Reason #107 to Save Your Rubber Scraps

Save Your Rubber Scraps! Upcycle and create fun shaker cards or birthday tags - by LovenStamps (An Exclusive Stamps in the Mail Club Project)

I know – it’s totally enabling.  Promise me you won’t actually hoard your rubber scraps, and we’re all okay here.

Actually, now that I think of it, you should be just fine.  When you mount your clear-mount stamps, just leave the rubber framework in the box and you’re all set!  No mess.  No fuss.  Your storage is compact, and Hoarders won’t come to your doorstep.

Okay – so what to do with those rubber scraps?  Here’s a SUPER fun reason to save them!  It works for pretty much any stamp, but it works BEST for stamp sets that have a coordinating framelits collection so you can easily cut the window in the top layer that covers the “guts” of the shaker.

And what a coincidence… there are 5 stamp/framelit bundles on sale this month!  They’re ALL perfect!!

And even better, if you want to make this project at home, you can! It’s one of my Stamps in the Mail Club projects during August, and all the pieces come directly to you in the mail, ready to stamp!

Save Your Rubber Scraps!  Upcycle the rubber frames and create fun Shaker Tags or cards! - by LovenStamps

 Upcycle Your Rubber Scraps: Shaker Box Tags

The process is pretty simple.

  1. Trim the rubber frame to fit behind your card stock pieces.  Peel the thin rubber layer off one side of the ‘frame’.
  2. Add a thin layer of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive (110755) and apply to the card stock, then remove the sticker from the back of the foam.
  3. Place the glittery goodies inside the box, add another layer of glue to the foam and add the “lid” (framelit die cut piece plus a window sheet or cello bag).
  4. Shake and enjoy your glittery cuteness!
