Quickutz Magnetic Storage Solution

Ok, so the Quickutz Magnetic Binders and Magnetic Refill Pages seem to be sold out everywhere. My dies were getting out of control so I came up with an inexpensive solution to 'hold me over' but I think I'm going to keep them this way. I had a few of the old 4x4 Library storage binders sitting around empty (because I changed my 4x4 storage) so I decided to put them to use. I picked up a package of Quickutz adhesive backed Magnetic media which comes in 4x12 strips and is cheap! I simply cut it inoto 4x4 squares (actually trimmed the width just shy of 4" so it would slide in and out easily). You just pull out the 'magnetic card' and it is flexible so bending back allows you to remove the die very easily. This is great for storing Spellbinders Nestabilities too. Here are a few pics:

This turned out way better than I expected and allowed me to free up a Magnetic Binder for fonts. Thanks for looking!

I found this post as I was searching in vain for the Quickutz magnetic folders. I'm definitely borrowing this idea. Thank you!!
