Envelope Dioramas.

I have clearly become a little obsessed with all things mail these days, but seriously it has been so much fun getting back into writing letters and receiving beautiful things in my mail box each week!  Tonight I came home to my brand new postal kit freshly stamped and sent from Snap and Tumble and Send More Mail.  It is so beautiful, it's going to be hard to use it...as i just want to look at everything all together and never mark up the pages! I can't wait to post pics.
Now of course sending all of these letters had led me to stumble onto a new fun project, which i am naming 'envelope dioramas'.  The first of these 'dioramas' came into being when I was putting together a little mail art package for Jessica.
When I was looking through my things, it didn't seem like i had too much to send to her and thought it would be great to make a little themed package all about bears (as she loves bears).  The following photos are what came out of this experience.
It's sort of like a package of illustrations, which can be arranged to tell a story, or a little scene....essentially An Envelope Diorama.
I have since made a 'birds' diorama and an 'owls', both sent out to some friends who love these things.  I think my next 'envelope diorama' may need to have a wolf theme...

Done and done Tanya...unless you have a 'something' special you would rather see in diorama form. Also thanks saylormade...i hope to have pics of the owls soon!

Little letterpress machines would make for adorable dioramas too, but I'm totally down with the wolves.
