If you missed it the first time, you can find more information on this mail exchange project and the first round of packages on this post. The creativity continued with the second round of packages!
I was really busy during the second round of this mail exchange project and goofed. I put together my packages and then realized I never took a picture of the contents! Oops. Each package had a mini mixed paper journal with a flashcard cover and glassine envelope with ephemera to embellish. I kept the packaging simple, but wish I had taken a picture because I had some fun with string and liked the final results. I'll have to play with some more string on a package and share it another time.
This charming package came from Jamie of A Pair of Pears. I love the idea of including a small food item (tea, in this case) and pairing it with a coordinating recipe (for scones, in this case).
Emma from Our Paper Shop sent this fun pile of papers. I will, without question, be copying the handmade fringe / streamers idea!
Katy from K is for Calligraphy outdid herself with this box full of goodies. The painted box glows in the dark(!) and came with a "Made in Calif" stamp and vintage postcard from my town. I'm a sucker for personal touches like those.
Danni of Oh, Hello Friend used office supplies to package a bunch of fun stationery. She folded a large Inter-Department envelope in half and sewed around the edges. Another great idea to try out!
Dawn from Cut, Paper, Paste is missing this round because she's busy with a big move. Awesome inspiration from Dawn will be back for the next (and final) round.
Thanks again to all of these sweet and creative women for making checking the mail really, really fun!
