cloth envelopes for the postcards

These cloth "envelopes" were inspired by the original set of Soulemama postcards I purchased a year or more ago. They came in a rustic cloth rectangle of two contrasting vintage fabrics--a different one on each side. It was raw-edged and untrimmed and I thought it was a charming presentation. These are the same, with contrasting prints or solids on each side, although I have fewer vintage fabrics--these are just scraps from the scrap basket.
Here are some of the new selection of postcards. I hope my family members, who will be receiving these as gifts (in the buckets) like these! At least they are consumable--just write them up, put on a stamp, and stick them in the mail. Ideally they would spark a little revolution of personal correspondence! I ordered a set of 60 postcards and they are all different. That is fun, I think.



All 60 postcards are now packaged in their little envelopes and ready to go into the buckets. One more thing done early before the holidays. Hooray!

What a great idea. Where did you get your postcards printed?

Mary Beth said...

UK lass--I had them printed from Moo. There is a link from flickr'. It's very easy because they link to your flickr'site so there is no additional uploading.

I've been choosing my photos to have printed too! Well, your way ahead of me since yours are already printed-but they look great!

(I found your blog through Souelmama. :))
