I'm excited to share the pretty envelope that Michelle made for me for our Air Mail Art Swap. When Michelle posted pictures of her air mail collection, I stared at the pictures over and over. She has such a great collection.
I have a bunch of vintage air mail envelopes with their original letters, a few labels, and that's about it. I'm keeping my eyes peeled to see if I can find more airmail goodies after doing this swap.
Michelle made me this beautiful envelope (this is the front): (and the back):
I had made Michelle this box first, but when I accepted that it was lost (it was taking too long), I made her another one. Then when it made its way to her, I already had another one made for her, so she got two of a very similar box.
I'm glad they look a little different though:
This is the box from other angles:There's something about that red, white, and blue color scheme that gets me.
