When the weather is so bad you can’t even shovel the driveway, the perfect way to pass time is to read, or craft. I chose the latter today and here are some of the results;
Firstly, I rummaged through an old National Geographics I’d bought at a thrift store and collected quite a few cute, interesting and powerful images. I used this one of a milkman in the London streets during WWII and collaged it onto one of my larger sized envelopes and added a few messy lines around the contour. It was simple, easy, and looks great. It may be one of those crafts I end up stashing away forever.
Next up, I made a handful of envelopes from a variety of things.
I finished working on what was originally meant to be a simple doodle but that actually turned out quite nicely.
And finally, using the leftover scraps of scrapbook paper, I made a handful of mailing tags/ gift labels. I more or less laminated one side with wide clear tape to make them somewhat more resistant to tearing and water damage. I scribbled some rough edging around them to give them more of a finished looked instead of just cut paper and I’m really pretty happy with the final result. With a bit of practice and a clean working space I might consider popping a few of them onto Etsy just to see! 🙂
