Sewn Paper


When I receive a card in the mail - with my name carefully printed on the envelope and the stamp often lopsided - I get really really excited. I feel like I did when I was six years old and couldn't wait for the mailman to drop off the contents of his bag into our mailbox. It brings me back to a time when I didn't know that the mail could contain anything other than a personalized letter, when the thought of bills and credit card payments were a foreign concept.

I love the idea below because it adds an extra personal twist to whomever you are reaching out to via snail mail. Whether it's a love note to your significant other, a thank you to your future in-laws or a card to the bridesmaid who talked you down from a wedding panic attack - these hand sewn cards ooze love... even before you write your personalized message.

  6. I agree there is nothing like a personalised letter in the mail!! These are adorable! Having penpals when I was a kid was my favourite thing... all those lovely stamps and stickers we used!! Ahhh
