Patriotic Stamped Book Stack for 4th of July Decor

If you have been following 2 Bees for a bit, then you know how much we love stamped book stacks. Today we’re sharing how to make a patriotic stamped book stack.

I always feel that I need to really stress the fact that no valuable books were harmed for this project. These paperback books are thrift store castoffs that sold for .10¢ each. Some books were free!

SUPPLIES


 

Carefully dip the stamp onto the ink pad. Line up your stamp to the spine of the book and press. The ink dries very quickly.

Don’t worry if you get ink onto the stamp. It cleans up easily with rubbing alcohol and swabs. 

Next, take the ribbon and wrap it around your book stack a few times. 

Tie it off on the top with a simple knot and bow.

Admire your handiwork. Remember, this doesn’t need to be perfect by any means!

  1.   These books are perfect for an elementary school classroom or library. While studying freedom, patriotism, or historical events, students can reenact history by physically relocating the books to “make room” for new titles. The illustrations are colorful and engaging. The titles are diverse, covering topics of Native American culture, the Boston Tea Party, the writing of the Declaration of Independence, and more!

    1. Nia – we are so happy that you have been inspired by this project. Thanks for sharing your wonderful idea for the classroom!

      All the best,
      Vicki and Jenn~2 Bees
