I have one friend who every year, without fail, sends me a birthday card that arrives exactly on the day, no matter where I live. I don’t know how she does it, but I wanted to take a leaf out of her book and make a bit more of an effort myself. So for the past couple of months, I've been making a conscious effort to remember people’s birthdays and to send them a little something in the post. I love surprising people with post, and what better occasion than birthdays?
And to personalize my post a little bit, I decided to make my own wrapping paper. I recently got several rolls of generic brown wrapping paper from my mother, so I decided to take a couple of those rolls and add a bit of pattern with a bit of acrylic paint and the back of a pencil. Might make some more with some simple lino cut stamps?
