I ordered a few se-tenant booklets from eBay sellers. Most of them have 2 stamps that repeat on the front and have 8 stamps on the back. I'd like to remove these stamps so I can use them postally and just keep the block of 10 that makes up the se-tenant. I don't have any old backing paper around (but I think I am going to keep some going forward). What's the best thing to stick them to, so I can reuse them on letters and packages? Would wax paper work? Ir is there something better I can use?

After I've finished using mailing labels, I reuse the label backing paper for stamps that I plan to use for postage.

Ask your local post office if you can have any empty booklets, assuming that they do sell single stamps off of them. Then remove the remaining printed paper that had surrounded the stamps and you now have backing paper suited for the job.

I've tried waxed paper in the past and it is very iffy. Some stamps won't stick to it and some stick too well, tearing the wax paper when you try to remove them and sticking to the back of the stamp. As mentioned above, used label sheets and stamp pane backing sheets are best, but not the ones with die-cuts clear through the backing.

I use the backing paper from the $2 Jenny sheets.
