I Can See Clearly Now...
What is it about clear envelopes? I just love them. In this letter that I sent to my friend Amelia, I also added a bit of shimmer confetti. I went easy here, as I didn't want it to hamper the USPS from being able to read the address. Here is a great way to send a wax seal, twine, and other embellishments through the postal system in a "kinder and gentler " way that won't have the postal employees fretful and charging you lots of money for the external cuties you put on your envelopes. I have a secret I want to share with you about how you can get clear envelopes for FREE! ( Well...sort of!)
I use quite a few of these sticker packs as I decorate my mailers for my Etsy store for outgoing orders. What I noticed is, this clear packaging for the stickers are the same dimensions as a legal envelope! All you need to do is to slip out the card stock backing of the stickers, and you now have a nice clear envelope for your snail mail! So don't throw away your sticker packaging, up cycle them in your next cool snail mail project.
Here is some "sweet" bag mail that went out to Beth!
This has embellishments that would NEVER make it through the postal system....so again, if it is something you want to share with the world...then go ahead and put it into a clear cello self seal bag. , then attach your postage and away it goes.
I love ETSY! This is the dimensions for the self seal cello bags that I purchased through this Etsy shop. The above "sweet" bag mail was sent in this size cello bag. This shop has super fast service and these bags can be used for a multitude of projects.
Go forth and send pretty snail mail!
