A home for my art doll

I had great fun creating a "home" for my art doll, (see below). This was made out of a padded envelope and will become the folder in which I will send her to whoever will get her as this is for a swap. The idea for this was not my own but Constancet's. I asked her permission and she was happy for me to use her idea. Mine looks quite different but you can find her fantastic work on her flickr

This is the folder open:


This is the front when the folder is closed with a place for the address


And this is the back where you can see how the folder closes:

I wonder what the postman will think, - I have sent my altered envies through the post but never anything as big as this, but apparently Constance does it all the time and I have to say I have received some amazing mail art from her in the past.

I'd be so very excited if I received a package such as this! This had to be very time consuming. There is no resemblance to a plain packing envelope here at all. It is just phenomenal!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
