Oh, Hello Mr. Postman

It’s February already?! This year is flying by! How was your weekend? Did you watch the Superbowl? My husband was while I was having fun decorating my handmade Valentine’s cards for the Handmade Valentine Swap by Lydnsey. I love participating in these blog swaps. It gives me a goal to work towards, and helps me meet more people from around the world! Remember you can be a part of Oh, Hello Mr. Postman by taking a photo of letters you send to your pen pals and use the hashtag #ohhellomrpostman to post it on Instagram!

So since I am making a handmade valentine for my next snail mail letter, I want to keep this one a surprise until she gets it! Be sure to check back later to see how it turned out.

The letter I do have for you today is going to Yuushiina (or Uce as her nickname) living in Indonesia. I asked her what her favorite color is, and she loves orange. I already had a plan of making washi tape stickers, and using my orange flowery washi tape was perfect. Check it out!

These were fun to make! Here’s a detailed shot of the stickers.

Want to learn how to make your own? Here is a tutorial from FactoryCraftDirect.com. I didn’t have any wax paper (I never really do) so I used the back of an empty sticker sheet I had. Reduce, reuse, recycle right? I didn’t have to line up my pattern since the flower pattern is pretty random. I used 2 strips of washi tape to get the width of the Fiskars punch I used. Since the shape is so delicate, I wanted to take off the sticker in 1 piece. The wax paper made it easy so I carefully took the backing off with the 2 pieces of washi tape still intact. Have fun making washi tape stickers!

And a 2×2 photograph. So, I want to see your handmade Valentines too! Hashtag ’em with #ohhellomrpostman Have a lovely Monday!

Jamie
