Cling Stamp Storage Idea

I love the new Cling Stamps by Stampin' Up!.  Your stamps will now stay on your clear blocks.

I used to save the left over rubber in the case so it was easy to make sure I had returned all the stamps to the case.  Doesn't work for the new stamps. I needed an easy way to insure that I placed all the stamps back.  I scanned the front of the Stampin' Up! image sheet and flipped the picture so I could insert it into the back of the case.  Added my stamps, and WOW I'm a genius!



Some computer skills are necessary.  The step by step picture tutorial can be downloaded HERE.

If the sizes vary greatly, small adjustments are needed for the black and patterned paper.
