As I am a crafter, I decided to make my own Die Pockets. I purchase a lot of dies and the system I was using before this, was getting to messy for me. I felt unorganized and was getting frustrated as I had a lot of dies in the one envelope. I decide that something need to be changed, and thought about making my own die pockets. This is a cheap, economical way of storing the dies. I researched the cost of die pockets, and will shipping and posting it would cost anywhere from $15 for 50 die pockets. That’s 30 cents a pocket? I can make 60 pockets for as little as 13 cents a pocket. The only difference is that my pockets don’t have a flap. At the end of the day, I’m only storing dies, not the crown jewels.
Templates of the four size envelopes I create are:-
List of Supplies: –
- Pack of 10 Document Holders for A4 documents (22cm x 31cm)
- Duct tape (I used Silver 48mm x 30m)
- Craft mat (I used Fiskars self healing mat)
- Bladed knife
- Pick the size envelope that you want to make
- Make the first cut, using the cutting tool that you are comfortable using. Please use the key for the first cut
- Using your duct tape, join the sides together
- Cut the second cut line using the key as a guide
- Using the duct tape, join the sides together
- You should end up with 3 sides joined either with duct tape or with the natural document join.
