Edgelits & Framelits Storage

I'm in the middle of making a card, but I received an email through one of my Yahoo Groups about storing Edgelits and Framelits. The lady who sent the email stores hers in the plastic stamp cases. That's a wonderful idea, but I like to utilize the pouch they came in. Here's what I've been using for my metal dies. You go to a hardware store such as Lowe's or Home Depot and buy a package of Magnetic Vent Covers. They come three to a package. I cut mine into 5" X 6" pieces to fit into the original vinyl package that the dies came in from Stampin' Up! You can get nine of these pieces from one package, so we can have lots more Framelits and Edgelits in the future! Anyway, the metal dies stick to the magnetic pieces. You could still use the stamp cases if you want (I'm not sure about the cutting size for those), but I sure like the vinyl pouch that we get from SU! when we order the dies. It's much thinner for easier storage. You will have three 2" X 5" pieces of the magnetic sheets left over. These would be good for making lightweight refrigerator magnets or something like that. Thanks for stopping by!!
