I recently sent some snail mail and I had been thinking for quite a while that it would be nice to make some bookmarks to send since they would fit into a snail mail package really easily.
I began by just colouring a few sheets of white card stock with gelatos and then painted and blended the colours together. Then cut the paper into about 6 inches x 2 inches to crate the bookmarks.
On some separate paper I drew some cute little things and glued them on to the bookmarks then laminated them and added ribbon.I drew some of the same images on the snail mail letter and painted them with watercolours.
Snail Mail is such a lovely fun thing to do, I'm so glad that I have an amazing pen pal. I've been thinking lately that I would love to send some snail mail to some other people I know just because it is so nice to get something happy in the mail.
I wrapped up some choccies and some tea and coffee to go with the bookmarks and letter with some blue tissue paper and a project life card tucked in there and posted it all off.
