Postage Stamps

Does anyone have a sheet of postage stamps they could 'post' up? I have found some on Sparklebox but wondered if there were other designs floating around the web.

 

thanks

Try finding a stamp template and adding your own picture. You could try here

http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/papercrafts/stamp/.

I have often made stamps which fit the theme and placed them in the writing area. I used Publisher to do this using the stamp template, and then added a picture inside the template, but there are other ways if you don't have Publisher. Google may help.

LOVE the making your own perforations idea!!

Think I will make up some blank sheets and let them draw their own stamp designs!.... Do they work best in quite big squares and a big needle on a short stitch or doesn't it matter? Oooh can't wait to try it out!!

a short stitch is better and probably quite big squares.

 

Once upon a time, many years ago (about 30) I had a perforating wheel which looked a bit like a spiky pizza cutter which you could make all sorts of patterns with then tear up....

Thanks Jacquie - if saved as a PDF I can open it.

 

Teddy bear would be nice. If you are able to open this link (never posted one before, hope it works), I'd like this one:

We buy real 1p stamps from the Post Office for the children to use. Have also thought about buying a pack of world stamps they seem quite cheap in Smiths and they are so pretty some of the designs

 

 

I love this idea Panders- will definately use it! :o

I've done that one. :o I'll see what I can do as I do them on my husbands PC computer so that other people can use them. I have an Apple Mac so it isn't compatable with a lot of you, but it's a wonderful machine. Just right for the technologically challenged like me!

If you get intouch with your local sorting office they have lots of resources.

There is a Lenny's letter dvd (i think its a dvd anyway) and lots of different resources they will send you.

They also gave u 30 pre paid envelopes for the kids to send to themselves a variety of pics and letters etc

 

Worth a phone call for some free resources?

P.s the bear stamps are very good :-)

They are indeed! Wouldn't it be great to put a photograph of each child on a stamp so they could be just like the Queen!

 

I have a little Xyron machine that would make a strip of great stamps - must investigate!
