Great find!

Every year at Christmas I made a fair number of personalized ornaments.  To get the names printed into the clay, I had to tape small wooden letter stamps together.  That was a royal pain!  Then at a recent workshop Laurie Mika introduced us to a set of stamps that snap together!  What a concept!!!  I ordered two sets of two different sizes and it has made it much more possible for me to put messages in my work.  Here is a upcycled cigar box that shows how well these snap-together letters work.

Hi Tina! I'm having a lot of fun with these boxes. Every one is different so it never gets boring! I'd love to tell you the name of the letters but all the writing on the boxes is in Chinese! But I can tell you where and how to find them. I got them from Polymer Clay Express and you just have to do a search for "snap letters". It should pull up the different sizes. I do suggest that you get two sets of whatever size you get since so many words have double letters.
