Organization Tip #1: Rub-Ons

Have you ever bought a set of rub-ons, used one, and then realized that you didn't know how to store the rest of them without them getting ruined? Well, here's a great tip that will protect those rub-ons, and keep them safe until you are ready for them: cut out the individual rub-ons, and then attatch them to wax paper with tape. The tape will be on the non-printed side, so your rub ons will always be ready for you to use! Try it out, you'll be glad you did!
