Mini Snail Mail (DIY with template)
Imagine sending the cutest little postcards. Nice, huh? And then imagine sending the cutest little postcards – bearing your own pictures – supernice!
Lea Redmond, who runs the worlds smallest post office, made it possible. She made a tiny postcard template, which you can download here, and which guides you through the steps needed to create your own mini snail mail.
The WSPS began in 2008 as a quirky little social art project. Postmaster Lea Redmond sets up her tiny roaming office in cafes and shops in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond and offers a teeny tiny letter transcription service to passers-by. At these appearances the letters are transcribed by hand on a miniature, wooden roll-top desk in the tiniest of script, sealed with a miniscule wax seal with the sender’s initial pressed into it, and packaged up with a magnifying glass.
O, I do hope we run into the Worlds Tiniest Post Office sometime – I love – love, love – snail mail. And you? Snail Mail lover too? Or more kind of a fast texting fan?Posted under All things Appracadabra, Our inspiration by Diana
