Nesties are now nestled

A couple of weeks ago I was in the fortunate position of being able to help a friend out a demo. This is where I first saw how she stored her Nesties which were in plastic CD cases. I was pretty impressed and took the idea home with me. Instead of plastic cases though, I decided I could make some simple CD holders out of card and insert magnetic paper inside to hold the dies in place. Having them organised in such a fashion brought home to me how many I actually own. Eeek. Daren't work out what that cost is and here I am saving pennies with their storage haha. Anyway, rather than just plain envelopes, I added patterned paper to spruce them up, front and back and finally used the dies to cut out a shape which I could stick to the outside instead of a label, to indicate which shapes lie inside.

Fab idea Paul - like the way you've stuck the nestie shapes on the folder for easy identification.
