mail art | pretty in pink paint chips

i've owed my friend shawna a letter for awhile now but i've been so busy with holiday stationery orders. when j and i were at the hardware store the other day i stealthily snagged a bunch of these beautiful pink paint chips. i made an envelope* out of some of them and then wrote my letter on the rest! i also included a little surprise for her impending birthday celebration...

* can i write an address like that? will it still get delivered if each word is on a different line?


  1. I love your art and mail art challenge.. great idea! I have a mail art exchange on my blog here,

  2. i just mailed your birthday present! lol. hopefully the address label sticks on for the whole delivery!!

  3. I blogged about you today! http://www.bonitarose.com/2011/11/mr-mailman.html

  4. i think it should still post...all they really need is the zip code isn't it?

    looks amazing..i always sneak out these colour charts but i never really know what to do with it, thanks :)

  5. That is such a cute idea! And I think it'll still get delivered, I don't see why not.

  6. Aw, this is so sweet & pretty! I'm sure your friend will looove it when it arrives. :)

  7. This is so neat! I always love seeing paint chips used in interesting ways.
