I had a huge stamp collection (none which were worth anything) and was getting bored with just looking at it.  I decided to put it to good use and created this tea tin with it!  I bought a plain tin bucket at Michaels for about $5, and also some Mod Podge and a brush.  Then I went to work putting the stamps all over the tin.  I use it for storing tea bags.  Hope you like it!

That looks wonderful!  I have an old stamp collection in a closet somewhere myself, and this is a great way to actually enjoy them.

Nicely done.

I, too, have a vast no-real value stamp collection.  I am trying to decide to continue to add to it  or go nuts with some mod podge.


( I have been jokingly toying with mod-podging the stamps to a toilet seat and then varnishing it.  Do you think it will hold up?)

A postage stamp toilet seat is a great idea!  I think if you coat it with enough Mod Podge and varnish it will be just fine in the moist environment of your bathroom.  I would recoat it with varnish every few years since it will be seeing lots of sitting action  Grin

Grin  I too have stamps, but they are all the self stick kind.  What is the best way to remove them from the envelope and not ruin them?  Your tea tin is fantastic!!
