Chipboard letters, like the Thickers, how do you store them??

I have a hard time getting them back into the original packaging. But if I can't get them back in, the letters keep falling off the paper they are on and I keep losing them.

Suggestions....

try keeping them in page protectors or zyplock bags that way if something falls off it will be in the bag not lost forever.

They're a nightmare, aren't they? I cut the sticky seal off the bottom of the packaging so it doesn't stick to the letters on their way back in. That helps.

Also some are worse for falling off the packaging than others. The bad ones, I cut pieces of clear acetate to fit in the package, and hold those over the back and front as I slide them into the package. I store them upright, upside-down and closely packed together to help stop the letters falling off.

I use a lot of ziplock bags for things like that. I have the galling ones for bigger packages too

Great ideas! I stick them into plastic shoeboxes and 12 x 12 plastic containers, and they are in their tight, but everytime I go through them, letters fall off.

Yesterday I opened a new pkg and letters started falling off just handling them!

I do have 8 1/2 x 11 page protectors that should work. The problem is, putting them into page protectors or ziplock bags will take up more room....

Everytime I buy something new, my rooms gets smaller!!
