I was not sure how to approach this Snail Mail project, so I began by finding a 8″×8″ card-stock and adding to it found objects.
First, I tore to shreds an old card, and I glued the pieces around the border of the card-stock. Next, I located a nifty paper punch that cuts out bird shapes. I found some decorative paper then punched out a flock of birds to place on the blue page. I decided to add a little wooden stick , and embroidery thread to the little red lantern on the top left corner of the page. Then sprinkled itty bitty greenish-blue marbles to the page and finished it off with red paint and high gloss varnish. This was to be the first page.
On the second page, I added a little business card and repeated the bird and lantern motif. From a magazine I cut letters to create a word phrase.
And on the back of each page is a little hand written letter for readers to enjoy.
