    I, too, hang mine on the pegboard, but what a fantastic idea to attach the clip from the plastic bag closure things. I will be doing that to mine too now. Thanks for making my life a little easier! Hugs and smiles.......

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I didn't laugh but did snicker a little.

    I hang them on a shower curtain clip then put that on my peg board...they are easy to flip and take out!

    What a good idea. Members here are so resourceful.

    I store them behind pictures that are on our walls. The picture frames keep them flat.

    Great idea -- can you imagine what a burgler looking for a safe would think?

    I have put some in page protectors before. At the present time they are tangled in a drawer... gotta do something about that!

    The previous owner had cup hooks in the beam in our sewing room so I hang them from there. Have to watch though...the cat likes to get at them. I have to keep my project boxes away from the hanging stencils so he can't get on the boxes.
