using leftover die cuts

What is a girl do to with all the die cuts leftover from the Christmas cards that she never made? Asking for a friend.

Ok, you caught me. I'm totally asking for myself because I have this...
It's a beautiful stack of watercolored backgrounds and die cut cars (and actually there are more die cuts but I was too embarrassed to show you).

I had intended to make loads of these cards for Christmas...
And as I mentioned, that didn't happen so...
What do you think about sending love in those cute little cars?
And please tell me, what do you do with your leftover die cuts? And where & how to you store them?

Hugs!
Carly

I have a photo album with pocket pages in it and store my extra diecuts in that. It allows for visibility and keeps everything flat.

Love lOve lOve these cards. And there will be Christmas again this yr, I think. You're getting a great head start on them! :)

Oh, and I've found the best way for me to USE previously cut die cuts, is to store them in the pouch along with the dies/stamps themselves. In this case, I would probably store the red cars in a tiny sandwich baggie and then tuck it into the plastic sizzle pouch along with the dies. Then, When I go to use that die, I can easily see if one of the pre-cutouts will work with the new project. :)
