Let's Write A Letter

How is your weather with the fist days of Fall only 2 days away?
Here in Michigan we are still seeing the mid 80's
and I am NOT complaining as I will take it as long as we can get it!!

It does feel however , that Fall is certainly in the air.
That being the case, I decided to make a cute Fall
letter writing set for my Mom.

It just so happens that this week our assignment at

This cut file is FULL of letter writing printables,
pretty much anything you can think of.

I simply pulled out some 'fall-ish' papers,
printed and constructed my box in minutes,
printed the writing sheets, did a few embellishments on the cover
and my box was complete!

Here is what the inside looks like,
a place for the printed writing sheets (part of the cut file)
and also a place to hold a pen.

Here is what it looks like before I added the writing papers.

A side view to show the box bottom.

The complete box, closed and ready to give as a gift.

 Regina had mentioned that in this day and age, most letters
are computer generated and encouraged all of us
to actually 'write' a letter.
Wow, she is absolutely correct in that statement,
in fact here in the schools, 
the children aren't even taught how to write in cursive,
can you believe that?
I find it totally bizarre!  
I do have an elderly Aunt that is 92 I write to
and her birthday was the 12th...so perfect timing!!

Now head on over to The Cutting Cafe blog tomorrow Sept. 21st
and see ALL the projects the design team has to show you,
you won't be disappointed!!

What a pretty, pretty stationery set! Beautiful fall theme, and I love how the box has a space for the pen. When I was working on my stamp room clearing out/reorganizing project yesterday (what a mess!) I came upon a stationery gift set I made years ago. It's way outdated now, but I was thinking it would be fun to make another one for a certain friend who does a lot of letter writing. I'm pretty old school when it comes to sending cards and letters. To sit down with something pretty in your hand and read a letter written in a person's own hand is so much more personal and enjoyable than an email. I'm glad to hear you write to your elderly aunt. She must really look forward to those letters and cards. What a beautiful and inspiring post, Diane!
