Frugal storage tip for Unity RuB-Ah!

Sunday, July 26, 2009

So I've been busy the past few weeks trying to go thru my scrap stash and get rid things I just don't use and get organized. My stamps are a big issue as far as storing them so I've been following some storage suggestions on Splitcoast for Unity Rubber Cling stamps. After reading some info on prices of the 3 little monkeys I noticed that the stamped clinged well to simple 8 1/2 X 11 page protectors so I purchased three 2' binders for 3.50 at Walmart as well as some hard plastic page dividers for 2.39 and here's what I came up with.

Here they are on the page protecter. I filled the sheet protector with some heavy white cardstock so when I turn the pages it won't flimsy.

And on top of each set I have the heavy plastic page divider ( I originally thought these would work but they aren't smooth and the stamps would not cling)

And on the backs of the sheets I cut out the Unity stamp image off the packaging for reference.

Here is a top view, the 2' binder easily holds 8 full sheets of stamps (there are 7 here I added another later and fit perfect) I was rough with the binders when I flipped them right side up and none of the stamps came off the page protectors.

And finally I cut out the Unity logo of the packaging and used a glue dot and some hemp string to secure the tags on the binder and then used Doodlebug Designs glitter stickers to label them.

Total cost for this project was under 20 bucks with plenty of page protectors left over.
Now for my wood mounted stamps I really like the Snap-Lock Storage cases that I purchased from Unity. They are 12.50 for 4 and work perfectly!
That's it, now that my space is cleaned up it's time to scrap a layout!
Thanks for stopping by!

Great storage tips Shemaine! I have to go through all of my stuff as well and sort it. What a chore! At least I usually find something really cool that I forgot I had
