With a scrap of wood, salvaged styrofoam, and a little bit of glue, the women at St. Patrick Center and the Center for Women in Transition crafted custom stamps to personalize their handmade stationery.

We showed them how to make their own envelopes from scrap paper, and one participant said “I won’t have to buy envelopes ever again!” It’s true. We can make so much of what we need from what some consider trash!
