The Envelope Project

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my Privacy and Disclosure Notice for more information.

The Envelope Project is asking people from all over to send an envelope stuffed with something (photos, pages from magazines, ribbon, swap cards, vintage patterns, notes, shopping lists,  little (lightweight!) zines, sweet wrappers, stickers, really) to be displayed in a window at Meet Me at Mike’s.

But that’s not all! They are taking pictures of each item and posting them on Flickr, saving all of the items and their envelopes and will draw one winner at the end to win EVERYTHING that was sent in. How cool is that?! They are also updating their blog with some of the photos.

The project started on June 14 and continues for six weeks which puts it at July 26, 2010 for the end date. Since this is going to Australia, you may want to get your package in the mail soon. Good Luck! I need to start looking through my stash to see what to send. I will post pictures when I do. I hope you do too (and let me know).

    Sounds like a fun project. Speaking of creative mail, I just posted about the creative letter I got from a pen friend that you will enjoy.
