Today I want to share the system that I use to store the die cuts that are leftover when I am crafting with my Silhouette.
In order to use my scrapbook paper efficiently I will often cut more shapes than necessary if they are something that I can use for another project in the future.
Here is my solution for keeping my extra die cuts and scraps organized:
These cases can be purchased at Michael’s for around $3.00 each, but, if you live in Canada, you can find them for $1.00 in the frames section of Dollarama!
My photo cases are then stored inside another container that I repurposed. A few years ago I found this container on clearance at Lowe’s after Christmas so I bought two thinking they would be good for holding receipts, stickers etc.
My Office/Craft Room is bright blue. The red lid was ugly and clashed with everything. So, what did I do? Spray paint of course!
It was a happy discovery that twelve photo cases fit perfectly into the container.
The cases are designed to hold 4 x 6 photos which means they can store my smaller card bases as well as the die cuts that I use to embellish them (if I am making a set).
So now, when I want to make another adorable owl card (did you see the eyes looking at you in the storage case picture?), I have all the pieces ready to go in one place.
If you don’t have a die cut machine, these are still a great solution for storing other small items.
I also use them to hold smaller paint chips (what a surprise!), stickers, I turned one into a pencil case for supply teaching and they would also make a great mini-First Aid or sewing kit.
Photo storage cases . . . the possibilities are endless!
