Hi friends. Today it's back to school and back to work for our family. I've got lots of fun items going up in my Etsy shop...including this adorable Air Mail Kit I have to show you today. I have become intrigued by these Air Mail envelopes that I came upon recently. I love the colors and and the stripes and they remind of a long lost love letter from overseas perhaps.
I gathered up a tray full of postage themed supplies, fabrics, tapes, twine and doilies and let my mind wander. How about these great vintage postage stamps?
I used them on some small white tags from my Etsy shop along with embossed, red images. Am loving all the post mark stamps I can find too.
My stamps I used are a mixy matchy combo from Papertrey, Inque Boutique and Crafty Secrets. I love the look of embossing right over the postage stamp. These would make great little gift tags just by themselves.
And I just couldn't stop making them.
So I decided to offer up some kits in my Etsy shop. Using a new Heart Paper Doily, some fabric and a torn piece of ledger paper, I stitched together the layers. Back and forth in my messy stitch style.
Then I layered them onto an Air Mail Envelope and tied up the little bundle with Air Mail Baker's Twine and Red Wrinkle Ribbon. Love. A little snippet of blue Japanese Masking Tape finishes off the envelope.
I think these will be the ultimate Valentine envelope. Tuck a sweet note inside or stuff with flat, wrapped candies or candy bars. Who wouldn't want to receive a love letter like this??
I think the fun color combo is so unique for Valentine's Day this year. Hope you enjoy! I'll have a limited number of these kits and many other items up in the shop soon. :)
