Mail Art

I am in a group that decorates envelopes and passes them around (via the postal system) until everyone has added art to the original envelope. We select a large envelope, choose a theme, decorate it a little, seal it up with cardboard inside, then mail it to the pre-determined person who will then add to it and send to the next person and so on. There have been several postal employees who really get into this and look forward to seeing the next arted up envelope. Today I got my "Paper Doll" envie back and it is just wonderful! Here are the front and back as the envie looked before it left my house:













And this is what it looks like now! I am so excited about it!




The little wardrobe opens up and tucked inside are some adorable little paper doll clothes - isn't this the sweetest thing! Like I said, I love it!

This is way cute! hmmm. maybe we could make paper dolls of ourselves and round robin them with clothes, perhaps each month having a theme?

This is really a fun concept, Jackie. I enjoyed seeing the transformation. Paper dolls sure are a great theme.
