I've been looking for an easy, fast way to store my stamps that doesn't require stamping indexes or expensive binders (that are hard to flip through- my binder rings always separate in the middle!), and this is perfect for me. I even had a pack of transparencies in my stash already from another idea I had YEARS ago to stamp my own decorative transparencies, so I didn't have to buy anything (we already had the cardstock and packing tape in the house, too).
Just wanted to share since I know that clear stamp storage is a popular topic here! I took a trial run at it this weekend and put together two sheets quickly and LOVE it already!

I totally agree with the OP...I did mine the same way and absolutely LOVE it!
Is this an instrument of torture or communication?

Of course, while I was on youtube, I was sucked into watching a MercyTiara process video! I always feel so inspired after watching her create.
I think her stamp storage is great but I don't think I'm ready to commit to getting rid of my packaging yet.

Thank you for posting this. I love this storage idea and have everything at home to do this!! I can't wait to watch more of Mercy Tiara's videos!!

I am all about keeping things organized and dust free. Her open basket won't work well in my home or environment. We get very dusty here in Central Oregon.
I just put together a new way for my clear stamps, my Heartfelt Creations red rubber stamps and Spellbinders or HCD dies. I need to take some photos, or perhaps do my first YouTube video?
In summary: I didn't like the notebook style as it was too bulky on my table, and too much space on my shelf because I had the zipper closed padded style of binders. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on DVD or CD storage boxes, or some of the other boxes that were out there.
At Walmart a few days ago I found the old style plastic report covers that have prongs to hold 3-hole punch standard paper. I bought 26 of one color and got started!
I took my 8 1/2 x 11 page protectors, some of which I used the sewing machine to stitched with my sewing machine to make to pockets. Much cheaper than buying the pre-made pocket style. My clear stamps go into the pockets, keeping general themes together on a page. I do have the baseball collector card pages that work well for smaller stamps like Studio G, or small TT stamps. I put up to 4 pages into a report cover by themes. Then labelled the spine.
For my Heartfelt Creations stamps that have matching dies I did something similar. I used adhesive-backed magnetic tape and put the dies back on their original packaging card. I needed to trim the card a little to fit nicely into the 8 1/2 x 11 page protector. The dies, masks to allow perfect placement, and matching stamps all went into one report cover.
I put them in a storage box that normal uses hanging file folders. It works beautifully! Now to take a few photos or make a video?
