If you love Thin Cuts and metal dies as much as I do, you have a plethora of them in your collection. You may often be searching for that specific Thin Cut you know you purchased but can’t seem to remember if you put it in a basket, a box, or under the pile of papers on your desk. Today, I am going to show you a few ways to organize those Thin Cuts so that you can find them for all of your future projects.
As many of you have seen on Instagram, we are in the process of building my new craft space, (so exciting) but along with this requires the need to go through what I have, admit that I am a hoarder, and organize the supplies I am moving to the new space. In honor of our Die-namite Discount sale this month (which I hope you are taking advantage of), I am going to show you a few ways that I am organizing and storing my Thin Cuts and metal dies for my future space.
Close to My Heart has some amazing Everyday Life™ Albums and Pocket Memory Protectors that are designed for creating mini-albums. I have found that these albums are also perfect for holding and storing Thin Cuts.
I was able to remove my Thin Cuts from the packaging and slide the magnetic backing right into the Everyday Life™ 4″ x 6″ Memory Protectors. I cut out the label from the packaging and adhered it to the back of the magnetic backing before placing it into the sleeve. They were a little tight at first, but the snugness keeps the Thin Cuts from falling out. To remove the Thin Cuts, you can either slide out the magnetic sheet, or use your Tweezers to reach for the ones you need.
Our Everyday Life™ Memory Protectors are available in a few other sizes as well, and they work perfectly for any other metal dies you have. You can even add category tabs as well as a label for the outside of the binder.
Acrylix® Organizer Method:
Close to My Heart has various plastic organizers as well as some Designer Travel pieces that are perfect for organizing our Thin Cuts + stamp set bundles.
Our Thin Cuts+stamp bundles are designed to allow you to stamp out an image then use a matching Thin Cut to cut out that image for your project. Our Large Organizer is the perfect size for storing up to forty(40) sets of these bundles.
You could also use our My Acrylix® Organizer for storing fewer sets. To help with your organization, Close to My Heart has created Tabbed Dividers that fit directly into both of these boxes allowing you to categorize your Thin Cuts+stamp bundles. You can choose to skip the binder method and keep all of your Thin Cuts in one central location by placing your single Thin Cuts into the 6″x6″ Plastic Paper & Stamp Envelopes. These envelopes can be placed into either of our plastic organizers and stored along with your bundles.
One of our newest organization additions is our Designer Travel Luggage. I love the fact that my Thin Cut Bundles as well as my stamp sets fit directly into the Designer Travel Stamp Case. This little case includes dividers that allow me to organize my supplies according to the projects I will be working on. If you have chosen to leave your Thin Cuts in their original packaging, our Designer Travel Tool Case is a great way to store them for travel.
Whether you have a small space or a large craft area, organization is the key to being productive. I hope that you take advantage of our Die-Namite Discount Sale throughout the month of March and that you have learned a few new ways to organize your metal dies. I can’t wait to see how you organize your Thin Cuts and metal dies!
