Embossing Folder & Die Storage

Here are pictures of the Die and Embossing Folder storage I discussed in the previous post. I'm quite pleased with how well it functions and the box is pretty, which is a very big plus:) Since I just got my machine last week, I don't have very many dies, so the white box inside is keeping the folders from falling over. (I didn't want to buy 100 folders right now)
I started with plain old file folders, because you can cut them to the size you need to fit your box.

I LOVE pretty boxes and I'm always looking at them in TJ Maxx, Michaels and Joanns (when I get into the city). I got this one in TJ Maxx on sale for $7.00. The inside is covered in fabric as well and the top is even slightly padded.

I love having embossing and die cut materials all in one place, under a cover to keep out dust and look nice and neat.

Each letter-size file folder was cut down to 5 1/2" by 10" which fits inside my box. I got the file folders in Walmart. A package of 25 was around $3.00. All the embossing are in blue and red folders.

The dies are in teal and green folders. The Spellbinders' dies are on sheets of magnetic vent covers. Other dies like Sizzix, are simply placed in the folder. I have room for some extra cut out pieces, and a note about what sandwich to use in my Big Kicks.

  2. This is fantastic, Carole. I love how you have things color-coded. I have my embossing folders in a different container that I got from IKEA. I also love that you have some precut dies in the corresponding folder. Thanks for sharing. :)
