DIY Stamping Plate Backing

I purchased a series of stamping plates a few months back on AliExpress from this Seller, (I think they are out of stock of these plates at the moment) and these plates don't have any kind backing on them, it's just the metal plate. While the plates aren't exactly sharp, they aren't that smooth around the edges, so I wanted a backing on them.
After looking around online, I went to my local hardware store and found some acrylic sheeting, courtesy of two very nice associates who sold me a scrap piece. Then, I measured it according to the size I wanted for my plates, scored it with a sharp box cutter and glued them to my plates.
The video will show you my first attempt at these. It got a little easier as I went along, though I decided to only do a few of my plates, and keep looking for other ideas.



Cheers til next time! xoxo
