Today I am sharing a few ways to elevate the lost art of letter writing into a stylish event.
I think the reason I love anything that has to do with pretty papers and pens lately is my trip to Walmart last week. It seems I can’t pass by the pen aisle without finding one I just have to have, especially this time of year. It makes me feel like I am a kid getting a fresh start getting ready for back-to-school.
I am testing out my new pens on very unique to make yourself envelopes.
No. 1 – Envelope Templates
Aren’t they cute? You can download the templates over at Camille Styles. All you need is paper and pens and don’t stop at thinking you can only use computer printer paper…
.. why not try making one of these envelopes with scrapbook paper, leftover wall paper, gift wrap, or maps.
No. 2 – The Lettermate
Once you have your envelopes made, I have been using this…. Lettermate to address them. I read about it on Pinterest and had to have it. :-)
I have been practicing using it with my colorful Walmart purchase….a set of colorful gel pens. Seeing all the colors puts a smile on my face. I also bought a white opaque pen to use when addressing dark color envelopes.
The Lettermate makes addressing an envelope in a fancy way… doable for anyone, even if you don’t have pretty handwriting. I printed out the how-to guide which shows a dozen ways to use the template.
If you still like to send cards and letters through the mail I think you will enjoy making these to send your correspondence in style.

Do you love pens and paper as much as I do? What is your favorite pen to use? Is it a ball point, gel, or a marker?
