How To Tuesday: Mini Stamp Holder

update! I'm so excited that this lil project has been chosen for one of the play date cafe's winners!!! Yaaaay :)
 How long has it been since I did a how-to tuesday? This is ridiculous. While cleaning up the kitchen last night and listening/watching The Bachelorette, my brain made a great discovery just as I was about to throw this away...


My container for all those dollar stamps sure has been full lately. And wow, this box looks like it could be the perfect size for some mini stamps! Um, yup. It totally is.
So I played along with the great color story at Play Date Cafe, which is aquamarine, poolside, and clay. And the photo seriously reminded me of home


I used my favorite value paper stack e-v-e-r which had the perfect colors and patterns to match these colors. (Recollections, a Michael's brand, Mosaic Stack)



So very simple. I cut all the top flaps off the top of the box. I measured the sides and cut the paper to fit. I used my ATG gun adhere easily to the box. To clean up the corners, I folded over a strip of washi tape from Target.

Here is my new holder in action...

The. Perfect. Size. And since my regular stamp sets are held in a recovered soda 12 pack box, I figure this little guy would match perfectly.

What would you make with a ziplock box?
