It's all about the Dies

I've been storing my dies on pages of magnetic strips.  I'm thinking of keeping my small dies on these, but have changed storing my larger dies and stencils now.

First I bought some art boards (painted wooden pieces of art bought at Big Lots cheap)

I had in mind covering the boards with a magnetic sheet (see below)
Then I put dies on one board

 Then I made another board for more dies.

I hung the two boards up after moving my shelving unit from that wall to the side.

 Better photos below of two boards.

The third board I made is on the right side below with all my Dreamweaver Stencils.  If you use something like this for your Dreamweaver Stencils, be sure to take the stencil off without bending the stencil.  Think of it having one side as a hinge.  Take it off as you would after stenciling with embossing paste.  

Remember our great sponsor Dreamweaver Stencils is giving away four sets of Stencils each week on this the Die Cut DIvas' blog.  I will announce the first winner on Tuesday.  
Thankyou, Dreamweaver Stencils

What a clever idea for storing dies and metal stencils! I never quite know how to store mine so they are handy and so I know what I have.
