* backtack part 3

Posted on October 14th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Paper Crafts.

Latest installment of the letterboxing kit (part 1 and part 2). It’s a little book to collect stamps from the boxes she finds. I found these cute little 3 inch x 3 inch books somewhere, but they have awful covers (you can see a peek at the spine). I glued on the fabric cover and also a piece of green fabric inside to hide the flaps. It’s not exactly my best work, but it’ll do.


I also finally lined the bag, with dark blue fabric from the Most Useful Ikea Sheets Ever (included in 4 projects now and counting). Gosh, does that mean I’m done?

    Thank you so much for blogging about this! It piqued my ineterest, I showed my daughters (8 and 10 years old) and… we’re hooked! We spent the weekend carving stamps and hunting local boxes. Educational and fun!
