EZ Mount Offcuts.

Hi everyone!

For those of you that don't know, EZMount is Static Cling Foam that you adhere to the back of red rubber stamp sheets (like the ones from Darkroom Door) before cutting out the images so that they cling to your acrylic blocks for stamping.

I don't know about you, but I have LOTS of EZMount offcuts!

I keep all the bits that I don't use, just in case I buy any smaller unmounted stamps that I can mount with the off cuts.

However, I now have way more offcuts than I will ever have small stamps to use them on! LOL! And I bet I'm not the only one. So let's share some ideas on what to do with them!

Recently I ran out of double sided foam mounting tape, so in a pinch I used a small piece of EZMount. I adhered the sticky side to my embellishment, and then just glued the smooth side down to my project. Worked like a charm! The EZMount is thicker than normal mounting tape, so you get a much more 3D effect. Used in conjunction with other embellishments mounted with normal foam mounting tape, you could also create different depths on your projects! Too cool!

While I was teaching a class recently, one of the ladies mentioned that her daughter used the offcuts to create foam stamp shapes for kids to paint with! What a fabulous idea! Apparently the kids made some awesome Christmas wrapping paper by stamping their shapes with paint onto brown paper. Fantastic!

So - have you seen or heard of any great ideas for using up EZMount leftovers? What do you do with your left over bits and pieces? We'd love to hear from you, so let us know in the comments! :)
