Album Ideas

Gift album: garden of stamps

Have a friend or parent who is into gardening? Collect U.S. and
worldwide flower stamps. Alternate pages of stamps with pages of gardening tips and facts about the flowers on the stamps. (Do some library research to find the gardening information.) What a great gift for a gardener!

Into space and sci-fi?

Collect all of the great space exploration and science stamps. Write a chilling sci-fi thriller story and put it into the center of your album. Or draw the space creatures of your imagination.

Are you a leader? Do you care about freedom and America?

Collect a whole album of U.S. presidents and other world leaders. Maybe your face will be on a stamp one day! (Mount a small mirror on your last page!)

Love the idea of travel and adventure?

Collect stamps that celebrate the 50 U.S. states or that come from exotic places like Belize, Iceland, Samoa, and Zimbabwe. (Can you find them on a map?)

You can create a stamp collection about almost anything. Let the stamps be your guide. You can follow them to learn about birds, flowers, animals, trains, airplanes, holidays, flags, sports, music, movies…the list goes on and on!
