The art of letter writing is being lost in this age of email and IM-ing. Spend some time writing a letter to someone and then mail it. Here are some ideas to make your letters extra pretty:
• Photocopy a favorite photograph and write you letter on the back
• Write each paragraph in a different pen color
• Write a short note to your friend each day for a week. Number the notes, and send them off. Instruct your reader top open a letter a day, and then ask her to repeat the process with you.
• Go rubber stamp crazy and make your own hand-stamped stationery. Even the most no-frills craft store has hundreds of cute and quirky stamps and a rainbow of ink pads. It's crafting at its easiest.
• Doodle like mad!
I have a huge collection of stickers, colored pens, postage stamps, and japanese tape! I like to decorate the envelopes so when someone sees it in their mailbox they know they have something fun waiting to be opened! I like to make my own stationery (notecards and envelopes) as well!
Do you have any other ideas? How do you make your letters extra pretty?
