Stamp Desk Set Craft
More Kinder Crafts

This great-looking desk set is decorated with postage stamps collected from your mail. You can decorate a notebook, a letter holder, a pencil holder, a desk blotter, paperweight, file, or other desk accessories. This set makes a great gift for Father's Day.

Supplies needed:
  • A lot of cancelled stamps. Either cut them off envelopes close to the stamp, or carefully peel them from the envelope. Some stamps come off with steam.
  • White glue
  • A brush
  • Scissors
  • A new spiral notebook
  • Frozen juice container to make the pencil holder
  • A box (like a cereal box) to make the letter holder
  • A smooth rock to make a paper weight
  • Poster board to make the desk blotter
  • A large cereal box to make the magazine/paper file
  • Tape

Notebook:
For the notebook, brush a thin layer of glue on a the cover of a spiral notebook. Carefully place stamps on it, covering the entire surface. Trim the edges carefully.

Letter Holder:
For the letter holder, start with a sturdy box, like a thick cereal box. Cut the box at an angle.


Brush a thin layer of white glue on part of the outside of the box.

Before the glue dries, put the stamps on the glue in a nice pattern. At the top edge of the box, fold the stamp over the top (and make sure that the folded part of the stamp has glue on it).

Continue putting glue and stamps on the outside of the box until it is covered.

Pencil Holder:
For the pencil holder, brush a thin layer of glue on a clean frozen juice cylinder. Carefully place stamps on it, covering the entire surface. Fold and glue stamps over the top rim to make a neat edge.

Desk Blotter:
For the desk blotter, use poster paper and fold two edges over. Tape them down at the top and bottom.
Brush a thin layer of glue on the folded flaps. Carefully place stamps on them, covering them.

Paper Weight:
Brush the top of a smooth rock with a thin layer of glue. Carefully place stamps on the rock, covering the entire top of the rock.

Paper/Magazine File:
You can make a paper or magazine file from a large cereal box. For instructions, click here.
