Hi friends! This project is for days when you are high on creative desire but short on time! I’ll show you 5 ways to fancify your correspondence with limited supplies!
And please share the fabulous ways YOU have to decorate envelopes in the comments below, we’d love to learn from each other!
Watch the video to learn how! Each techniques takes less than 5 minutes and I think I can spend an extra 5 minutes to make someone smile, that is a great investment IMHO:)

Follow the directions in the video to make you very own envelope mail art!
1. Draw a ribbon banner and write the address in the ribbons!
2. Place a strip of masking tape down and splatter paint over it. Remove the tape and write in the box left behind.
3. Stamp around a piece of masking tape or post it note.
4. Create a scene on the bottom of your envelope.
5. Use frames or container stamps to make a spot for writing addresses.
6. Use colored hot glue, embossing powder or sealing wax to make an envelope seal! The hot wax won’t hurt your stamp but I recommend inking it up with pigment ink or glycerin first so it doesn’t stick.
I hope you enjoyed this fun and quick tutorial! Have a great weekend and til next time happy crafting!
