Wonderful Ways

By Irene Rhodes

What a wonderful way to keep organized! I find the die totes from Stamp-n-Storage to be well made and very versatile. I am amazed of how many places I can use the totes. They are perfect for my upper cabinets, lower drawers, bookshelves and counter. I could have used the large totes in my bottom drawers because I had more room. The small totes would have worked well for my small bookcase or on the counter, but I like having all of my favorite tools and supplies close at hand.

Since I am constantly reorganizing, I chose the medium die totes. My upper cabinets are 11 inches deep; the totes will fit in all of my drawers and also on several shelves in my craft space. I love that I can customize them to match my décor and add bookplates or labels to the front to keep organized. I appreciate that the embossing folder totes look the same but are smaller. I can mix and match to fit in my craft space. On one of my shelves I can fit 2 die totes and still have room for one embossing folder tote.

My next step was to figure out what I could use them for, my dies of course, but what else? I love keeping my brands of craft supplies together. The die totes are perfect for this. I used two totes for my clear stamps. The shape of the tote makes is perfect for flipping through to find the stamp set that I need. I used another tote for my matching dies for the same company, thus keeping the brand together. I found I can also use them for my texture plates. The texture plates are wider and much heavier than an embossing folder. Since the totes are strong, they work well.

The magnetic cards are a great way to have quick access to my dies. The two sizes of magnet cards accommodate most of my dies. The magnets are strong and hold the dies very well. No more losing your smaller dies through their packaging. You can organize each magnetic card by set, brand or category. I do have a few bigger dies; I can easily stack them behind the magnetic cards and keep them all together.

To get your creative juices flowing, other ideas that I had for these totes include:

Texture plates or embossing plates

6x6 paper pads

Clear rubber stamps in their packaging

Large 6x6 background stamps

Larger Sizzix-type dies
