Send Pretty Mail # 18/19/20 - In The Garden


Who wouldn't want to receive flowers in their mailbox?

Pretty washi tape designs full of butterflies and flowers do all the hard work. Fold a bevy of origami butterflies for an extra surprise inside the envelope.


Cherry blossoms are (finally) blooming this week in Toronto - but a few weeks ago, in a fit of sakura jealousy as blossom pictures flooded the internet from Tokyo to Vancouver to Washington, I stamped up a storm to create a pretty blossom envelope. Perfect for a little springtime cheer.


A simple watercolour doodle from a DIY brainstorming session transformed into two pretty notecards. Simply fold and cut. Bonus points if you can find your bone folder & end up with a prettier fold!


Sometimes just a few strips of pretty washi and glitter tapes are all you need to take an envelope from humdrum to lovely! Oh, and if you're in the mood to craft up some paper cherry blossoms of your own, try our sakura kirigami tutorial.

Have you sent any pretty mail this spring?

Want to receive some pretty mail in YOUR mailbox? Send me a note at info@omiyage.ca 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 - if you send your info, you should find a pretty piece of mail headed your way some time this year!
