Recycle your Clear Stamps Packaging.

This is just a little tip to share with you all today. What did you normally do with the packaging of your clear stamps? Do you still store your clear stamps in them? Have you organized your clear stamps in cd cases or in clear stamps storage file?
I've actually organized all my clear stamps in cd cases. I have so many of these pre-printed plastics of the stamp images after moving all my clear stamps into cd cases. So would you throw it away? Please don't! They're the best mini overlays that you can't find anywhere else. Even if you use you clear stamps to stamp the images onto transparencies or plastics, the images won't be as perfect as these. You can cut them out, colour them with alcohol ink, paint them using acrylic paint and even inked them using solvent ink. There are endless possibilities in using them. So make sure you don't throw them away and start using them in your projects. I've actually used some of them in a project of mine which I will share in a day or two.

Great idea, I hadn't thought of that! I don't have a very big collection so far (only one set really). But I have a feeling it will be growing, because I'm getting more and more addicted to stamps and ink :)!
