This is my second post today, Please scroll down for the first one!!
I know there are many of you out there who are looking for ways to store your stamps and to label them for easy identification. So, I thought I'd share with you on how I store my stamp kits.First I purchased these tins that you can find at All That Scraps. They are deep enough to hold an entire kit of stamps from either the Swiss Pixies, Sugarplums stamps or any CC Designs stamps.
Then I used a clear envelope that's the size of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", and added strong double sided tape to all 4 edges.
Next, adhere the plastic envelope to the top cover of the tin. Be sure to press down on all sides.
Here is the entire Halloween Kit from 2009, they all fit nicely. The lid does not touch the stamps so they don't get smashed.
The photo below is the finished product. What I did was create a card using a stamp from the set and slid the card in the plastic envelope for easy identification.
The fun thing I love about this is that you can create a card, and keep it in the plastic envelope until you get tired of it, OR if you need a card then you can use this one and create another and replace it.
Here is what the card looks like against the tin. It's not too high after adding some embellishments.
I then labelled the spine of the tin with the name and year of the kit. This way you can see what's in the kit if you have a bunch of them all lined up against each other.
Here's the card all completed. She is one of my favorite images from the set, this adorable image is Cow Emma.
I hope that you found this way of storing your stamps to be helpful.
Thanks for stopping by!!
