Quick Picks : 6.11.15

Land Rover Defender Mini Paper Model

One of six miniature pop-out self-assembly paper models of classic Land Rover Defenders by FP Creative (so many fun little details!)

This Week’s Picks

♥ Digging the new self-inking stamps from Chatty Press. Some very cool return address stamps in this bunch, and the bookplate stamp is so much fun!

♥ Waterproof pages made of stone?! That’s one rugged notebook, and that’s pretty darn awesome, too.

♥ Incredible book sculptures by Guy Laramée that are carved to look like the natural habitats of birds.

♥ A handmade secret diary with individually tea stained pages, marbled endpapers, a soft leather cover, and a lock and key. Beautiful, and so much better than any of the secret diaries that I had when I was a kid!

♥ If you’re a packaging fan, then you’ve gotta check out this stylish collection of packaging for Nashville area brands.
