I love these postcards from Flexa paint. I like the colors and the funny names for each paint color. Stylish pink is one of my favorites! I made these cards for a pen pal. Just to tell her something about myself in a different way. I liked them so much that I thought I'd make a blog post of it. Hope it will give you some ideas and inspiration! See for details below.

D.I.Y: Make your own closing stickers

To stay a while in the spring flowers I made these closing stickers. If you want to make it yourself, here's a short tutorial:
  1. Take a sheet of stickers. I used round white stickers with a diameter of 3,5 centimeters.
  2. Choose three paper flower punches in successive measurements. Punch the flowers from colored paper. I used paper paint samples from the hardware store. 
  3. Stick the flowers with a glue dot on the sticker. Go from big to small. I used several sizes of glue dots. 
Of course you can create countless variations of these closing stickers. Use different stickers, different paper and paper punches with different motives. Stick them on letters, gifts, bags and snailmail. Have fun!

Little box of post (3)

In the series "Little boxes of..." I made a new little box. It is the " Little box of post! It contains: a little carrier pigeon with a note, 10 stamps, 10 closing stickers, 10 little letter envelopes and a garland with the text "Email is good but post & parcels are much better". I send it to Ruchama of the Postfabriek

Wreath of paper flowers


This wreath is inspired by the book "FĂȘtes en papier" of Adeline Klam. I have not read the book yet, but the cover is very promising! The shape of the wreath is made of cardboard. Stick the flowers on it with glue dots. Some flowers have four different layers. For the heart of the flowers you can use here and there a glitter stone. Some flowers are folded. See here for instructions diy fleurs papier adeline klam. The rest of the flowers are made ​​with different paper punches. For the small flowers I used paper of paint samples that are free to get at hardware stores.
