Look what I just made...

A storage folder for our Nestabilities!! I've been meaning to get around to making this project for ages, but you know what its like, there's just not enough time in the day! anyway today I managed to get all my household chores done very quickly so I squeezed in a bit of playtime...

The folder has 6 double sided 6"x6" mountboard pages, each covered with patterned paper & a magnetic tape strip stick down the middle (I got the magnetic strip on Ebay-make sure you get the extra strong stuff, it holds them nice & firm) I made the outer mountboard covers seperately & then bound the whole thing together with strong ribbon. It works perfectly & is able to hold 12 sets of Nesties - We only have 4 at the moment :( ...I think a little shopping spree is needed!!! xxx

Wow! What a fab idea, I have just recently purchase a load of these through my aunt in america and have been wondering how to store them. Hope you don't mind if I use your idea it's just brilliant. x

Oh wow, great idea - looks really impressive. Mine are still in their original plastic cases so maybe one day, I'll case yours if you don't mind :)

What a great idea (as mine keep falling out of their plastic containers) - maybe you can show us how to make them, as 1 of your classes !!!

Such an amazing idea Clair - my nesties are shoved in a tin and I'd love to make something as lovely as this to keep them in. THanks for the inspiration! Kate xx

I keep mine in CD cases with magnetic tape but this is SO much nicer! Thank you for sharing this idea.

Great idea! I haven't used my nesties for ages as they are stored in the original cases in the back of a cupboard, may have to dig them out and have a go at making one of these.
