Let's make mail together! Let's make envelopes out of scrap paper! Let's transform anything into mail art for our loved ones! To relax and get my mind of off things, I make packages and envelopes and mail art for friends and loved ones who life far away and in my city. Suggested materials: scrap paper/newspaper, tape or glue, stamps, pen, scissors.
