Tuesday Tip: Thin Cut Die Organization

Welcome to my first Tuesday Tip! Creating Tuesday Tip videos has been on my heart for over a year, but I worried it wouldn’t be something you would enjoy. After receiving encouragement from a friend, I decided to start adding a few videos each month to help you in your craft space.

Today, I am going to share how I organize my Thin Cut dies. There are quite a few options for metal die storage. (you may have searched the rabbit hole of pinterest for them) Instead of giving you multiple options, I am just going to share what works for me in my craft space.

I choose to utilize the space that I have and create storage systems that travel well. Unpacking and repacking supplies when I go to crops needs to be simple and easy, which is why I chose to use binders for storing my metal dies.

These albums are three-ring Everyday Life albums with pocket memory protectors. The pockets are sized at 3″ x 4″, 4″ x 6″, and 8″ x 6″ – which fit most of my thin cut dies. All I need to do is slide the magnetic sheets into the pockets.

In my Tuesday Tip video, I share with you how I label these binders and store the dies in each of the pockets.

Some dies come with magnetic sheets that do not fit in the memory protector pockets, and some of my dies did not come with magnetic sheets. I have found magnetic vent covers that work perfectly for this occasion. I just cut the magnetic sheet down to the size of my pocket and add my dies to the sheet.

I hope that today’s Tuesday Tip inspired you to organize your craft space. As I plan future videos, I would love to know what you would like to learn. Feel free to comment below with your requests.

  1. great idea! Mine are currently in a shoebox, but I cut out a sample on card stock and put that in a binder in categories. What other categories of die cuts do you have? I have one for words, another for borders, and a huge one for leaves!
    I would love to have a Tuesday Tip video from you in the future!

    1. Thank you. I like your idea of a sample with the die!

      My categories are simple – shapes, words, borders, tags. I also have a binder for miscellaneous items- bugs, flowers, etc.

      What types of tips would you like to see?

  2. This is a fabulous tip. I have tons of dies but wanted to keep my CTMH dies easy to access….I think this just may be my solution. Thank you for sharing! Do you store your alphabet dies in a binder also? I am looking forward to your Tuesday Tips! I really enjoy your CDT videos!!! 🙂

    1. You are welcome! I am glad it helped. At this time, I don’t own any of the alphabet dies – I use my Cricut to cut letters. I am sure they would work great in an album. Let me know if you have any suggestions for future Tuesday Tips.

      1. If you could do Tuesday Tips on:
        How you sort and store your leftover paper packs/workshop kit packs.
        How you sort/store/resources for embellishment storage. I saw your CDT bust your stash layout video and, first of all I LOVE the layout!!!!.. I also really like your color containers of embellishments. I have years of packages of embellishments stuffed in Iris Drawers that I really need to use. If they are organized more efficiently like yours, I just might be able to use them more often. 🙂
        Thank you !

      2. If you could do for a future Tuesday Tip:
        How to sort and store used paper packs/workshop kit papers
        How to sort and store embellishments. I loved your color bins that you pulled in to your CDT/Love Your Stash video.

      3. Hi Trish! I have a few of those organizing tips here on my website. If you search “craft space” or “craft room organization” you will be able to see how I organize paper and my embellishments. I am also in the process of creating a craft room walk-through video to show how I store everything I have in my small space. I hope to have it finished by the end of the month.
