Here is a little craft I want to leave you with, before our break. This won't take too much of your time, except the letter (of course).
This envelope or folder or holder, I still don't know its name exactly, fits perfectly in a 23 x 16 cms envelope. It does have to go in another envelope otherwise it won't make it in one piece, (redundant, I know) but I'm pretty sure your pen pal will love it so much!
You will need:
- A doily cut in half (for the upper and lower flaps)
- A piece of thick paper measuring 21 x 14 cms
- 2 pieces of paper (for the right and left flaps) measuring 21 x 7 cms each
- Extra pieces of paper for the inside pouches
- and washi-tape
When you open the" holder of things" you will find; a letter, tea, and a quote.
The left side holds the tea, the right side the quote, plus the date (very important for us pen pals)
This is how the back looks. Not too much decoration, but you're welcome to.
The doily is from Talking Tables, the bird paper used for the envelope is from Sukie, and the one for the letter is from Uguisu, one of my favorite web stores!!
We'll be back in a week or maybe two. My older one will be on vacation for 15 days (yes 15!!), and we are trying to figure out, how to best entertain a 2 year old and an 11 year old together. Quite, quite difficult sometimes.
Wishing you much creativity and craftiness!!
