OK, how do you use them??? I have quite a few sets now, and I just do not see how the smallest one or possibly two are even USABLE.

they don't fit most stamps,,,,

I have YET to use most of them,,,,,

anything I haven't thought of so I get some good use out of the whole set???

I would love to know as well!!! The only thing I can think of would be to use them for a name/label??? One word stamp? Any examples would be great too!!! (good question!!!!)

Individual letters, link them together with rings.

Collage side by side.

Make a banner with individual words on each one and string together

Umm.... I'm sure there's LOTS more uses.

I agree that they tend to work well on smaller scale projects - ATCs, small framed art, small tags on cards, etc.

Here's an example of a small tag on a card. I wanted it to look like the price tag on a dress

Here's another where I used the smallest in the set.

On this one, I used the smallest to create the book pages for this mini book on the card.

I use them for little tags I also like to cut a bunch of them and use them as boarders or accents on pages.

I've used my smallest nested circles and scalloped circles for flower centres. I have also stamped single letters on them and made a title out of them.

I love the ideas already mentioned! You could also use them as a faux envelope seal, either by itself or covered in dimensional/glossy accent or layers of embossing powder to give it some height & gloss. I also saw a technique somewhere where the lady built up layers of embossing powder then while it was still warm made an impression with a charm or stamp which gave it a wax seal look.

I'd feel better if I could remember where I saw it! I'd put my money on YouTube. I never realised that you could build up layers of embossing powder like that :-)
