A personalised postage stamp made showing the artist’s face which can then be printed off for fun. The large version of a fun postage stamp is made using card, paint and accessories. An oval space is left in the centre for the artist’s face to peer through. A border, frilly edges, a crown, hair and lettering are added for authenticity. The wearer is then photographed posing with their face inside the stamp design. The photographs are printed off in multiples on a sheet and can be used as fun stamps alongside real ones to send a letter or postcard.
You could use this clip to inspire fun classroom ideas around postage stamps. Children could examine real stamps and design their own version. They could make personalised school postage stamp designs showing elements of their school. Children could also draw themselves into a stamp design.
