Stamp & Die Set Storage

Hello everyone! As you may have noticed, more and more stamp companies are coming out with coordinating stamp and die sets lately. So, today, I want to share how I store these coordinating sets.

Materials needed:
- any label maker (I use the Brother P-touch 1880 label maker)

Step 1 - Fold the flap of the pocket down. There is already a crease line, which I find very helpful!

Step 2 - Peel the hook & loop tabs (keeping them together) off the backing sheet. Place both the hook & loop tabs on the flap of the pocket. *Tip - use a cutting mat or ruler to help find the center of the flap before placing the hook & loop tabs.

Step 3 - Peel the backing sheet off the hook & loop tabs and carefully fold the flap of the pocket down/close.

Now when you open the pocket flap again you will have a hook tab on one side and the loop tab on the other. Your pocket will now close securely and prevent your small dies from falling out.

Step 4 (optional) - Use your label maker to make a label for the stamp and die set. I like to include the number of dies in each set so I can keep count and lessen the chance of losing my dies.

Step 5 - Fill your pocket with the stamp and die set.

Step 6 - Close the flap and stick the label on. I like to put the label on the flap so I can see it easily. But of course you can put the label anywhere you like. =)

Hope you found this tutorial helpful and have fun organizing your stamp and die sets!!

Thanks for visiting,
