Rubber Stamp Storage

I’ve been searching for a good storage solution for my rubber stamp inventory, since stuffing them in a drawer in a messy jumble wasn’t working out for me. I ended up ordering a bunch of these jars, and they’re perfect for my purposes. Now my stamps are quickly accessible, and I can easily see how many I have left of each design. The added bonus is that my studio now has a bit of a candy store vibe!

    It’s so funny that you posted this today, we must be on the same wavelength…I was just stamping some gift tags last night, and the crate I keep my stamps in has holes that are big enough for my littlest stamps to fall through. And I happen to have an empty jar just like this, about three feet away…Now, why didn’t I think of that?

    Wouldn’t this also be cute for stamps?

    I have it for sale on my Etsy shop, but thinking of rubber stamp storage makes me want to keep it for myself.

      I would definitely be keeping that jar if I were you! I can’t resist jars. :)

    I use mason jars for storing my craft supplies. I love how pretty they look sitting on a shelf and like you said… it’s easy to see what’s in them :)

    What a great idea and to have a candy store feel makes it even better! Reminds me of my moms candy jar shelf she has for the grand-kids. Thanks for sharing!

    I sorted all of my stamps into categories (animals, flowers, scenery, messages, holidays, etc.) and store them in plastic shoe boxes. They stack nicely on shelves. I took a day and “coded” each stamp with its corresponding box, for example: animal stamps are labeled on the side with ANI-1 to correspond with the ANI-1 box for stamps with animals. I also used a notebook with scrap paper (8 1/2 by 11″) and stamped each image on pages labeled with the code. This took some investment of time with sorting, labeling stamping and cleaning the stamps, but has saved plenty of time in searching for just the right combination of stamps for personalized cards and other paper crafts. The reason I added a number after the code is because I have two boxes of some categories and I know exactly in which box to get and return the stamps.

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
