Nestabilities Storage Idea

Hello friends! Have you noticed all the sales this month on storage items? I love finding neat little containers or bins to store my craft supplies. Recently, I sold all my chunky Marvy punches on ebay. They take up way too much space & I fell in love with Nestabilities. Nestabilities are cheaper, take up less space, multi-purpose (cut, emboss, stencil), and have a bigger variety of sizes. What's not to love? They are compatible with most die cutting machines - Sizzix, Cuttlebug, QuicKutz, etc. Click here for a compatibity chart and here for an overview on Nestabilities from the manufacturer, Spellbinders.

I have been building up a collection of Nestabilities without paying full price! Want to know my source? Cut at Home! When you visit their website, sign up to be a Cut at Home VIP. They will send you a coupon every month for 40% off one item. I've been using mine on the Nestabilities. It's a great way to start collecting them.
Once you get them, how do you store them? Simple! I bought at Wal-Mart a pack of 10 CD cases for under $5. At my local craft store, I purchased a magnetic sheet. I cut out a little less than 5x5 inch piece, put it in the CD case under the tabs, and then added the Nestabilities. Works like a charm!

It is so easy to keep them all together and handy. I keep mine in a basket next to my Big Shot, but they could easily be stored in a drawer too.

Let me know if you have any questions about Nestabilities. I'd love to help you out!

I hope the rest of your week is a great one! Thank you for stopping by!

Great Idea! I'm going to have to do this for mine too! Right now I just have them stored in a box with the cardboard thing they came attached to and they are always falling off! Thanks for posting your idea!
