Turn Old Stamps into Photo or Business Card Holders
I love it when vintage pieces can be repurposed into something new and useful. I also love alternatives to traditional picture frames. I spotted this clever Rubber Stamp Junk Project on Junk Camp. Self-proclaimed junker, Ki, collects vintage rubber stamps and decided to turn a few of them into photo holders. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
These photo holders would be great decor in a home office. Use them to display photos, business cards, important notes, or recipe cards. They would also make a great gift. All you need is a stamp with a nice wooden handle, a little glue, and some wire.
- Remove rubber from bottom of stamp.
- Drill two holes in top of handle.
- Shape wire and insert into holes.
Get the full step-by step instructions and detailed pictures for the Rubber Stamp Junk Project over at Junk Camp. Be sure to check out Ki’s other great Junk Projects.
