetic Sheets slide right into the envelopes, snap them shut and you have instant organization and storage all in one! Don't peel the paper backing as your Magnetic Sheet will become sticky if you do!

I hope you have enjoyed today's "Tuesday Tip" and I hope you plan on doing this with your new dies! Have a great day!
