I use a lot of small, round boxes in order to have the most flexibility when planting. Double-bagging doesn't work in those boxes.

There are small, even tiny plastic bags at office supply stores. If it's a tight fit that helps to keep things dry. You just have to play around with these methods.

There's an old school thing also....not to do with double bagging really.......but.....if you like small and round........take two old style film canisters....that you can buy on eBay in bulk for not much.....tape them with duct tape...or camo if preferred......with the bottoms together...stamp in one, logbook in the other, use cash register tape for the logbook. :)

Makes a really cool little container. You can put the tiny logbook in one of the tiny plastic bags and if the stamp gets wet that's not really a big deal. Dry it, ink it. :)

Obviously some hiding spots are more suited to the canisters than others but it's a fun container.

That brings back such memories! I loved those containers back in the heyday of early PA boxing, but I haven't seen anybody use that setup in years.

I actually have a couple setting on my desk. I've been wanting to use them. The boxing muse hasn't called out to me yet. Have to do a wee little stamp. Or a "hinged" stamp. More old school I'll bet you remember. heh

You know, I keep looking at that box you planted in MA.....the one I can't figure out yet. lol

Hinged stamps oft accompanied the double film canister boxes.

Which one, Yidstock? Or something a bit more secretive? ;)

Nah. The one that Holmes doesn't put first. :)

I actually think I know but am not sure enough. It *looks* so easy. lol

But nay.......it is not elementary

Did I ever tell you I planted that stamp you returned to me? I meant to.

Ah, that one. It's not from somewhere where I used to fiddle over the summers ;) Not sure if it's still there, though - one attempt report last year, and I haven't been able to return to check on it...

!!!!!! So cool that it's replanted! I'm glad that the rescued stamp was able to live again! !!!!!!

I don't wrap or pouch in felt, but I often use a stamp-sized piece as a blotter page in between the stamp & logbook to absorb excess ink and keep the logbook & baggie clean. I think the pouches are cute, though.
