This sounded like the perfect little craft project for a public holiday, so after I had my porridge and coffee this morning I got to work! The Flying Ducks entry for the Envelope Project contains:
Sons and Daughters promo flyer from a few years ago
Page ripped out of a very old sub-editing handbook
Pipecleaner saying 'hello'
Some cute pieces of notepaper
Some little buttons
Green dart shaft
Puffy pink bird sticker
Coathanger paperclip from Kikki-K
Green paper crane made by me
...all inside a Gumby envelope!
Gumby and Pokey are now all sealed up with alphabet tape and ready for their flight to Melbourne!
I hope Pip decides to run this project again. It's a lot of fun, and it's lovely to see what other people come up with. In fact, I'd like to see a variation on the project in the future - an envelope swap! Sort of like the old-fashioned chain letters that your mum used to participate in (you know, send a pair of fancy knickers to the person at the top of the list and add your name to the bottom, and you'll end up with 2 million pairs of fancy knickers - but just a straight swap version). This way, everyone gets to peek inside an envelope!
Thanks to Meet Me at Mikes for my fun little crafty distraction for today!
