Sydney based crafter Cathrine believes that envelopes can be as special as what is inside, as it's the first thing your hands touch and sets up an immediate impression. As a stationery buff, I happen to agree! Using some beautiful vintage and contemporary storybooks, Cathrine creates unique and quirky envelopes for you to send your mail in style. Many of them are pre-coloured pages but she has also created some colourable ones too, which is even better as it has a more personalised quality that your family and friends will really appreciate.
Her envelopes come in packs of 8-16, and are shipped worldwide. Here is her selection of Christmas-themed pieces.
Each one lays flat for easy colouring, which you can then assemble into an envelope with the included self-adhesive strips. The charming designs have a real sense of nostalgia that look simply stunning when coloured. If you've been thinking of incorporating your colouring into Christmas gifts this year, start here! The envelopes are 15.5 x 11cm (around A6), perfect for making your own greetings cards or finding some in-store which fit (most are around this size).
Here is one of my finished envelopes. I can't wait to send it out! I used alcohol markers and Wink of Stella glitter brushes (more about those soon!), to give the effect of twinkling snow :)
I was given these products in exchange for an honest review. You can find Cathrine's whole range on her Etsy shop. Shipping to the UK is approximately £4, and to the US around $6. Contact Cathrine to confirm before ordering.
