Custom made alphabet stamp set

My set of letters

I don’t know if anyone (except the four that commented) was interested in How to custom make a unmounted letter set but I personally love the photos, so here are some more! Hehe. This is the finished set, though I need to start using it too.

Unmounted I had a look into the giftwrapping shelf and instantly found what I was looking for; a box for my mounted letter stamps! A light-weight paper box that is sturdy, shallow and small enough for all the letters to be viewable but not spread around too much. It’s a Dior perfume gift box, and I love how great it looks filled with these stamps! Perfect!

Set of stamps
They kind of look like tiny radios in a shop window to me. Little pink radio heads with letters on three sides, piled up and ready to deliver a message into the world.

I look (and feel) like a total dork with tape between my eyes as my broken glasses only held together for two days after my visit to the optician. It will be another week until I get new ones, but if I need to go somewhere I have old lenses that I can use. I’m reading so many great posts online (and very personal ones – thanks for sharing, those I’ve commented on knows what I’ve read this week) that I wish I could produce today too, but I don’t have the energy or inclination right now.

What was it again that I was supposed to do when life gave me lemons? I totally forget all the time…

    Ah, someone else who forgets all the time what the next idea/project is…. I am not alone.

    This is wonderful Hanna, it’s so time consuming but well worth the doing. I like how you’ve even put an ink-pad in with the stamps so that there’s no need to hunt one down….

    I hope your glasses get sorted soon, I know how annoying that can be when they break. I’ve always kept my old pair as a spare, just in case.

    The photos of the stamps are great. I also like the stamps and a little jealous of your dymo label maker.

    What a fun stamp set! Very clever way to personalize it!

    Oh, and how about making lemon meringue pie with those lemons, for a change? ;-)
