More paper bags received

Another post where I group a bunch of paper bag envelopes that I received in the previous weeks.
The first one comes from Corinne Parchantour, in France.

Next one is from Vesna Majer, from Croatia.

Then a baker bag from Philippe Charron, from France.

Some “art in a bag” from Katerina Nikoltsou from Greece.

And finally, four from Anna Karine Fries from Germany. Among them, again there is one made from a vacuum cleaner bag!

Sent to Susan Stewart

I recently got three free paper bags in a magazine that I read from time to time (Flow magazine). I decided to use them as basis for envelopes, of course. Here is the first one that I sent to Susan. I customized the bag using my metallic Sharpies (I’m impressed by the quality of the metallic Sharpies compared to a lot of metallic markers I have used so far…) in gold, silver and copper. The result is better in real life, as usual the scanner does not really like metallic shimmer. I also added some of my thin washi tape that I have since ages.

I also sent to Susan one of my recent ATC.

Lots of paper bags received

I have such a backlog in blogging all contributions to my paper bag mail art call, that I’m grouping some of them into the same post.
First two items from new contributors. The first one if from Manuel Xio Blanco, from Spain.

The second one is from Ruggero Maggi from Italy.

Then a sending from Connie Jean, from USA.

A nice dreamcatcher from Jocelyne Depierre from France.

And finally a bunch of seven (yes seven !) items from Uwe Klein from Germany. The last one is made from a vacuum cleaner bag! This is a first! (but you will see in a later post that this is not the only one).


I decided to answer to a mail art call I saw on Instagram. The theme was free. I don’t know why, but I felt like coming back to some techniques I used when I started doing mail art. So I made thsi flower envelope.

Frogs from Fabienne Lebaron

Some very cute frogs received from Fabienne. Also included was a very nice Origami frog that I could not scan. I have a big fan of Origami but I have never succeeded making an Origami frog. Well done Fabienne (and Merci beaucoup).

More paper bags sent

Trying to catch up with all the answers I have to send for my mail art call, I sent two envelopes made from the lateral sides of a Body Shop bag. One side had a text in French, so I sent it to Christiane. The other side had the same text in English, I sent it to Uwe.

Also I’m still playing with some Starbucks bags, for this envelope sent to Philippe Charron.

Received from Elena Signori

A very nice handmade postcard from Elena. You cannot see it on the scan but the card has some 3D effect.
