Default Another discovery for unmounting - labels!

As I've been gradually remounting some of my SU! sets to use with acrylic blocks, I've been stamping an index to go in the front of the CD case. Small pain.

Today I mounted a brand new SU! set on some vinyl window cling, and used the stickers for the index. It was so easy, and looks so good, it made me wish I could just reuse those old mounted sticker...

So I tried it.

The microwave melts the adhesive on the index sticker enough to peel it off neatly, too. It looks perfectly good remounted on the square of cardstock I put in the CD case. I didn't have to work all that quickly, either. The blocks held enough heat to do the stamps first, then go back and peel the labels.

I hope this helps someone else. It sure made my day!
