Photo: My box of stamps


I was very excited to open my "box of junk". It was full of used postage stamps. My first project is a cigar box purse for my sister. As I was sorting through them I noticed there were quite a few that reminded me of vacations that my sister and I have taken together. So that was my inspiration for the purse. I have many stamps left that I will use to make other projects. Thank-you to my junk partner and Sue for putting this fun idea together. I am in for next year too!!
