Todays Advent Calendar Offer (valid until midnight tonight) is something for the stationery lover or the writer of letters. Cheer yourself up, cheer up the postie and put a smile on the face of the person you are writing a letter to – if you still write letters…
Envelopes in tons of different styles and colours are on offer in my shop today!
I’ve always loved receiving letters in the post and even more so when the packaging is something original and different that makes the letter stand out from the crowd of boring white envelopes containing bank statements etc.
When I was younger I used to spend hours painting and decorating envelopes and sent them on their way full of love letters to boyfriends (sealed with a kiss of course), or long missives to friends. I was always delighted when I got something back in the post that was equally creative.
There was a period of time that I made them from the pages of magazines too, but I then tranformed that idea into my gift bags – there’s a tutorial here.
Now I make envelopes that appeal to most people – I use vintage maps and music, but the most popular designs are the envelopes made from children’s annuals like Bunty for Girls, Victor for Boys, Beano etc. I’ve even got some strictly Scottish ones made from the pages of The Broons.
These packs of envelopes would make perfect stocking fillers.
All envelopes 11.5cm by 15.5cm and come in packs of 5 with 5 blank address labels. Just like ordinary envelopes, they also have lick and stick flaps. They’re packaged in biodegradable bags.
