I have a set of retro trays that I got at a yard sale at least 20 years ago. There were 6 small trays…which probably had some other purpose originally. What it was, I have no idea. I’ve used them for all sorts of things. They have been perfect trinket trays and lotion holders. I love the color and the little gold edges add a lovely touch.
I have recently repurposed 2 of them for my crafty space. I attached a magnet strip and I have one on my craft table and one on my counter at my cutting station. I use the trays to hold my metal dies and die cuts as I’m working. Too many times I’ve had a die get misplaced only to turn up much later and then I can’t remember which set it went to.
Has this happened to you?
This little tray serves to corral my dies and die cuts and I can carry the tray with these materials to my table and work with them in one tidy spot. As soon as I pull a die off my die cutter, it goes onto the tray so I can keep track of it until I can put it away with the set it belongs with.
This system is working for me!
I have a video to share to show you all about it…it’s a very quick tip video!
I hope you find this helpful!
