Mail Art! Send 💌 With Household Materials
Gather your materials and find a small cardboard box (like a pasta or cake box)
1
Deconstruct your box and find a section that is 4 x 6 inches
2
Cut out your 4x6 inch piece (that’s the size of a standard postcard)
3
Draw a line dividing your postcard. On the left side you can write your message & on the right...
4
...leave room for a stamp & write your pen pal’s name and address!
5
Flip your postcard over and design the other side!
6
I’m going to draw a Polaroid photo of my brother & I from Christmas last year
7
Did you know that you can peel back the colored layer from a box without ruining it?
8
This is my youngest brother, Joe. His birthday is coming up!
9
And now a quick self portrait...
10
Now some attention to the details— Right now it still looks like a food box!
11
I’m using a fine black pen for the finer image details
12
And whiteout to “paint” the edges of my Polaroid
13
Last of all, a little love note!
