Here’s a video review of my new favorite way to store wafer thin dies, such as Spellbinders Nestabilities, Framelits and Quickcutz Dies. I used to keep them in a small 3 ring binder with magnetic pages, but these Lifestyle Crafts-QuickCutz Magnetic Storage Books are much sleeker and way more attractive. I was really surprised how many dies fit in one book!
I thought these magnetic folders were a brand new product, but I now think that may have been on the market for several years. I’m surprised I have not discovered them earlier, because they a truly an exceptional product.
I’ve looked at other options, such as the Artbin Spellbinders Tote which comes with just 3 small magnetic sheets (additional sheets can be purchased separately). The plastic Artbin Tote isn’t as attractive as the Lifestyle Crafts Storage Book, and I’ve read several reviews complaining that ArtBin sheets begin to curl and don’t hold the dies firmly. For this reason, I chose to order the Lifestyle Crafts Magnetic Storage Folders and I am completely happy with that decision. The magnetic storage books are impressively well-made and my wafer-thin dies cling securely to magnetic inner folder walls.
Final word on the Lifestyle Crafts Storage Books: I love them! A+
I would love to know your favorite storage solution for thin metal dies?
If you are interested in knowing the name of any of the die sets you see in the video, let me know in the comments and I’ll add those details.
