Tips and Techniques Thursday

Uh oh.  Too much birthday celebrations this week.  I almost forgot to post a new tips and techniques for Thursday.  So, here are a couple of tips to keep you going another week, I hope.  

Tip 1 - The original size Cuttlebug, Sizzix, and Quickutz embossing folders store perfectly in 4” x 6” size recipe boxes.  For easy reference, I like to use a label maker to label each one with their descriptive title, or write on them with a Sharpie permanent marker.

Tip 2 - Brass stencils can be stored in 4” x 6” size mini photo albums you can purchase at your local craft store.  Just flip through the book for your favorite stencil.  If you have lots, you can store them by theme, or even by manufacturer, and add file labels to the pages.  You can then store them on a book shelf.

Tip 3 - If you recycle, keep a lookout for #6 plastic because it is the same as shrink plastic.  You can use it to make your own shrink plastic embellishments. 

Well, as always, I am so very glad you stopped by today.   I hope you enjoyed today's tips and will visit again soon.

Have a very happy and creative week.
