3 Easy crafts to Recycle Postage Stamps

If you're anything like me, you probably have one of those boxes filled with used postage stamps.

I actually have two, one for my collection, and one for scrap or odd ones that I like to reuse for my crafts and DIYs; today I'm going to share with you three of my favourite ways to have fun with them!

Project 1: Stamps Bunting

It's super easy and quick to do. All you need is a piece of string, some washi tape, glue or double sided tape, and of course some stamps; Use the glue or the double sided tape to secure the stamps to your string, and then the washi to attach it to your letter, notecard, or whatever you decided to decorate.

Project 2: Decoupage

If you have a boring notebook (or a small ornament as well) you can jazz it up a bit by using your old stamps. All you need is some mod podge and a brush: apply a first coat of glue, place your stamp, and go over them all with another coat of glue. Easy peasy!

Project 3: Stamps Cut Outs

Using the same technique as above, make a collage of stamps on an piece of cardboard, cut it out in a shape you like, and use it to decorate notecard, letters and the likes! Also, if you have a cute punch, you can use it on the scraps and add another extra touch to your craft!

Have you ever recycled your stamps? I'd love to hear about your projects ☺
