How I store my small image plates..

Hi Lovely Ladies!

Today, I will show you how I store my image plates.

How it was stored before: When I only had the first set of image plates from Bundle Monster and 3 from Konad (I don't buy from Konad anymore it's too expensive lol). I had them stacked together wrapped in plastic and inside a small make up bag.

Why I changed it: Well, it was a pain in the butt to take them out and put them back in and sometimes my plastic will be ripped on the side (Old BM plates have sharp edges)  keeping it like that is just waiting for an accident to happen lol. Another reason was if you stack them together and you are looking for the plate you want -- you can get the image plates ruined because again BM edges were sharp. I am careful with my things and I don't want my plates scratched lol.

How I store it now: After I received my second Bundle Monster set I decided I needed to change how I was storing it because even if they had that blue plastic cover - I wouldn't keep it forever like that. Sooner or later I have to take the film out and use the plate. So, I was putting down stock at my work place one day and saw these clear plastic card holders. It was in the clearance section and I got it for 1.05 I believe? LOL.Here is a picture:

Isn't it just a perfect fit? I took those card holders and put them in a binder that I used to use for school.

However, this is not as effective as I thought it would be. Yeah, I know my plates are safe..but they slide around and the top is basically open and all of them will fall out if you hold the binder upside down. Now I am just thinking of what I will do with the opening.. maybe i will put a tape to cover it? IDK lol.

Another pic:

Any suggestions on how to keep the top somewhat closed?

How do you guys store your image plates?? let me know on the comments section below :)

** my XL image plate swatches post is postponed -- still working on the video, I am trying to put music at least LOL.


  1. i store my plates the same way =))) I also have bigger card holders 9x9 for my 7 inch plates =)


  2. @Sarahlouise1986 did you put any cover to prevent them from falling out of the card holder? I only have BM sets lol and 2 XL plates -- I do hope to get more plates in the future :)

  3. I use a small card holder to store my plates is much easier to choose the designs like this.

  4. @Beautyshadesthats great -- it is wayyy easier LOL!
