|I always like to personalize a zine but adding rubber stamps and tape and stickers or whatever I can think of to make each copy a little unique.|
|Most of these Asian rubber stamps I picked up at the free table at the SF Correspondence Co-op -- lucky me!|
But I did buy the take-out container stamp and the hand with chopsticks.
|Some vintage greeting cards....|
|I also made some cards with photos I've taken (that is one at the bottom). And I picked up a stack of free postcards at the Asian Art Museum and folded them in half to make little booklets for the Year of the Ram too. (top right).|
|Some envelopes ready to finish up -- top one is vellum and bottom has a see-thru panel -- I love peek-a-boo envelopes, don't you?|
|Pink/Red Chinese enevlopes|
I love using these envelopes too but I did find out the hard way I have to really tape them up because they tend to break open in transit.
Wouldn't want my zines to fall out, would I?
|I also made some cards using old photos and watercoloring the card stock and envelopes...|
