Personalised hand mirror decorated with stamps.
My dad used to collect stamps and they just lie around in the cupboard. No-one looks at them so i used some to make a pretty and unique handmirror.

This is my first How-to so forgive me if it's not the best. Enjoy!

  • How to make a mirror compact. Stamp Hand Mirror - Step 1
    Step 1

    Get some stamps (I used ones from places i've been to) and a mirror. I found some cool paper to give the mirror a nicer finish. I used stickers for stamp albums to stick on the stamps to avoid damaging them but tape or glue will work just as well.

    I put double-sided sticky tape around the edges of the mirror to stick on the paper. Make slits in the paper so you can fold it around the mirror if it's circular.
