I have always been fascinated with the idea of all the old love letters and other mail that crossed the oceans during the World Wars. I love getting letters and I love to think about all the beautiful words and heartfelt sentiments that were in all those old air mail envelopes. When I saw these free air mail envelope downloads, I knew right away I wanted to use one to create a bulletin board. (By the way, they also have some really cool old post card downloads).
I used Citra Solv to transfer the postage onto some linen fabric and then covered an old canvas from a yard sale with it. I added the red and blue design to the edges and that was it. A pretty simple project.
Has anyone else done any vintage mail inspired projects? Any other great ideas? I’d love to hear them.
