U Mount Foam - Warning

I won some Creative Expression stamps, and bought u foam mount to back it up with. I read the instructions and decided to follow! BIG MISTAKE. The instructions tell you to cut each stamp out then place it on the u mount foam, cut it foam out bigger than the stamp, then take the sticky side out, stick the stamp on. Then cut it again. Each U foam mount sheet can cover the back of 2 sets of stamps. Following their instructions is time wasting, and you get sticky scissors, and you will end up using two sheets for two set of stamps instead of one.

I found it easier to stick the whole of the stamp sheet onto the u foam mount - then, cut it out. No sticky scissors, and no cutting the image out three times.

Yes, I had problems but I did not want to waste it on spaces without stamps, I only had one stamp to back, and I did get a bit messy but at least I did not waste too much. Margaret

I find it easier to stick the whole thing down ... but if you want to follow their instructions use talc on the sticky bit before you cut and then no gummed up cutting things.
