I first signed up for the Creative Pen Pal swap at One Crafty Mumma, and then delved in deeper into the pen pal world by signing up for a couple of quilting pen pal groups. I am loving it! It’s so exciting to get a handwritten letter in the mail, and it’s fun writing letters. And of course it’s just another excuse to play with paper! I have a adorable letter paper pad, but sometimes, I just want to try making some too. The best thing is you can use any plain paper – lined, graph, plain – and whatever stickers and tape you have lying around!
This one uses some washi tape cut into banners/flags, and I used a sticker to embellish.
Here I used some washi to line one edge, and then use a clear acrylic sticker to coordinate with the pretty rainbow washi.
This one used one of my favourite washi – a scallop lace print! And the green bow? Actually a sticky note! I just added some extra glue to make sure it didn’t come off.
I’ve been collecting a few inspirational ideas to try on Pinterest on my Creative Pen Pals board – check them out!
