Send Pretty Mail #11-15 - Kirigami Copies

How fun are these! I had the best kind of fun crafting this series of one-of-a-kind envelopes for the Elevated Envelope Exchange. Don't know about The Elevated Envelope? It's a fantastic mail art exchange created by Tara Bliven of Ephemera Press. Find out more here.

For each envelope, I first created a set of colourful kirigami paper cuts.

Then, colour copies of the kirigami are made into the envelopes...

Using an envelope template and a little washi tape.
Hand drawn address labels add a touch of whimsy.Index cards dressed up with some washi tape (how cute is the mt Bows tape?) make great coordinating notecards to slip inside.
And, for a finishing touch, a strip of glitter tape!Have you ever participated in a mail swap? I've found it to be a wonderful creative exercise plus you end up with a mailbox full of pretty things!Want to receive some pretty mail in YOUR mailbox? Send me a note at with your mailing address and a little something about yourself. I'll be making a list and choosing new friends to send mail to each month. And don't worry if you don't hear back from me right away - February & March are already full thanks to Mail Swaps.
