When it comes to wrapping gifts or sending out cards or letters, I always try to use what I have on hand. I enjoy the challenge more than running to the store and plunking down several dollars for a card that may not exactly convey the message I wish to express. When it came time back in May to send thank you notes for Veli's V-themed birthday celebration, I rummaged through my assorted pieces of paper and and looked to my jug of glitter for inspiration in sending sentiments in Veli's Croatian mother tongue.
I found a font I liked, enlarged it and then made a stencil for my letters. I cut out the letters "h" and "l" on a slightly naughty piece of newsprint I saved from a MoMA exhibit.
For the letters "a," I repurposed gift wrap saved from Veli's birthday celebration.
Always Frugal Always Fabulous,
The Elegant Thrifter
