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.

Rubber Stamp Business Card HolderThese 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.

  1. Remove rubber from bottom of stamp.
  2. Drill two holes in top of handle.
  3. 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.
