How to Organize All Your Dies

This is how I organize all my DIES... I hope you can find some inspiration…

Just remember that what works for one person not necessarily works for another...for now this works just fine for me...all depends on your taste, way of working and what "look" you want to achieve for your room, so adapt the ideas to your style!

On my PINTEREST GALLERY you will have lots and lots of photo/inspiration to follow as well...

First,  I set up in my room an specific place for My Die Cutting Area...
and this is how it looks...Wide view


Right angle



- LEFT section: white plastic box (from IKEA) for all my Memory Box dies, they are in the "open" because these are the dies that I work with the most right now...they are all organized by subjects: borders, birds, animals etc...


- MIDDLE section:  "Cuttlebug" with the recipes of the sandwiches made with  P-Touch label maker


- RIGHT section: a wood office storage unit

On the side  I "magnetized" this surface to have handy the dies when cutting there

SEE POST HERE :  on Tip of the Week... 101 on working with Intricate Dies!


On the top:  my P-touch , die tools, on the clear plastic bin the CB* plates,  on the side standing the extra large die cutting plates (Sizziz, SU)...


these are some of the tools that I keep in this wood unit,  handy to be used along with the dies when die cutting...

On the other side, Right,  of this unit I have some binders (see 1st picture) with  
My "Papertrey Ink (PTI)" and "MY Favorite Things (MFT)"   dies...I covered some cardboard with designer paper and magnetic sheets...and I have them inside these plastic binders...


Then I place all my other dies in different places in the room...

My Spellbinders are kept in their original packaging on a side wall, behind my door, I added magnetic sheets and  hang them from the wall


My small Cuttlebug dies and embossing folders are stored in these "clear vinyl small pocket bags" found at the dollar store. These are hang on the back of my door from a "over the door towel bar"


And below this,  My Tim Holtz and SU dies are put away in "clear vinyl over the door shoe organizer pocket bags"


On top of my desk I keep this "Photo Holder" covered with a magnetic sheet and white "Con-Tact" paper to keep away the  small dies that I am using on a particular project...otherwise I will lose them...


Ok this is it!...I hope you got one or two ideas for your room...

  4. We both had similar ideas of posting our die-cut storage methods. LOL. I'm glad you mentioned that in your comment. Didn't have the chance to visit until now, but I'm not TOO late to the scene.

    You are so innovative. I love the idea of a place to keep those dies you're working with at the moment. Now I'll have to get more magnetic sheets, right? Maybe it'll keep my money from slipping from my fingers into dies (I have to have), stamps (I have to have) or any other item (I have to have). Well, maybe it won't.

    Take care and have a Great Mother's Day!

    1. I place an adhesive magnetic sheet (sold at michael's, brown color) onto a cardboard, both sides; then I cover the whole "sheet/cardboard" with white contact paper.

  7. Wow! What an awesome stash of dies! Woohoo! I love the way you have them organized! I have mine on magnetic sheets (or in the paper envelopes in the case of Memory Box) in file folders in my desk drawer, filed by subject. I keep the original inserts too so I always know what die and manufacturer. My Spellbinders are also on magnetic sheets, but in a small plastic tote. I don't have nearly the number of dies you have but maybe one day! Thank you for sharing your organizational ideas!
