NOTICE - CAUTION - ATTENTION:
The following has NOTHING to do with rabbits and I disapprove ....
Well, we had some family company this weekend and the talk turned to Letterboxing.
We are casual letterboxers and needed to make some better
and more unique stamps for ourselves!Letterboxing is the search for hidden boxes (or maybe sandwich bags!) that have a journal and stamp in them. You find the clues for letterboxes from sites like letterboxing.org or atlasquest.com. You carry your own journal and stamp. When you find a box, you "stamp-in" to the box journal with your stamp and a note, and record the box stamp, and maybe a note or two also, in your journal!
Anyway, we got some good stamp carving material .. that white stuff ... a bit like erasers ... and some carving tools. There are several different shapes of gouges that come with the tool. You take off what you don't want to show up when you "stamp" ... you can see a bit of our first attempts ... FUN! ... need more practice!
Below is an example of a Letterboxer's Journal ... some boxes and boxers have very nice stamps!!! There are some SERIOUS letterboxers out there.
Do any of you Letterbox too???
