We've recently received some pretty sweet mail from friends and family.
Sticker-covered brown packages.
Scribbled notes on gorgeous stationery, often sealed with washi tape.
Who doesn't love a good piece of real, hold-it-in-your-hands-with-not-option-to-click-forward-or-delete snail mail?
It's a lost art.
So I've been doing my research.
(You know, on Pinterest, where all scientific research is done.)
I thought if I shared some of my findings, we'd all be inspired to be more thoughtful, and send a handwritten note or package today!
And here's the challenge:
I'm going to start sending some fun mail and taking pictures. Will YOU ALSO send some fun and/or pretty mail, and send me the pictures to post on my blog? We'll all inspire each other!
This is gorgeous. Brown craft paper looks fantastic with simple gel-pen doodles and an artistic collage of pretty stamps.
I've noticed many people purposely buy lower-value stamps so they can paste more of them along the envelope like a mini-gallery.
(Note to self: Must buy pretty stamps!)
I want this bird stamp! What a stunning package.
I love this blog. It's filled with package ideas... but it's not in English. :)
Pictures are worth a thousand words, right?
Can you tell I love brown craft paper?
But I'm also a fan of color.
Those little houses are made of washi tape!
One more fun idea for you... how about mailing items that ARE NOT in an envelope or box? There's a blog called Giver's Log that shows you all kinds of uncoventional items that can be popped into the mail. Click here, or browse below:
Now go send some mail!
