New Zealand postage stamps


PTI's Anniversary celebration challenge today is to use buttons.  I found this fun piece of patterned paper in my bag of scraps (Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge) and die cut it out with the PTI Notebook die.  I added an old postage stamp that I found in the bottom of a box I recently unpacked, stamped an Air Mail stamp to it and added PTI's Mailbox Greetings sentiment to the bottom.  I think I'm going to send this to one of my fabulous friends in New Zealand, miss you guys!

Materials: PTI kraft card stock, New Zealand stamp paper from stash, New Zealand postage stamp, K and Co buttons, pink string, Twinery pink sorbet twine, Air Mail stamp, PTI Mailbox Greetings sentiment, Stampin Up black ink, PTI Notebook die
