Recycled Mail

While reading a book about creating your own stationery, my muse struck and I created this little booklet in moments.  I had saved this envelope as it was covered with very unique vintage US stamps.

I cut the portion of the envie with the stamps on it.  Since it was not quite as long as I needed, I rescued another piece of the envelope to make the back.  The paper inside is a heavy cardstock that has an aged feel.  I cut the strips twice as long as I needed and then punched two holes along the seam I created by folding the strips in half.  I used a heavy twine to lace through the holes.  Simple little notebook with a touch of vintage postal charm.

  1. Wonderful use of some stamps such great variety. I always hate to throw away envelopes covered also. Though more often real stamps aren't used which is sad.


All the comments and feedback you leave affirms my creative spirit on a very deep level. I am grateful for your time and readership!
