Some postage stamps are so beautiful you can’t help but try to find something to do with them. Why not use them as earrings? With all of the different types of stamps from around the world, there are endless options and one to pair with every outfit you can come up with.

What you’ll need:

Step 1. Choose two stamps – used or unused – that you think would make great earrings. While they should be the same stamps, they can each have different postmarks on them.

Step 2. Glue the stamps onto white cardstock with the Mod Podge, smoothing out the glue and air bubbles. Let them sit to dry for a few hours before moving onto the next step.

Step 3. If you have a laminator, put the stamps through and check that there’s no air bubbles on top. Another option is to cover the front and back of the stamps with clear Con-Tact paper.

Step 4. Cut out the stamps from the laminate.

Step 5. Use a mini hole punch to make a small hole in the top center of each stamp.

Step 6. Use the needle nose pliers to to slightly open each jump ring, then loop each one through each hole in the stamp.

Step 7. Put an earring hook throug each jump ring, then use the needle nose pliers to close the ring.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!
