Is there anything better than getting snail mail? Yes...getting cute, hand-made snail mail! So I'm going to show you a fun way to add a little summer surprise to the next mail you send out. You’ll need some watercolor or mixed media paper, Tombow Dual Brush Pens, a paintbrush and water, Tombow Mono Drawing Pen, scissors and Tombow Mono Adhesive + Permanent.
We’re going to make our own envelopes with summer-themed decorations on the inside, so the recipient gets a fun surprise when they open it up! Gently open up an old envelope to use as a template, and measure out your watercolor paper to the right size. Fill the paper with ice-cream cones, watermelon slices, pineapples, or anything else that makes you think of summer, using your Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Then with a paintbrush wet the ink to blend it together and get a watercolor look. Once the ink is dry draw cute little faces or add details with your Mono Drawing Pen.
To finish off your envelopes cut your paper using your envelope template, fold in the sides and glue the bottom three together with your Mono Adhesive + Permanent. Write a letter, or make a cute card to go inside and your fun summer envelopes are ready to be sent! Leave a comment and tell me who you’re going to send some cute mail to this summer!
