Nestabilities Storage Solution



Here is a great storage idea for Spellbinder Nestabilities Dies! It is from IKEA and originally created to hold knives in a kitchen. I immediately recognized the possibility of nesties right on these magnetic metal strips. They were easy to install. I use Hercules Hooks because they happen to be my favorite wall-hanging tool. You can assemble horizontally or vertically like I have. I placed two magnetic strips near by 'cuttlebug table,' then a couple in the closet for dies I do not use as often. I wanted to give you an idea of how compact these are. They are only $8.99 at IKEA and are called "Grundtal." They are in the kitchen organization section in the store. This makes selecting your die and storing it so much easier, plus, it actually looks good!

What do you think?

This is an amazing idea. Your craft space is awsome. My space is actually a closet so I truly appreciate ideas that get things off of shelves or my table. TFS

This is the BEST storage idea for nesties I have ever seen. Wow.

Mine are the Beate way. In travel CD zippered case tucked in a drawer. I love hiding things but unfortunately out of sight is out of mind. Can I come over to play??

My closest Ikea is down in Orlando, prolly a good thing, eh? I already need another towel rack to put more of my punches on and now see that I need a few knife racks for my nesties. Thanks for sharing such a cool idea!
