I had a few questions about my die organization, so I thought I would clarify a few things here.
- I use a Tonic trimmer to cut the magnet sheets and chipboard. It takes a bit of muscle if the magnet sheets and chipboard are adhered together. I recommend making 4 x 6 cuts of magnet sheets and chipboard separately prior to adhering them together.
- The magnet sheets I use are from Oriental Trading and are linked in the original post. All other supplies are linked there too!
- To make each page durable, I cut two 4 x 6 magnet sheets and one 4 x 6 chipboard sheet. Then, I adhere them together with a magnet sheet on each side of the chipnboard. In the photos, I used black chipboard, so it may look like a thick magnet sheet, but it is the sandwich of sheets as described above. The chipboard sandwiched between two magnet sheets makes it sturdy and prevents the dies from falling off easily.
- The blue index guides are separate and only used as a divider between each page. Nothing is adhered to the index guide, except the label on the tabs.
*Edited to add: I posted a video of the die organization here.
I hope you all had a great weekend. Take care.
