Try It Tuesday~vintage stamp handles!

Hi guys!!!
Thanks for stopping by for Try It Tuesday.
I'm not sure (well pretty sure, I didn't) take a before shot of these vintage stamp handles, you know the ones that go in the Standard desk holder:):)  Tim Holtz has a re-make of the Standard on the market ~anyway, I had some handles but no base.  Hubby put a small block of wood on them and I added the Velcro circles to each block to hold the ink sponges (Tim Holtz)

Small wood block, drilled out and glued to handle.

Velcro added to bottom to hold the sponges.

Pretty cool, right!!!
$2 got two applicators that look way cool.

This one was $1~
I'm going to hand carve a stamp for it.
I'll post it when I get it done:):)
See ya soon~
