I decided to take the advantage of the magnetic nature of the dies. I adhered printable magnetic sheets using Scotch restickable tabs to the inside of the doors of my cabinet. The magnetic sheets can be a little expensive but I had some credit from recycling ink cartridges at Staples to use towards the price. I have also heard you can use magnetic vent covers. They are slightly larger length wise and somewhat cheaper. They are available in most home improvement stores. Oh and I have also read some use glue dots to adhere the sheets. The nice thing about these sheets is you can attach them just about anywhere….outside of cabinet, wall, and even on your desk if you have the space and reach for these frequently. You can cut the magnetic sheets into strips. I decided not to do that because of opening and closing these doors I was afraid a strip would not hold the dies in place. However, strips on a stable wall would be fine. I have not labeled each individual die since I don’t have that many and basically know what is what. I intend to do an inventory sheet at some point. I will share that with you at a later date…along with more inventory sheets once I get everything organized.
Items needed for my thin metal die storage system

deets here. She also shows you a cute little cabinet she uses to store other dies in that same post.
Well that wraps up thin metal die storage. I do hope you have found this helpful and one of these systems will work in your space.
Thanks for stopping by. Stay tuned next Monday for another organizational post. If you missed any of the previous ones check out the "Mission Organization" tab at the top of my blog.
I gotta run. I have volunteered to help with Adore's v-day party at preschool. I have made a Bingo game to play. Hope it goes over well!
Have a great day!
