Teen Lounge: Rubber Stamp Making (Letterboxing Series)

Tuesday, August 21, 2012  
3:30 PM
Letterboxing is a type of treasure hunt/hiking activity involving hidden boxes, journals and rubber stamps. Each person needs his or her own personal rubber stamp (called a signature stamp) to leave his mark on the letterbox's journal. In return you take an image of the box's stamp for your own journal. It's like treasure that is art and proof of your find.

Today we'll be making our own signature stamps that can be used for letterboxing or leaving you mark in large!
