ornament ideas with postage stamps
Please tell me I'm not the only one who has a real "thing" for pretty postage stamps, lol! I always tear or cut the stamps off all my cards & letters and save them.
Here are two cute ornaments I received this Christmas. On the left is a lovely stamp from my friend Barbara. She & her DH run an aviation art gallery in historic Gettysburg. It is framed very elegantly in a tiny matboard frame. The stamp is mounted to another piece of tan matboard. I just love this gray matboard!! Look closely at it and you can see it looks (and feels) just like velvety suede. I must get some for myself!!
The cool ornament on the right is a canceled stamp mounted on shrink plastic which I received in a shrink ornament swap. Denise covered the shrink with some layers of glittery embossing powder. You could easily use a light cardboard if you had no shrink plastic. I love the wire hanger and little tag embellishment!
I think either of these would look wonderful with the romantic postage stamps for a Valentine's card embellishment or ornament.
