Default Creative Transparency Film uses?

I have a box of clear transparency film made for a LASER printer. These clear plastic sheets are not compatible with my inkjet printer. Any idea what else I can use these for?

Would they work as a stamp mask? Or does a mask need to stick to the paper? I suppose I could use them as a clear "glass" window in a card. Any other ideas?

I use transparency film with my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I save all that I get and then
put them into the stamps sets for future use. Just one possibility. The window
is another good way to use them.

Make little boxes or tags. Play with alcohol inks on them and make some really cool backgrounds or die cuts.

Both of these are great ideas!

I've got a Stamp-a-ma-jig in my JoAnn's shopping cart.
**Stamping stuff on sale (including stuff that I can't get in the storefront) plus free shipping with the code ab228 (exp. 8/15).

And I have an original Sizzix that I've not used in forever. The sheets would be great to make "ghost" images. And I do have alcohol inks that need to be used, too.

I have some beautiful cards in my gallery where I used alcohol ink on transparancy and then turned it over after it was dry and stamped an image on it with StazOn. These are simple but can be very beautiful.
blessings.

You can also heat emboss on laser transparencies, but not on ink jet ones.
