A World of Stamps
from Lotta Magazine
Things you need:
- Bulk world stamps which can be purchased
from post offices or on eBay
(*note from Cassi - I purchased a beautiful
assortment of stamps from this seller on eBay)
- Envelopes or small zip lock bags
- Printer and A4 cardstock
- Sticky tape
- Glue stick
How to make:
1. Sort your stamps into the countries or continents
they come from and place them into the labelled
envelopes or bags. If you are not sure where some
of the countries are, use an atlas to find out.
2. Download and print out the template onto A4 card.
Use our guide to join the pages together by taping
them on the back. To make it easier to handle, join
the pages that overlap to form countries, but don’t
join up the whole world yet.
3. Using our template as a rough guide, place the
stamps from a continent or country to create its
4. Once you are happy with your design, glue the
stamps into their final position.
5. Now join all your completed sections together
to make the whole world map.
