What do you do with your food processor blades?

Yeah, that pretty much says it. In my kitchen, the primary chopping blade - the one I use most often - lives inside the processor itself. But the thing came with at least three other attachments that I can think of, which I very rarely use, and I have yet to find a suitable storage solution for those. They're too sharp to have loose in a drawer or cupboard. I hate to admit it, but I've actually been keeping them in the molded styrofoam packaging they came in, and then on top of a cabinet. The whole setup is ugly, completely out of my 5'6" reach (possibly why I don't use them?) and a colossal waste of space.

I'm sure I'm missing an obvious solution. I've thought about putting them in a lower cupboard in some sort of plastic bin with a lid, but I have yet to find one that's the right size or shape. Anybody have any suggestions that I can be embarrassed for not thinking of myself? TIA!
