One thing I have always loved to do is to write letters and notes to my friends. Even now that we have email, I still think there is something special about writing and receiving hand-written letters. So this week, I thought it would be fun to make my own letter set using some of our adorable kawaii stickers.
Handmade letter sets are a great way to personalise your mail, but they also make wonderful gifts for the letter-writers in your life. Perhaps you could make a collection of personalised writing paper with matching envelopes for a letter writer in your family this Christmas.
For this letter set, I wanted to make something cute, so I chose to use these Cute Happy Sea World kawaii stickers.
Other than that, all I needed was some plain white paper, two shades of blue ink and a line stamp to create this letter paper with matching envelope:
To create the letter paper, I cut a sheet of plain white paper to the desired size. I then inked the edges with light blue ink and set it aside to dry.
While I waited for it to dry, I used a scrap piece of paper to cut out an oval shape. I then placed it over the centre of my paper to cover the area that I wanted to keep white. I then smudged my second shade of blue ink all over the remaining exposed section to create a nice background.
I also used a line stamp to stamp in the lines for writing on. I left two little spaces in the lines though, so I could add the two small fish stickers.
When everything was dry, I decorated my new writing paper with my Cute Happy Sea World kawaii stickers to give this result:
Of course, writing paper also needs a matching envelope, so I made one out of another sheet of plain white paper.
I used the same technique as above with my two blue ink pads to create the blue background. I left a white rectangle in the bottom right corner so I can write an address there later. I then decorated the envelope with some more of my Cute Happy Sea World kawaii stickers.
And now I have an adorable letter set to write a letter to a friend. What could be more special than a hand-written note on paper made just for them?
