Default Substitute for acrylic block?

We are building a house and I think I may have (are you sitting down??) packed my acrylic block for my stamps! GASP!! I was wondering if anyone know of something I can substitute for it until my new one arrives? Hopefully something that I don't have to buy and might have around the house.
Thanks!

If you have any wood mounted stamps, I have heard of people using the sticker as the smooth surface. I know you won't be able to see through it, but it could work until your new block arrives.

I haven't actually tried it myself.

I have used an empty CD case or sometimes you can use your stamp pad if
the lid is flat. Hope that helps!

You can use the bottom of a drinking glass...

If you have a cuttlebug (and its not packed!), the B plate works.

If you have any wood mounted stamps, use double sided tape to tape your unmounted stamp to the part of the block that has the plastic-coated image--in other words, on the opposite side of the wood block from where the other rubber is "permanently" mounted on it. I've done that when I am in a rush and can't find my acrylic blocks under my mess.

You could probably also use a small, clear hard plastic box, the bottom of a small (dipping sauce size) clear glass bowl...the possibilities are endless! Not a good long-term solution, but would work in a pinch.

You can use anything with a clean smooth surface to it!

Your stamp pad or a small glass plate works. Even a slick piece of tile.

In a bind, I've used the lid of my VersaMark pad!
