"hi everyone! i'm connie from daydream in color and i'm the excited guest host of today's mail art monday post.
in the last few months, my two best friends have moved into new places with their respective significant others. i have yet to visit them in their new homes, but i thought it'd be nice to send them a sweet housewarming gift until they get settled so that even though there's much work to be done, they can feel at home with something on their walls.
found here. then, i had my silhouette cut out each of the components, my friend chandra was set to get pink and ivory, and chris was going to get dark and baby blue. however, i ended up making four because i figured it wouldn't hurt to have some spares on hand. i also made one in red + tan and yellow + orange.
i glued each letter onto the opposite color with my tape runner. i like to use an old catalog, magazine or phone book for this since i usually glue past the paper edge to ensure maximum glue coverage. once a page is filled with sticky glue, just flip to the next page to continue gluing!
i thought it'd be fun for my friends to unravel the bunting message to read it when they got the package. so i cut out some leftover cardboard in the shape of embroidery thread bobbins to wind the bunting onto. i labelled the start, so they wouldn't tangle the twine as they unraveled it.
i hope you enjoyed this little diy and mail art post. thank-you so much kaitlyn, for letting me be a guest on your lovely blog. i hope ya'll will stop by daydream in color and say hello!
hugs & love,
