You can decorate your mail with napkins!
Donovan had a few different packets of Halloween napkins and showed us how to use them. You should peel off the top most layer to use for the mail art. I believe she used a glue stick to glue them to the envelope, but I was a bit concerned that they would come off, so when I tried it at home I covered them with clear packing tape too. :)
|This one is a bit messy, but I like the end product and sometimes it's fun to be messy and it's therapeutic to just not worry about the wrinkles!|
In this one I cut out the image from the napkin. It's still a bit wrinkly but I think it looks a bit cleaner.
I'm excited to do this more! It's fun to get pretty napkins sometimes (to eat with) and one napkin normally has 4 images because of the way that they are folded, so they are real work horses in terms of mail art equipment!
I also liked the Jazz stamp for my Halloween mail since it has a nice orange, black and grey color scheme.
Oh, and in the last envelope, in the lower left hand corner I had tried to draw a bat and it came out looking terrible! So I just slapped on some Charlie Brown stickers. Mail art is always salvageable. :)
