tiniest stamp album

Dear friends,
I still have a few pieces of crumpled brown paper bags left. And I felt like making a tiny book and do a little sewing yesterday. Itchy fingers, LOL. I collect stamps when I was in primary school and only last year I started collecting again. Sadly, they now have a shoe box to call home :P. 

Yesterday, I did a test. Sewing a tiny stamp album. I LOVE it, maybe I should do more of these!. For different themes, maybe. I'm so happy that these might just work. 

And this one, to house a few stamps from the British Royal family & castles. I just sewed some plastic sleeves to the paper bags to keep the postage stamps in place. This tiny album measures about 2.5" X 3.5", so small with minimal sewing :). I just stapled all the pages in the middle and decorated the cover with a piece of linen scrap.

 A little flower patch for the front cover.

A suede leather for closure.

A simple stamping on linen for the back cover.

Let me share a few of the pages inside; 

I also added pages with some rags & buttons, just for fun;

I love to keep little scraps, be it papers or fabric. You never know when you need to use them :). I think, tiny projects like this stamp album is a perfect way to use up junk mails with plastic windows!. Just stitch around to make little sleeves. Easy  & fun way to display your stamp collection and recycling. Hope you'd give a try :). Take care all!. HUGS.

  3. Clever idea when you want to swap stamps! I have stamp albums too and mine was since 1970's where my dad and mom started it in the beginning. They became mine when I turned 7. Still have it. But not collecting anymore. Once in a while we buy stamps from the flea market too...hehe..anyways, great work on this one Shahrul!
