ARTBIN JUST CAME OUT WITH A CASE WITH MAGNETIC PAGES for these. They just introduced them. They are plastic cases that have handles. They lock tight so you can carry them. They have magnetic pages that fit into them. Each case will hold 21 magnetic pages. The case with 3 pages is around. $16. bucks. Refill pages are in packages of 3 for around 8. bucks.

Here is a link to the Artbin Site that announces this on their news section

Oh wow! That could be my answer! Jo-Ann's is having an Artbin sale this week -- wonder if these are available yet?

thanks for posting this ... my nestie collection is growing exponentially (21 and counting), but I just figured out a fantastic storage system ...

Each set is in it own dvd sleeve on a magnetic 5x7 piece glued to a cardboard backing ... I then cut the card that came in the case that has the name of the set and put that in the sleeve as well. All the sleeves are in a small container I got from The Container store and the whole thing sits on my desk and takes up no room at all. Best of all, I can add maybe 50 more to the case before I would need to use another one.

I got the pack of dvd sleeves at Target for maybe $5 and I am thrilled with the results.

It would cost me a fortune to store my nesties like this I have fifty sets,,,,PLUS I like to have the original cardboard folder so I remember how many dies each set has,,,,,sometimes I forget.

BUT this is great for my Grand Nesties,,,,,,,they don't fit in the DVD cases I store my regular ones in! thanks!

Sounds cool. I cut a piece of magnetic vent cover the size of the cardboard folder it comes in. I put the Nesties inside the cover on the magnet. It keeps them all nice and organized in one place.

Love the idea but not big enough for all I have. I'd like a better way to store mine

How do you store them, Jane??? I know it took months for me to find a method that works for me. And my method wouldn't work for everyone,,,,it's pretty individual, and it depends on tons of things, not the least of which is storage space.

that's why I found the dvd sleeves instead of the cases Holly ... they take up WAY less room, are completely clear so I can see what's in them without opening them up, and fit easily in desktop storage (my shelf space is at max capacity)

I really like ArtBin products, but that's a pretty spendy storage solution. I use one of those old magnetic photo albums. I keep the set on its backing card (Holly, you can write or label the number of dies in the set, or keep the front panel, too) & pop it into the album. An 18-pager will hold 36 sets, & it tucks neatly under the drawer of my computer hutch. Best part is, they're super cheap. If you want to keep it closed to carry it, just wrap an elastic headband around it.

This looks similar to how I already store mine. I use the plastic Iris case like they have at Michael's. You can get them on sale for about $6 (or use a coupon). Then I take the 12x12 chipboard backings off of paper packs, or from inside paper that's been shipped to me. I bought a roll of magnetic strip and just put enough strip down on the chipboard sheets to hold each set of nesties. Then the chipboard sheets just stack on top of each other in the Iris case. It works really well and holds my HUGE amount of dies. I'd need 2-3 Artbin cases, at least. These are a great solution until your collection gets huge like mine, though. Thanks for sharing!

a clear plastic envelope that fits dvds ... the same height and width as the case, but MUCH thinner ... I bought them in a pack of 25 at Target (in the section with the cd and dvd cases)

they have a flap at the top, like an envelope, but the whole thing is clear so you can see inside.

I got a roll of magnetic canvas, cut and glued it to cardboard to fit inside the envelopes ... then the nesties just lay on the magnetic card ... I slid the label on the back side so I can store them either way (nesties facing froward or labels facing forward)

I like this solutions of yours with the 12 x 12 Iris case too...although it's hard to picture having THAT many dies! I'm going slow on purchasing tools. No tool without a discount is my motto.

I decided to Email Artbin because I still have not seen this product. It took a couple of days but got a great response:

I STILL would like to see the item before buying unseen. I came close to buying a magnetic board at Office Depot. They had one with a nice black frame that would match my office but it was $58. I thought that sounded expensive.

Has anyone seen it yet? The Artbin website still does not have a photo, or I did not find it.

I think it's still too new. I've seen it on a couple of other scrapbooking sites, only one had it available but not the extra refill sheets, otherwise I've just seen it on pre-order.

I saw them earlier this week in a Paper Wishes catalog. I did not want to spend the money for the case (I've been spending too much lately), but I did buy a set of 3 magnetic sheets. I will just keep them in a folder.

I have several sets of nesties & lots of cuttlebug folders...and have never used them. I seem to collect tools more than use them. I spend more time shopping and reading blogs than I do scrapping. The lo's that have used nesties look fabulous. I just can't figure out what I want to do with mine. I bought a cuttlebug and cut out one little fish just to see if it really worked. (It did.) I have the extra cuttlebug plates to do long dies and thin dies. I have the toys...just not the time or brains.

I am the same way. I have several embossing folders, etc. that don't get used. And it seems I have no imagination when it comes to stickles. I have some nesties on order with Amazon.com, and I really want to incorporate them into my LOs. We'll see!

I saw the Artbin magnetic case in a Paper Wishes catalog. I didn't order the carry case--just the set of 3 magnetic sheets. I will keep them in a folder. I got the shipment today, and it seems like they're going to be very handy and convenient.

this was me but I've been trying to change that so if you'd like to donate those nesties to a good home I'll take strays

Here's how I store my Nesties. The magnetic sheets are by Quikutz and are 4x12. I cut each one into three 4x4 square and they work perfectly in a zippered CD case. Of course, I don't have 50 of them, so this works!

Ok, I finally ran across this case in Hobby Lobby today. It's nice, small like I would want...but if you can get the GRAND nesties in it it would be very close. I would have to see it to believe it. I have three of those.

So I went with the idea of a 12x12 box and I am just putting magnetic strips on board. The thing is you can get more in that including the mats. I think they should have made it big enough for that.

I being really critical of storage this week, huh?
