Thin metal cutting die storage is a common challenge for scrapbookers, cardmakers, and paper crafters. Dies come in all sizes and shapes, which makes it hard to find an ideal method of organization. Plus it’s hard to come by containers that fit large 6×12 inch template dies. Recently, We R Memory Keepers released a Die Storage Binder with Die Storage Pouches that has become my new favorite storage option for my thin dies.
This 6×12 ring binder has a plain kraft cover with a metal book plate label on the spine. You can leave the cover as is, or you can decorate it with paint, stamps, paper, or anything else you can come up with. (I personally like the kraft color, so I’m leaving mine undecorated.)
The new dies that We R is releasing come in clear plastic zipper storage pouches that vary in size, though each one has holes that are made to fit into the 3-ring storage binder perfectly.
The binder comes with three 6×12 pouches, plus you can purchase packs of three separately. I’m able to fit all of my thin metal dies into these pouches–border dies, punch dies, template dies, shape dies.
These storage binders have a 1.5″ capacity which means I’m able to fit 12 storage pouches into mine comfortably. That holds a ton of dies! Of course, I have a bit of an obsession, so I’ll be needing one more of these. Yep. It’s a little crazy in my die drawer.
