I cannot tell a lie, one of my least favorite things to do is to go to the post office...hate is a better word for it....So, it is always a happy day when I get something off and on its way. Last week I sent a package to my niece in California.
The box included tons of confetti I made for her wedding party invitations .... That's all that had to go, but I added some little extras.
First, I made a 6x9 three ring binder from scratch .... The ribbon below is just to hold it together for shipping.
I made an envelope, pen holder, pens and booklets to go with the binder ... all black and white so they go together....
All I did for the chevron and polka dot pen/pencil was insert straws in the barrels.
The only thing that was actually "doodled" was the label for the box. I printed the name and address with an existing font (Cantoni Basic) onto an 8.5"x11" kraft label, then I added bits and pieces to Mattie's name and doodled the frame ... with a little creature peaking over the corner.
I shifted the uppercase letters down and added swishes...covered up the existing crosses of the t's and connected the the t's at the bottom.
The black and white check is just duct tape...lots of it.
