Faux Postage Stamps

Faux postage stamps, handstamped with animals and botanical images.

Faux postage stamps are fun and easy to make with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Combined with Designer Series Papers and stamp sets, faux postage stamps are a fun addition to your cards or scrapbook pages.

I used the 3 smallest dies from the set to create my postage stamps. You can go bigger if you wish, depending on your project.

It’s a great and economical way to use up your paper scraps for this project. Also, it’s something that can be done quickly. Sometimes, we just need a project that we can complete in minutes and this one is definitely one of those.

Don’t worry if your stamps don’t fit the small space. It adds to the charm of your postage stamps. By showing just a part of the image, you create interest and a sense of mystery. Make sure you add a number at the top right corner for that finishing touch.

Here’s a list of materials to help you create your own faux postage stamps:

I hope that enjoyed this technique and that you’ll give it a go. There are many ways you can use postage stamps to your projects. Add them to your cards, tags, envelopes, bullet journals, scrapbooking and memory-keeping.

Happy paper crafting!
