Default Storing snap stamps?

Okay, thanks to some enablers here (who will remain anonymous), I purchased some of Karen Foster's snap stamps from Joann.com. I haven't opened them yet, in part because I am uncertain how best to store them after I do. Any suggestions? TIA!

Probably not the best idea, but what I do is click them all together to form a big straight line alphabet, then I have them in the bottom of a small plastic drawer that is high out of reach from the kiddies. I snap together what I want and then replace them in the big line when I am done. I like it, but I bet someone has a better idea.

I just got my first set last night too, and I couldn't figure out what to do with mine either...sooooo I also snapped mine into a great big long line and just set them up on a shelf.

I had mine (3 sets each of 1/8" casual & formal) in long lines and I HATED putting them back together. I found a fairly flat compartment type organizer (you know - for hardware/ embellishments) and assigned 1 letter per compartment (except for X Y and Z which are in the same section). I have casual & formal in the same section. But it makes prep and cleanup MUCH easier - at least for me.

I, too, fell victim to the enablers I snapped mine together in shorter sections, just long enough to fit width-wise in a cardboard photo box. I have one set of each size and they all fit easily into one box. I take out the whole alphabet while stamping and keep them lined up on the table so they aren't too bad to piece back together.

Now this is a GREAT idea! I'd use mine more often if I didn't have to search so long for letters!
