I have here an envelope.
Inside this envelope are a bunch of old postage stamps. Each one is valued at 5 cents.
Each one is from Canada. And I’m assuming most of them date from the late 1950s through the 1960s.
I want to do something awesome with them, so maybe you can help me come up with some ideas. I’ve seen a lot of things on the internet that are postage-stamp inspired, but the three most common projects that seem to turn up using the actual stamps themselves are these:
I’m not that into découpage, but this stamped table is intriguing (though I don’t have a small table at the moment).
This postage stamp monogram is also interesting, and the Pie and I do share the same first initial (heck, I could probably do ALL of the Pie’s initials with the amount of stamps I have — and he has two middle names).
I also really like the collage of postage stamps, framed and based on colour. Though I feel like this might be better suited for a collection of stamps from all over the world, or one where I don’t have so many stamps of the same design. But we shall see.
This one is my particular favourite, from 1956. I kind of want to blow this one up to poster size and frame it.
Please let me know if you have any ideas!
