DIY Letter Writing Set

Hey everyone, hope you are all well. Today I have this beautiful Letter Writing Set.

I really enjoyed putting this together and the idea came about from me living so far away from home and how nice it is to receive letters and cards instead of emails and text messages.

I started by making the envelopes first with my pretty oriental papers and then the rest evolved from there.

5.3/4 x 8.1/4 patterned paper to decorate the front of your file.

My Circle Dies are from The Works I used the 2 largest ones measuring 4.1/2 & 4

My Unbranded Flower dies are from Ebay but any decoration will work for this project.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made this project.

I love writing letters and feel that we must continue doing so, I love technology and how easy it makes are day to day lives but having letters to hold and remember memories and those special people you write to is priceless.

Hope you enjoyed this sweet project and remember to share your makes on my Facebook page.

Happy crafting
