I like to think I am a pretty creative person, so when I send letters I like to spruce up the envelopes with anything I can. Which, after the daunting task of thinking of fun things to pack into an envelope, can be pretty daunting indeed. Sometimes I just write extra p.s.’s (p.s.’?) all over when I don’t feel like being overly clever, but sometimes you have a flash of brilliance (and thanks to How About Orange for said flash of inspirado) and decided to pre-pro envelopes and goodies.
I started to pull out my pens and realized that with just a tad bit more effort, I could really make some ridiculous mail art. So I pulled out a few more things:
If you really want to go out there, you can also peruse rittai konen’s mail art and see if you can top her mailable hair postcard.
If you’re a little stuck for an imaginative way to send photos, you can turn them into polaroids with photojojo’s polapostcards!
Birthday card not cutting it for a long-distance partier? How about a pinata in the mail!
