Vintage prettiness
I got the postage stamps from my sister who had got them from my aunt because she was under the misapprehension my sister collected them… when really it was my brother who did…Anyways… she gave ‘em to my since she figured I might do something craftsy with it… and I did. I think some of the stamps might even be collectors items coz they're pre-WWII

This is really amazing... I can see using different coloured paper squares instead of stamps as well. Lovely idea! :D

This is so awesome- my grandma used to think I loved collecting stamps (not so, as it turns out), so I have a lot of them.
