I have several ways I keep my spellbinder dies. I have a peg board. I have a magnetic bulletin board. I also have two full Art bins and plan on ordering a third. For full use of the sheets, open the bin and let the sheets spread out at the opening (don't pick through the stack as this will cause all kinds of problems), file through the sheets, pull out the die set or sets you want to use. It is convient to keep the sheet out and replace the dies as they are used so they don't get lost. Also dies can be kept in sets. If the sheets were magnetic on both sides, the sheets would stick together. There are just a few tricks to use the art bin efficiently.
The person who invented the magnetic sheets for the art bin is a genius. My drawers were a mess of spellbinders dies that I kept in the original packaging but could never find the one I wanted and when I did, it was a hassle to get it out of the packaging and then get it back in. Now my dies are neatly on my desk in the art bin, not getting bent or damaged, within arms reach and I can easily reach the size and shape I want. I feel like a new woman.
Trying to keep up with all my thin dies has been a real pain - until now. I've seen lots of options, but this is actually workable, and affordable. The magnetic sheet is the same as the ones you can buy at any craft/hobby store, but they are cut to fit perfectly in the case. I really like being able to see my dies easily, with out having to open up envelopes or individual cases. I have 9 sheets and there is still lots of space after my 125 dies.
These sheets and the Art Bin case are the perfect way to store and carry my dies at home and when traveling. I keep my dies sorted by whether they're shapes such as hearts, stars, ovals, etc. or designs such as swirls, beach themes, and flower borders. I like being able to add the magnetic die sheets as my die collection grows.
What a perfect, neat & compact way to store metal dies. I have tried different ways to store them in the past, but this one beats them all. Reasonably priced & easily portable with the handle on the storage box. A nice way to be able to carry them to scrapping days & events.
I have been struggling for some time now to keep my smaller metal dies in order, no more i ordered this as soon as i saw it . I am so happy i did, i now have my mess under control. i will be ordering more soon.
These are great quality - put more in a package, please. They hold the dies so they can be organized and stored without getting separated or damaged. A great invention!
Just got my artbin and magnetic sheets tonight--and will be ordering more. Love the magnetic aspect, and takes less room than individual cases--the DVD size just didn't work for me. Can't wait to use for my alphas.
This product is too small to be cost effective...cannot get very many die on a page...would have been better if magnetic on both sides...then the edges curl a little which really cuts down on how much it will hold...Since I opened it and discovered how ineffectual it was, now it cannot be returned!
I am so excited about thes magnetic die sheets. I kept putting it off due to seeing the size and thinking one would not beable to get many on a sheet. As it turns out, they are perfect. I LOVE them. I arranged mine and labeled the tops with what was on the sheet. For example one is Christmas, Flowers, Leaves, Shapes, Hearts, Labels, Tags, etc. It makes it so easy to get to and I have found I can get quite a few on each one. I wanted to tell Belffinder since she is not happy with them, to let me know at lcrawford2455atyahoo.com and I will be more than happy to buy hers from her.
I really like this system for organizing my Spellbinders Nestabilities dies. I can usually fit 2 sets per magnetic page (sometimes 3 if small) and they fit in the case perfectly. By being magnetic on only one side, it prevents dies from the page behind it getting pulled off. I bought extra pages and love that all my dies fit in it and I have room for my expanding collection. It's the best system I've seen for organizing and traveling to crops with your dies.
