I send letters relatively often so recently I've been trying to get some interesting envelopes. But everything I found in local shops was too kitshy or normal. Then I found these A5 envelopes made of recycled paper and fell in love with them. I decided to make my own design Smiley
Finally I was inspired by Regina Spektor and her totally beautiful song (ehm.. ALL of her songs are totally beautiful) Two birds. Whenever I'm listening to it I imagine that little green and naive bird. So I made an envelop with it. And another. And another. Hehe Cheesy
I hope my friend will like her letters  Smiley

Thank you! I just cut them from coloured papers and contoured them with a black marker Smiley

I just found this post so I'm just a little late, but amazing job. I love that song (and Regina) and I think it translated really well into your envelope art!   Great job!
