Storage Ideas???

I worked last night.
I came home, took a Tylenol PM and 'hit the rack' (flashback from those older Navy days-lol). WHY did I wake up almost EVERY hour?? Beats me but FINALLY at about 1:00pm I decided to just get up for a bit. I thought maybe if I did SOMETHING for a little while I'd get tired and be ready to lay back down again for a few hours before I have to go back tonight. Anyways, what did I choose to do?? Why get online of course and blog surf for a bit.
One of my first stops was to Beate's blog (click here) . Her latest post was about the Nestabilities. I shared a few posts back or so how Joe surprised me with the set.
I LOVE them!!!
I've been trying to decide how to store them and was thinking I'd just store them in CD cases with magnetic sheets behind them UNTIL I read about how Beate stores hers. She uses a CD holder. You know, one of the smaller types. Well, I just so happen to have one that will work PERFECTLY. I'm SO excited now to try this. Now all I need to pick up is some magnetic strip. Not only will they all be together, should I decide to take them to a friends house or something but they'll be EASILY transportable too!! AND take up minimal space!! WOOHOO! Thanks Beate for the AWESOME idea!
Now, while we're on the topic of STORAGE........
I asked Beate and now I'm putting it out there for all of you---
How do you store your Cuttlebug Embossing Folders??
I don't know about YOU but I know my embossing folders are multiplying like RABBITS and I'd LOVE a great space saving idea or two for THEIR storage.
I'll tell you what.......
I'll even offer up some blog candy.
I'll get a few things together, you all start leaving those GREAT ideas I KNOW you have and lets say on SUNDAY at 5:00pm I'll have one of the kids pick a name for that blog candy.
Let the ideas begin!!

I altered a cute find from Michaels $1 area. It is a little recipe box- it already came with tabbed dividers that I used as a template to divide them up. I don't have a picture but I will take one soon. It is the perfect size and is added artwork in the craft room!!

I had a plastic box with a hinged lid that I used. I use a rubber band to hold the little ones together and the background embossing folders fit in there nicely. Another person I know uses a pencil box to hold hers!

I plan to put mine in baskets out on my cutting systems counter top. When I accumulate more I think I will use dividers and put them in plastic crate-like containers on my shelves.
