If you have unmounted your rubber stamps - what did you do with the clam shells and all the wooden blocks? thanks,

Well, I haven't done anything with them yet but I plan to recycle the clamshells and pitch the blocks.

I only have a few clam boxes but I put all to use...for storing handmade embellishments for things like -rolled flowers, paper beads, shrink embellishments, also-to store scraps of specialty papers, handmade backgrounds and for techniques like the marble rolling technique.
As for the blocks...I made about 3 additional alcohol ink tools by stapling Velcro to a block. Also made a couple "1 of a Kind" stamps with left over rubber scraps or die cut craft foam and glue to blocks. Handmade stamps make great presents for other stampers!

I sold mine as sets on eBay and got a few dollars per set. Keep in mind that this was 7-8 years ago; so I don't know if there is still demand for them or not.
