Many companies now make stamps that have matching die cuts. It is actually very nice to have the two; however, how do you store them. I have a storage system I love for my die cuts (click here to see that storage). And I also have a wonderful storage system for my stamps that I love (click here to see that storage and my index). I do not want to change my current storage but how should I merge the two? Let's look at my simple solution.

Putting it Together
Since I only have a few of these matching stamp and die sets, I decided to use one of my Univenture binders keep them stacked on my shelf with all of my other Univenture binders that contain my stamps. I have put a label on the side so I can grab these quickly when I want.
To store the stamps and dies, I put the stamps on one of the Gina K. binder pages. Then I cut a small strip of magnet for each die set. The adhesive on the back of the magnet was not strong enough to keep it down on the page so I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the magnetic piece. I then put my scrap piece of granite on top of the page until it dried. Then the magnet pieces were ready to hold the dies. Here is how a page looks:
On the back of each page, I used my labeler to put the name of the stamps and dies. This works perfectly for me, and now everything is kept together. I hope you find this helpful in some small way so that you can store your stamps and dies together!
