My Friend EMBROIDERED ENVELOPE
Average Retail Price: $4.80CAN ($5.70US) YOUR PACKAGE INCLUDES DETAILED FINISHING DIRECTIONS
Perhaps your friend is a fellow stitcher and will be thrilled just to receive a little hand-stitched envelope (but you could always make it extra special by slipping in a few skeins of floss or a needlework notion or two. Maybe you have friends who are avid gardeners, painters or scrap bookers (they'd probably enjoy finding some seed packets, tubes of watercolour paint, fancy stickers... your imagination's the only limit!)
Design Details... This little envelope is furnished with a PRETTY 10-CENT ‘POSTAGE STAMP’ that bears a newly-opened DAFFODIL. The OPENING LINES OF WORDSWORTH'S FAMOUS 'DAFFODIL' POEM runs along the perimeter of the envelope (but, instead of leading to the sight of a meadow full of 'Daffodils', it leads to the equally comforting and inspiring sight of YOUR FRIEND. Not wanting to be the one to disturb the Daffodil theme, the postmaster has used an ‘INK STAMP’ that reads "HAVE A DILLY OF A DAY". Over-dyed thread gives the impression that your envelope was addressed with a FOUNTAIN PEN. Whatever surprises your envelope holds, they're held securely inside with your own choice of BUTTON and some PRETTY RIBBONS (I chose blue and green).
