snail mail mini book tutorial
When I started writing all the letters this year, I didn't expect to get much in return. I know snail mail isn't for everyone. In fact, I've sometimes wondered if my friends think I'm a total weirdo for sending them something in the mail. After all, emojis don't really translate in writing. But the response has been really great, and I've actually been paying closer attention to the mail coming through our door. Most of it is still junk and bills, but we actually get a decent amount of great mail.
I'm using a 3-ring chipboard binder (roughly 7 x 9 inches) and a hole punch so I can insert the cards (and some of the envelopes) directly in the album.
I'm definitely putting personal letters in this album, but I also find I'm keeping beautiful packaging or collateral that comes with some of the stationery I've ordered this year. I love some of these pretty little things, like the letterpressed white bag pictured below from Moglea.
Hopefully this little album will be filled with snail mail goodness at the end of the year, but if not, maybe I'll write a letter to myself every once in awhile!
Do you keep letters and cards?
