birds of the world

two challenge blogs had bird themes this week...daring cardmakers and theme thursday.

at first i thought i might do a christmas-themed bird, but then i got an email from a woman named carli in australia - she does papercrafting and she told me about her postage stamp holiday gift tags.

it was amazing timing, i had just been looking at this box in my closet, filled with my childhood postage stamp collection, and wondering what i was ever going to do with this box of stamps i've been carting around for 30-some-odd years. carli gave me the perfect inspiration...and i thank her!

i sifted through and found several stamps with bird images, from different parts of the world. i framed them up and added some ribbon with a metal flower buckle. a cute little bird house!

  1. What a great way to use your stamps Lisa and a fantastic idea to create a little bird house with them.
    I too have a (little) box of stamps and struggle to find a way to use them……so I just don’t!
