Making sticker envelopes

More sticker envelopes! I just love making these. The envelopes look super cheerful, I get to use stickers (it’s a childhood thing, don’t ask) and I get to decorate stuff. I could do this all day!

The very first thing I do is apply the postage stamp of course. It sets the ‘tone’ I want to achieve.. but usually I use super colorful and bright stamps and stickers anyway. Then I add the stickers, from largest to the smallest. Then I add scrapbook stamps on the sides, and the calligraphy in the middle. I also use Microns or Sharpies to draw designs if needed, in this case a border and vines around the address. When the calligraphy is done, I add more tiny stickers around the space, and finally some glitter glue or washi tape. It’s super fun, try it!
