Originally I planned for the blog to be dedicated to these envelopes, however I got sucked in to all the aspects of mail art, so they often take a bit of a back seat.
Currently I'm up to number 890. This is what (part of) my box of homemade envelopes looks like right now, with envelopes waiting for the perfect stamp, or occasion:
And here are some recently sent ones.
Number 352 to Patricia (slightly shiny paper from a magazine)
Number 436 to Honi (matte paper from an arts flier)
Number 792 to Eva (thick paper from an old calendar)
And number 846 to Eric (from butcher's paper)
Have you ever made your own envelopes?
What materials would you choose, and what do you think would make a good envelope?
