Homemade mini stamp press

Here this Blog has sat for a month like an unhatched egg, and today two Posts!!
The problem I am having with the blog is that I am  probably and expert at viewing blogs, but this side of it is a new world to me!

Anyway I am posting a picture of the mini stamp press my husband Steve and son Steve made me for Christmas (also referred to as the Steves).  I love this little press!  I use it all the time now!  It is simply a small clamp thing purchased at home depot, with two Pergo floor samples glued to it and two pieces of thick felt (carpet padding?)glued to the inside of the floor pieces!  The clamps places enough pressure to really flatten stamped and glued layers, giving them a beautiful crispness!  I think the whole thing was under $10.00  I have a A2 size card in it now, but I think I have flattened as many as 12 at a time!
