HOW TO BE ECONOMICAL WITH STAMPIN UP SPONGES

Stop washing those sponges so you can use them over and over again, but in different ink colors!  If you haven't already found a way to save money on your Stampin' Up! Sponges, let me suggest a way for you.

Purchase THREE packages of the Stampin' Up! sponges at $3.50 each for a total of $10.50 (excluding taxes and shipping costs).

Cut EACH sponge into six wedges.  


Using the Stampin' Up! Round Tab Extra-Large Punch, punch a piece of card stock from each card stock color (45 card stock colors counting the In-Color Collection), or of the colors you have.  Write on your punched out Round Tab the color of the card stock.  Place the Round Tab around the small end of the wedge and staple it.


Now you have a sponge for each ink color that you can use repeatedly for that particular ink color.  The sponges last a loooooong time.  I swear by the Stampin' Up! sponges.  Believe me, I've tried many other forms of sponges, and nothing gives me the effect I want like these sponges do.

Now that you have your sponges cut and labeled, you'll want to store them in a plastic container with dividers.  This will make it so easy to keep them in one place and to find the right color of sponge for your matching ink color.

If you haven't tried this, please try it and let me know what you think.

HAPPY SPONGING WHILE SAVING MONEY!

God's Blessings!
