Nestabilities Storage

If you have fallen under the spell of the new "Nestabilities" die cuts then you will want to find a way to storage them. I found this idea on Emily's blog http://emilygiovanni.com/?p=1891 and it works well for most of the Nestabilities. The ones that stack on top of each other (scallop squares) don't work as well with this storage idea but enough so you won't lose them.
I paid $20.00 for 145 empty CD cases on Craig's list because I was in a hurry. Most of the time you can get them for free. The cheapest place to find the magnet sheets ( three 8 1/2 x 11sheets) is at Michael's with a 40% off coupon - retails for $6.49. Don't go to an office supply store for the magnet sheets, they cost $$$$. If you go into Michael's, the magnet sheets come rolled up so don't look for full sheets. Can you tell I was totally confused when I was looking for it? :) One of the employees stocking the shelves had to actually pick up the box as I was standing in front of the magnet section and point to the label. The one I got is called "Color A Mag" by ProMAG.

glad you liked the idea! Oh and for the sqaures (the scalloped ones) I used 2 cd cases. I put one set in each and alternated between sides so they lay in there fine! hope that helps!
