5 Ways I Use My Stampin' Up! Silicone Craft Sheet

The Silicone Craft Sheet from Stampin' Up! may not be the most exciting product to look at, but that is often the case with things that are really useful!  So for this week's Find Out About Friday I thought I would share 5 ways I use my Stampin' Up! Silicome Craft Sheet.
5 Ways to use your Silicone Craft Sheet from Stampin' Up!

1.  When using a hot glue gun - this is really what the mat was designed for - it protects your work surface and the hot glue does not stick to it so you have somewhere to put your project while you are working on it

2. When I am using my heat tool - the heat resistant properties of the Silicone Craft Sheet make it ideal to put under things when you are heat embossing

3. When I am inking edges - Using the Silicone Craft Sheet when you are inking edges is great not only because it stops you getting ink on the paper you are working on but also as it helps you get a better finish and use less ink.  For the best results when you are inking your edges you want to start working the ink just off the page and move onto your piece. When you use your Silicone Craft Sheet you will be able to get a smooth movement and you can go back and pick up the ink that was not on your piece

4. When punching and sticking intricate shapes - Putting the Silicone Craft Sheet underneath your card when you are punching intricate shapes such as the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch will mean that clearing up the scraps is easy - they stick to the mat until you actively brush them off making it easy to get them into the bin rather than all over the table/floor/house!

The Silicone Craft Sheet is also great when you want to use snail adhesive on little shape or on shapes with cut outs - when you run your snail along the piece you don't have to worry about the adhesive going through the holes and leaving sticky patches on your work surface

5. When I want a drink - yes seriously!  My Silicone Craft Sheet has become my go to coaster on my craft desk!  No more soggy rings and way less chance of projects being ruined.

Once you invest the £5.50 in your Silicone Craft Sheet you will wonder how you ever coped without it!  I am sure you will also come up with other ways of using it round your craft room and I would love to hear about then,
