If you haven’t quite figured out how to organize your magic the gathering tokens, dice, or other accessories yet and don’t feel like spending much on a dice bag or more deck boxes, I’ve got you covered! This budget solution is super straightforward—no need to be craft savvy.
What you’ll need
1. Scissors - Or anything that can cut a straight line through plastic or cardboard
2. Pencil - Or any writing utensil that works on plastic
3. Tape - I use transparent tape, but any type of tape that can adhere to plastic will do the job
4. Toploader - If you’ve ever bought a card online, chances are you have a toploader. If not, you can use anything—an actual magic card, or any type of cardboard/thin plastic will suffice
5. Sliding Pencil Case - Chances are you have one of these lying around somewhere, if not, you can grab one from Staples or any office supply store for a few dollars or on Amazon here for a bit more than retail price
Step 1 - Create a divider
Begin by cutting your toploader (or material of choice) down to the width and height of your pencil case.
Since each pencil case varies in size, you’ll have to do the measurements or eyeball it properly before you begin cutting.
Step 2 - Mark where you’ll place divider
Next, we’ll need to mark where to place the divider. Use a magic card for reference by placing it in the case and marking a bit above the card with your writing utensil.
Now you'll know exactly where to adhere the divider
Step 3 - Tape the divider into place
Begin by applying a piece of tape parallel with the divider
Align divider with markings, then adhere it in place. Apply tape to the reverse side of the divider so both sides are taped in place.
Finally, we’ll need to tape each corner in place. Start by preparing 4 squares of tape.
Apply tape to all 4 corners of the divider.
And you're finished!
Now you can store your mtg tokens and dice all in one super compact case. Hope this tutorial helped! Oh and don't forget to check out my MTG t-shirts/playmats if you haven't already =)
