Nestabilities

Nestabilities by Spellbinders are all the rage, and deservedly so! These dies fit perfectly within one another. Each die is 1/4" larger than the die before it.

Imagine that you have 5 different size ovals, and each oval fits perfectly within the next larger size, layering into a beautiful stack of concentric ovals. Now imagine that the ovals are scalloped. Or imagine that the ovals are rectangles instead. Or imagine that instead of 5, you have 10 ovals. That's Nestabilities!

For most shapes, there are "large" and "small" versions, which complement one another. Alone, each of the small or large set is 1/4" larger than the die before, but when you combine the two sets, you get 1/8" size steps! The smallest of the "small" set fits within the smallest of the "large" set. All of the Nestabilities are available individually, but many are also available as part of a Nestabilities Set.

These dies also emboss! After you cut the shape, you can put your shape and the die back into the machine to make an embossed version.

The folks at Spellbinders have gone out of their way to make sure their dies are compatible with other machines, not just their own. This video shows a Spellbinders die (not a Nestabilities die, though) used in the Cuttlebug (at the beginning); the QuicKutz Revolution (at 2:20); and the Sizzix original (at 3:48); the Big Kick (at 5:48) and the black and pink Big Shot (also at 5:48). Of course, the dies work with Spellbinder's own Wizard machine too.

Written instructions for various machines are also available:

We also have more dies from Spellbinders, including Shapeabilities, Poseabilities, and Borderabilties.
