Today I’m going to share with you how I store my die cuts and ephemera. When they come in a pack, I keep them with the collection until I’m finished with them. Then, if there are any left over at the end of the kit/collection, I separate them by color and store them in these little photo boxes by Iris.
I considered using storage pockets for my die cuts and ephemera but it was a mess! They didn’t close securely enough and kept falling out of the pockets, not to mention the pockets themselves falling over. The photo boxes by Iris are sturdy, close securely and are easy to store. I love them.
This is one of the little photo boxes, this one holds my blue die cuts. You get the idea. 🙂
Here is the inside of the case filled with photo boxes:
As you can see from the photo, each photo box is labeled by color. I have one for multi-colored items as well as one for cork die cuts, wood veneer die cuts, etc. Any kind of die cut that I either make or buy goes in one of the photo boxes. When I’m working on a page I just grab the boxes in the colors I’m working with and take them with me. It’s great for scrapping at home or when you are going to a friend’s house or a crop.
This is a photo of the entire case (closed and full)
This is what the Iris Photo Box Case looks like in the store when you purchase it. You can get it at Michael’s with a coupon or when storage is on sale!
For those of you who have fewer die cuts, this Iris Photo Storage Box Small may be more your size: ( This is what I started out with)
I hope this helps with your die cut/ephemera storage. If you have any questions, please leave a comment or contact me and I’ll get back to you asap.
