In what is a beautiful follow up to ‘Snail Mail‘ released through Hardie Grant last year, Michelle Mackintosh has delivered another delicious book jam-packed full of beautiful photography and practical advice on sending mailable gifts. Care Packages follows a familiar format to Snail Mail with suggested types of creative packages and occasions for sending, techniques, templates, DIY’s as well as example packages from guest contributors such as Beci Orpin, Kate Ulman of Foxs Lane and Hiki Komura of UGUiSU Shoppe just to name a few.
There’s also the inclusion of creative mini packages sent in from all over the world as part of Michelle’s #POBox26 callout. I urge you to check out the images.
I really couldn’t imagine that there would be so much to say about crafting beautiful parcels for loved ones near or far, but Michelle has managed to create a concise compendium of lust-worthy mailable ideas sure to woo anyone.
If you’re into the idea of beautiful mail, crafting for friends and creating mailable memories, then this book is going to take pride of place on your bookshelf.
