Sheila here today----and I have to confess, I am an organization junkie. I find it almost as fun to organize my crafting supplies as I do to use them. It's true. The only problem is, I organize and reorganize so often, sometimes I forget where I've put things...so when I find a system that sticks for a little while, I figure it might be a good one to share. Today, I wanted to show you how I store my clear stamps. I don't have a TON of clear stamps, so this works well for me. And, I always have it handy on my desk, so I am more encouraged to use my stamps.
First, grab a regular three ring binder. I had one laying around...love it when I can use stuff I already have. Cut the front cover completely off with your craft knife (I used my daughter's binder for demonstration purposes, but for this project, you want at least a two inch binder).
Then, find a plate holder/easel. I purchased this from Michael's. I think I paid $7 for it.
I don't really have pictures for this next part, but I think it is pretty easy to get. You need some transparencies (available at Walmart or Office Depot---however, my school was throwing away a bunch because they no longer worked in the copier---I snagged two full boxes!) Put the transparency on top of a piece of cardstock, whatever color you wish, and punch them together in a three hold punch.
Then, put your clear stamps on the transparency. They stick perfectly. The cardstock is so that you can attach the insert that came with the stamps that shows the images.
Here is how mine looks:
I am able to put the manufacturer of the stamp right with it for my own reference.
Here's a shot below of some stamps that I didn't have an insert for---so I just stamped the images myself on the cardstock!
