Hello Crafty Bloggers!
Today's tip offers a way to help you store your acrylic stamps.
If you like using the empty CD or DVD case method you may like this idea too.
I use the CD case method myself but one day I ran out of them & had my mind set to find a way to store my newest acrylic stamps. It was too late for me to get out to buy some & I was too impatient to wait. So...
I racked my brain thinking of a possible temporary solution that would be comparable to the CD method, compact & simple.
Guess what? I found a way.
I had some mini acrylic albums handy & so I thought I would give them a try.
I was able to store my stamps on them perfectly. One thing that I figured I wouldn't do though was store any on the front cover because I did not want them to be coaxed off when handling or storing the stamps.
I used the accompanying sheet which shows the name of the stamp set & has all the images printed on them as my cover. I adhered it on with removable adhesive.
I skipped a page so that my stamps would not want to stick to each other.
I only needed the equivalent of 2 pages. One acrylic mini album came with 6 individual pages (acrylic sheets).
I am not sure if I am going to leave them this way since I do like everything to be uniformed & orderly, (can we say OCD?) but I do like that the system works and it is orderly.
I have a little binder ring keeping them together but quite honestly I could probably store the set standing upright in a box & use index labels & it would be perfectly fine. Regardless, this is a method that works, looks neat, takes up a small footprint of space and is adaptable to craft spaces of all kinds.
So if you are in a pinch or just looking for a new way to store your acrylic stamps maybe this will work for you.
I was looking for my camera to take a picture but it's in Canada...go figure.
I have been looking for that thing for a few days now. My cousin called to let me know that I left it @ her house during my recent visit.
I hope you can picture in your head.
Hope this was insightful.
Have a great week everyone.
