Little Letters // DIY

September 12, 2012

This second term, our batch is having our annual "Recollection" where it's a day that we have no academic subjects 
and we basically grow closer to God and our classmates. Traditionally, we would make recollection letters (reco 
letters) for our friends in other classes or our classmates. This year I wanted to put a little 'craft' and 'eco-friendly'ness
 in mine instead of merely scribbling down words on an intermediate paper and giving it to them as it is. 

Things you'll need: 
- Recycled/Brown Paper
- Scissors
- Ballpen, Pencil
- Index Cards
- Glue or tape
- Other Art Materials

 So first, I got the index card, wrote my friends' names and cut them out, you can go as crazy and creative you'd
like in this part, but in this case I just used a ball pen. Teehee.
Next, I got the brown paper (bag) and cut it out a little smaller than the regular bond paper. After making some
lines with my pencil, I wrote--and drew--my messages to my friends. Then, I followed this envelope-origami that I
found over here. It's a bit confusing, but I got it after a while :)
I also altered the last part and just decided to leave the top flap open, and then I glued the index cards on the envelope!
Viola, a simple, easy and eco-friendly way to send letters, or notes, to your friends and family!
This short post is short, but I really just wanted to share this with you all, you can go as crazy/creative as you'd like!
 have a happy weekday, everyone :)

  5. This is such a cute idea, but I don't know if I'd have the patience for the envelope origami :)
