Origami With Postage Stamps

These cards arrived in my mail yesterday. The butterflies are made from used postage stamps. Sadly, I don't know the name of the person who makes these cards. All I know is that she is an 80-year-old lady who lives in Berlin. A friend of mine knows her. The lady does voluntary work with teenagers and teaches them fabric art. She also makes cards like those you can see here. A few weeks ago, my friend asked if I had any used postage stamps in my stash. I did, and I also knew I hadn't found any use for them in years. So, I raked through my stash, found them, and sent them off - a big, fat envelope full. Like many of us who do mixed media, journaling and altered art, I was delighted to know that someone would be able to use them. This was the lady's thank you. I'll keep one and send the other to one of my art friends, next time I have a reason to write snail mail.
