When I started the TPK blog in 2012, I tried to focus on long and complicated project tutorials. I always skipped the simple stuff because I thought it would bore people! The older I get, though, the more I realize that sometimes simple projects are all we need to wind down after a long day because they don’t require a lot of energy. It’s a bonus if a project can be used in a “real world” context — like sending snail mail! With that in mind, today I’m going to show you how to address an envelope.
Free Printable Exemplars to Help You Address an Envelope
In the YouTube video above, I mention two printable exemplars. The first is the faux calligraphy exemplar, which you can find in this blog post. I highly recommend that you read the entire blog post if you’re not familiar with the faux calligraphy technique! If you already know how to create faux calligraphy, then you can skip straight to the exemplar download.
The second exemplar the Morgan Style Lettering Exemplar. Morgan Style lettering is very simple and modern, and I usually create it with a dip pen. In the YouTube video, however, I used a regular black Gellyroll pen!
I’m big on using postage stamps to give personality to my envelopes! If you’re curious about how to arrange postage stamps (and where to find them), you can check out the How to Create a Stunning Postage Stamp Collage post.
Alright! That’s today’s YouTube tutorial. Short, sweet, and practical! If you have any requests for video topics, please let me know in the comments or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I’m always looking for new ideas! Thanks very much for taking the time to read/watch, and have a fantastic weekend!
