nr. 9 - bookmark

This bookmark is made of different Dutch poststamps.

nr. 8 - BTC (Binder Trading Card)


I'd never heard of a BTC, but I saw a swap on Swap-bot and decided to join.
The size of a BTC is 1.75" wide x 3.5" tall. (4,5 x 8,9 cm). Both sides are decorated and it has a hole in the top left corner so the receiver can hang it on a ring or a ribbon.

This one goes to Australia!

This envie is for my friend Martha. A decorated envie with the theme used poststamps.
Martha is fond of cats so I made a cat for her on her envie.

nr. 6 decoupage paper napkins

Quite another technique is decoupage paper napkins.
I applied a paper napkin on a whimsey jar.
This is the first time I tried this technique.
