Amy's Die Storage

Happy Saturday!

Hope you are enjoying a beautiful weekend! I want to share a fabbie and clever project done by Amy. She made a Prickley Pear die storage from scratch using light weigh chipboard, magnetic tape and her Cinch Binder.


The front is decorated with some beautiful Basic Grey paper and the titlework is done with the Scalloped Circle Die and cut outs from some Prickley Pear packaging. Soooo clever! :)


And here is the inside! Everything on it's place!

How do you store your dies?

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend!
