Spring has finally arrived at our offices and the birds are chirping from the trees. Upcycle some library cards and sleeves to commemorate the season and add some mixed-media details. Treat your friend to a handwritten letter on a library card, with some goodies in a Kraft bag. Sending handwritten letters, cards and notes is an easy way to let someone know you care.
We’d love to see what you are making. Share your artwork on Instagram using #StampingtonMade for a chance to be a featured artist on @stampington!
