I heard a song one day - the siren song of a beautiful book of Victorian style stickers. Alas, I don't write that much correspondence. Finally I realized the nearly limitless crafting potential of such a fun book. Stickers everywhere! Add some gloss, and you've got extra details on your project that totally pop. When you're done with the stickers you can use the beautiful pages for origami. Or you can turn the entire book into a keepsake box. Let your imagination go as wild as some of these stickers.
