Warning: This project may turn you into a compulsive stamp-saver.
Stamp Box Materials
- postage stamps, canceled or not
- glue stick
- Mod Podge
- display medium: cardboard box, wooden box or bowl, notebook cover, old lunchbox…be creative here and use whatever
- optional: deckle-edge scissors
Simply cut or tear the stamps from the envelopes (leave a little envelope if it’s a pretty one) and then glue them on your selected item. When finished, you can apply a few coats of Mod Podge as a sealant.
I leave this box open in the foyer at Christmastime and add all the cards that arrive each day. Before I store the holiday decorations I spend an afternoon updating my stamp box. I figure I have one or two more years before this box is full and then I’ll do a wooden bowl or box and maybe even incorporate a few pages from some old hymnals onto the new receptacle.
Be sure to send me photos if you do this project!
