This is such a great idea! There are tons of the small, plain brown boxes at the nearby craft store and i've only painted them or covered them with fabric. Paint and Fabric are also good ideas for this, i must say.

For a gift, you could even give a medly of the three, or two. Whatever - just thanks for giving me the idea of the stamps! : )

You don't actually have to have the sticky part of the stamp exposed.  If you read through the original post's directions, you put a layer of mod podge on your box and then place all of the stamps on top of that.

Soak your stamps in water for a few hours. They should come right off the envelope by themselves. Let them dry on a paper towel and you should have just stamps.
