Winging Away

Here is some 13-ounces or less mail that I sent to my MIL. She sent me a bunch of notions last fall so I thought this would be a fun way to thank her.

This box made its way to a dear friend this week. I covered it with burlap and then stenciled the birds and letters on.

For shipping, you reverse the flaps so that plain cardboard is on top allowing the address labels to be affixed.

I also made a stenciled fish box - where I painted over reverse stencils and allowed the girls to decorate the areas left blank in the shapes of fish. It was awesome and the mailman was great about being careful about the label placement but I forgot to take a photo!!


  1. What lovely gifts. A thrill to receive I'm sure. I just came upon some burlap in my sewing box the other day ... I think my next mail out will be that. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Love the thread one. I am a thread freak even though I do not sew.

  3. It IS beautiful. I LOOOOVE it! I've got a special place picked out for it in the front entry. LOVE how it laces up.

  4. LOL! I just realized something.... I bet if you went back and looked at all of my comments that I leave, they would all be the same! Wow! You are so TALENTED! That is so cute! I love it! That's amazing! :)
    But everytime I leave a comment like that it's 'cuz its true! :)
    I love your new blog look too. The header is wonderful! exclamation! exclamation! :)

    Hope you had a lovely Mother's Day.And thank you for my sweet thank you! :)


  5. What a beautiful Mother's Day gift. In Canada, shipping is so expensive. I am not sure if the post would allow a little wooden box. That wooden box sewing diarama is just precious. Your mind and creativity amazes me.

    I hope the dogs are behaving:)
