One letter at a time: Make every paper count

Dear friends,

Welcome to the final post of my one-letter-at-a-time series.

It's been a month since I began this project and hopefully, the seeds of the #oneletteratatime movement have inspired those who were reading to start making something with hands and pairing with positive words to encourage their loved ones during this stay home period.

Part 3: One letter at a time: Make every drop of blue pea count

The last part of this project is to make an envelope with leftover papers by patching them together. I made a total of 13 envelopes mainly from scraps and was ready to send them to my friends in Singapore and overseas.

I like how every scrap has its own unique shape, patching them together to become a new lease of life. It's full of character and stories. I selected a list of my friends who I think would like to receive a handwritten letter, and I randomly selected an envelope + inspirational quotes to pair them with.

As a designer, I am very particular about the overall aesthetic of any project that I am working on. Even simple things like the type of stamps that I use to mail to my friends, need to carry a subtle sustainable message - reconnect with nature.
Again, do feel free to try this project or share this with your friends who you feel might like to experiment on their own too.

Mailing you my love,
