Doodled frames on envelopes

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to doodle on envelopes, this is the result. Sometimes mailing a plain envelope just won't do. Hint: laying a business card on top makes a nice template to sketch around if you have trouble with square corners. For some even better frame doodles, see here.

What a brilliantly pretty waste of time! This would make getting a letter so much more exciting than it already is!

I LOVE the one in the furthest background but I'm pretty sure mine would end up looking like my 1 year old did it :)

So fun! I mean, getting any "real" mail is awesome but doubly so when it comes in a cute frame!

Sweet! I doodle on envelopes constantly to make them more interesting for the receiver, but this is far more interesting.

Suh-weet! Love me the doodling bug - it's amazing what pops out of the page sometimes!

This is such a great idea! I'm trying to start writing letters again, and what a fantastic and cheerful way to really brighten up a white envelope!

I've been using little hand-drawn frames on my Etsy shipment boxes for a while. Saves on paper labels and makes them a little more personal (and fun to do).

Very nice and simple idea .. certainly very creative and effective.
It adds extra love more then just a envelope.
