Storage Tip for Rectangle Stitched Framelits



I am loving Stampin' Up!'s newest die set - Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  I decided to share how I store these dies.

  • Rectangle Stitched Framelits #148551
    • I numbered them with a fine tip Sharpie
      • Number 1 is the largest
  • Full Wide Stamp Case #127551
    • I use this larger size case to also hold my Large Letter Framelits
  • Magnetic Sheet
    • Home Depot vent covers
    • Cut to 7" x 5"
    • One small strip for the back
  • Cardboard backing 7" x 5"
  • Cardstock in various sizes
  • Small binder clips
  • Printed details on paper and cut size *

* I only measured the finished dies to the closest eighths.  Sixteenth inches are harder to count.

Please consider me when you select your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I provide measurements on all my projects for free.  If you enter the hostess code at the top right-hand side of my blog, my name comes up in your Shopping Cart.  The PDF file is free HERE.  If you download this, please consider placing a Stampin' Up! order with me using my Hostess Code. If you download, please consider leaving me a comment.
