Storing Stamps

I was talking to Rosie a while ago about the best way to store unmounted stamps and she told me about an idea she'd seen on a blog where someone had used old CD cases. And it works brilliantly! I'm in the process of sorting all mine, but I need more cases. Brian won't let me have his Beatles/Rolling Stones/Eric Clapton (etc) ones, so maybe I need to go to a car boot sale or something.
Anyway.....I've stamped the images on paper and put that in the front of the case..........
...and the stamps cling beautifully to the inside! Sorted!

Hope that might be of some use.
Love Linda

Hi Linda,
I too have seen this storage system and promissed myself to get organised one day... Now you have shamed me into it.
IT'S SUCH A BIG TASK.
I adore your little shabby chic storage and you are right to leave them as they are.. so much better than shelving.
thanx for the lovely comments.
Saw your house up there with the samples...well done.
Wouldnt be able to throw that wrapping away either. lol.
have a nice weekend.
oh and pretty mean of Brian dont you think. xxx

Oooh thanks for that - what a fab idea. That paper bag looks great - you'll have to go back and buy something else!

What a great idea, im getting to the stage where i cant find the stamp im looking for so this would solve that problem no bother. I will have to hunt out some boxes. Thank you for the tip, Jaqi x
