Graphic 45 Botanicabella Die Storage Binder Box

Hi, been a little while since I posted. I've been doing a couple of projects which are destined for peoples birthdays, so I can't post them yet. And then my dad died, so not really felt like sharing much. But I have finally got around to making something for myself, for a change
I can't take the full credit for this, I got the idea from Kona Raven, thanks Kona.
I needed something to store my dies in, mine were just sitting in the bottom of a drawer. I saw Kona's post on facebook and adapted it to suit.
It basically looks like a boxed mini album. I added a leather strap with an eyelet and a Tim Holtz buckle. I also covered the spine with brown leather as I wanted it to be strong and flexible, my dies get quite a bit of use.
The paper collection I've used is Graphic 45's Botanicabella, decorated with bits and pieces from my stash. I didn't want it too fussy on the outside as it needs to be functional
The papers were absolutely GORGEOUS, and as you can see, the back is not embellished at all
Inside the front cover (top?) is a pocket for storing my stencils
The box/binder actually measures 8" x 9" x 4", so there's quite a lot of room in it

I bought a pack of A5 punched pockets and 10 x A4 magnetic sheets. Then I cut some mount board to 8" x 5¾", then went round the edges with an alcohol pen, and the magnetic sheets to 7" x 4¾", Kona used self adhesive magnetic strips but I found them too bulky. I stuck the magnetic sheets to the centre of the mount board, then stuck design paper, round the edges, on top.

I did the same both sides of the mount card and voila! 

Thank you for looking, hope to see you again soon
