Manila Mail Art

I’m in a Manila Folder mail art round robin. These are the two folders I’m sending out. (Fronts and backs).  I put a tyvek envelope inside each folder so any wet media would not bleed through. Duck brand tape seals the edges.  These are the regular sized file folders, so plenty of surface to work with.  I’ve purposely filled up all the blank manila areas with paints and etc.  That way layering will have to occur, which is what I love about mail art! 🙂

I used my sewing machine to sew on a piece of collage on  folder #2 (back), which I created this week in our local art group…sewing on these folders is so easy – and fun!  I just need to remember when I do paper sewing, to change the needle before going back to my fabric sewing! 😉

  1. Hi Corrine! Love these folders!!

    I particularly like the two front pages because the design is strong and they are not so cluttered. Great work, Corinne!

      Thank you so much, Ulrike! They will no doubt be more cluttered when they get home from the RR, but I may just make some more for myself- and then make a book with them, of course.:))
