we r memory keepers thin metal die storage binder

Thin metal cutting die storage is a common challenge for scrapbookers, cardmakers, and paper crafters. Dies come in all sizes and shapes, which makes it hard to find an ideal method of organization. Plus it's hard to come by containers that fit large 6x12 inch template dies. Recently, We R Memory Keepers released a Die Storage Binder with Die Storage Pouches that has become my new favorite storage option for my thin dies.


This 6x12 ring binder has a plain kraft cover with a metal book plate label on the spine. You can leave the cover as is, or you can decorate it with paint, stamps, paper, or anything else you can come up with. (I personally like the kraft color, so I'm leaving mine undecorated.)


The new dies that We R is releasing come in clear plastic zipper storage pouches that vary in size, though each one has holes that are made to fit into the 3-ring storage binder perfectly.



Each zipper pouch (sold with dies or without) has a magnetic sheet inside that holds your dies in place so you can see all of the dies in the pouch clearly and easily.


The binder comes with three 6x12 pouches, plus you can purchase packs of three separately. I'm able to fit all of my thin metal dies into these pouches--border dies, punch dies, template dies, shape dies.


I like to include the die assembly instructions behind the magnetic sheet in my pouches.



These storage binders have a 1.5" capacity which means I'm able to fit 12 storage pouches into mine comfortably. That holds a ton of dies! Of course, I have a bit of an obsession, so I'll be needing one more of these. Yep. It's a little crazy in my die drawer.

I like the concept, however, when full it is very heavy. I have one but will not be purchasing another one.
