Hi there. I got a Sizzix BigKick with Christmas cash, and I'm struggling with storage/organization of the dies themselves. I bought a utensil drawer divider, which works awesome for the long border dies, and I've got the Spellbinders on magnetic sheets figured out. But, what do you do with the original/bigz dies? None of them are the same size. One is size of DVD then the next is a square and even one is barely larger than a credit card. And of course, these are the thick ones, and not the sizzlets. I just don't like the idea of them all tossed in a box. Also, for the sizzlets, I tried to see if I could get them to fit into baseball card sheets-too big. Thanks anyone for suggestions!

I use the boxes Sizzix has made in the past for storing them; not sure if they still make them.

I use the Sizzix-made long plastic cases for my Sizzlits and decorative strips (the same kind of case a 35-die alphabet comes in), but I can't find those here on sb.com to link, sorry.

Oh, and even the Cuttlebug brand embossing folders I got weren't all the same size, so one is too big for the embossing folder storage binder from HL. Suggestions welcome there too. Thanks ladies!

As for embossing folders, I used to keep them in a small CD wallet, but now I have some that are too big for that. Unfortunately the solution I came up with for those isn't really easy duplicate-able - I have a library card catalog unit in my craft room and they fit great in one of the drawers of that.

Man, those boxes are nice, but not much capacity. Bummer. Thanks for the direction though. I looked a a DVD rack, but that only goes so far...

All my sizzlits are in a binder in pages I bought from sizzix that are like the baseball card holders only for sizzlits so they aren't too big. I use a decorative CD/DVD rack I got on sale at HL for the bigz and original dies. My embossing folders are in a drawer.

I have a kitchen island in my scrap room that I use for my die cutting "station." I store the Bigz dies on end in one of the deep drawers. The smaller Sizzlets ones are in a binder in the same drawer.

I have a 3 drawer nightstand under my table that I store all the large dies in, but I'm out out of room in there. Not sure what my next step will be for those just yet.

Sizzlets are in the long plastic Sizzix cases and I have them stacked up in a large oblong planter on a shelf in my closet.

My embossing folders are standing up in 2 small baskets on a book shelf. Makes it easy to flip through them.
