What is the best way to store embossing folders should I keep them in the packaging that came with them and still store them in a box or remove them from the packaging and store them in a box

I used to keep mine in small 3 ring binders in 6 x 8 page protectors. I ended up having to come up with a new storage option, as I have a real weakness for embossing folders. I now have them in a large box I purchased at Michaels in their decorative box section. It has a magnetic closure and I have over a hundred embossing folders in it so far, with plenty of room for more, much to my DH's chagrin...lol. I store them in alphabetical order by company. I label each folder with it's name and the name of the company, if it is not already on the folder. I use little circle or square labels for this. Whenever I buy a new folder, I emboss a paint chip with that folder, and put the name of the folder and the name of the company on the back of it with a label. I then put the paint chip on a spiral ring, again in alphabetical order by folder name and company. That way I can carry the ring with me when I am shopping to avoid purchasing doubles. At least, that is the plan....I don't always take it with me, which has gotten me in trouble before...lol! The paint chips also make it easy to flip through and find the folder I want to use on my project. I can see what the embossing looks like, and even dry fit it on my project to be sure it will work with the cuts and embellishments I have chosen. HTH. GG

I use the boxes that DH's shoes come in, the ones with the attached lid...

The A2's fit in the packages, but the 5X7's need to be taken out. And the border ones get all messy falling down to the bottom, and I want to keep my borders with their folders, so I may be looking for a new system. But the shoe boxes are free, and hold a LOT of folders! (Yes, I'm on my third shoebox...)
