Decorating Envelopes

Who says receiving letters in the mail shouldn't be fun?! 
For those of you that don't know me, one of my favorite things of all time is Snail Mail- I loooove sending & receiving letters! My love for writing letters started back in the 4th grade when our class was assigned pen pals! I was partnered with a girl my age named Erin who lived in Austin, Texas! I instantly fell in love with the art of letter writing! A lot of my classmates, wrote to their partners once or twice throughout the school year, but Erin & I, we wrote religiously! I remember receiving letters & postcards from her once a week, sometimes twice a week! Fast forward 17 years later & we still keep in touch. We don't write as much anymore, but we do keep in touch through email & text message! My love for letters have stuck with me throughout the years!

Lately, I have really been into decorating envelopes! I think it's a fun way to be crafty & creative... Also, it makes receiving letters all the more fun! Here are a few ways that I enjoy decorating my letters! 
What I used: "Brown Bag" Envelopes by Paper Accents, Washi Tape, Bear Memo Sheets, Double Sided Tape, Scissors & Sharpie Pen

What I used: "Brown Bag" Envelopes by Paper Accents, Paper Lace Doilies, Double Sided Tape & Washi Tape

What I used: Plain White Envelopes, Washi Tape & Scissors
