Introduction: Magic the Gathering: Card Storage
After making it, I honestly can tell you it hasn't worked well for me. However, I'm posting this in the hopes that someone can set a suggestion to improve it. Tell me if you have any ideas!
Step 1: Gather Materials
You're going to need
Something as filler
A shoe box
Step 2: Filler
I wanted the cards to be close to the top. So I used some old deli meat containers to raise them up a bit.
Step 3: Floor
I then cut some cardboard to size to make the flooring. I had to cut an extra chunk as I didn't have a large enough piece, so I taped them together.
Step 4: Dividers
Mark out how many sections you will have. A card is about 2.5 inches across, so I made 5 2.5" sections, with two one inch sections on the sides. Probably will store colorless, lands, and multicolored cards there as the five sections will be for the five colors.
Cut out the dividers based upon the size of the shoebox. Tape them in. Check how well the cards will fit with a stack of them.
Step 5: Cards!
Put your cards in and any little tabs you want.
With how I'm sorting (by color, set [I'm just having all non standard legal that I own in one section], and then type [creature,instant,etc.]) I will need 100 tabs. Quite a large amount, but I'll be able to find them hopefully!
