I use a lot of die cuts, and most of the time, I mass produce a bunch of tags or circles or frames in one sitting to save myself the hassle of having to die cut a basic shape every time I want to do a project. I originally stored all of my die cuts in a plastic ziplock bag, but it was getting too hard to find what I needed.
I developed this system to store my die cut tags. I have an Avery Elle tag die set that I use all the time to cut the tags I use when packaging my gift sets. Each tag has a different description of what's in each set, and I needed a way to keep them separated by color and in their own categories. I only use Kraft/white tags for my packaging, so the solution I came up with was perfect!
I began by sliding a 4x6 piece of colored cardstock (Bazzill's Navajo) into an equally sized cellophane sleeve/treat bag. The cellophane bag I am using is thick, which is perfect, and is the Artist's Loft/Michael's Brand. I found them in the bakery section of the store! I used my label maker to create a label for the top of the cardstock, and I also labeled these Clip Rite Binder Clip Tabs with the contents of the sleeve. I then could slide my kraft and white cardstock tags in side my side.
I love the way it turned out! As you can see in the first photo, I am storing them in glass bowl on top of my work space for easy access.
