    What NOT to do: Just try to peel the stamp off the envelope. This will damage the stamp.

    Here is how you remove it:

    Cut the corner around the stamp itself and put it in a bowl of warm (not too hot) water for a few minutes (like 10 to 15). Stamp should fall down, at which point use tongs to gently take it out of the bowl and place it face down on a paper towel and let them dry. When they are completely dry place them inside a big book to flatten thm out (since they may have curled a bit) for like a week or so, then place them in your stamp album.
