Sugar Skull envelopes!

Halloween! My favorite holiday after Christmas. These envelopes were simple, just a white pen with embellishments (don’t worry postmen, the actual address is easy to read) and of course, rose stickers. Always lots of rose stickers.

The fun thing about sugar skulls is you can fill em up with anything, so I wrote the recipients name in it. Gotta add a touch of macabre for the season.
