Pie envelopes… you knew they were coming. Thank goodness!
First we have another take on the bakery box concept. Check out this adorable blueberry pie envelope from Kelly Synnott in Washington, DC. This has been one of my favorites since last summer when she sent it to me…
I love the red and white gingham background,
and the lovely hand lettering of the address.
Next up is a really brilliant one from Amy Nicole Powell in New York City. This one is just so original, yet so simple. Behold:
First of all, the front must have taken some planning – she’s made a paper basketweave pastry topping, with paper whipped cream to hold the address. Then – oh check out the back! (The stamp must have fallen off…)
It’s an actual paper plate that she’s painted gray to look like a pie plate. So this thing arrives in your mailbox looking like an actual pie! Like, it’s three-dimensional! I think this is absolutely genius, Amy. It would be so fun and inexpensive to recreate for a birthday party (or even some guerrilla pie-shop marketing – hmmm…).
Finally, we have super duper overachiever extraordinaire, Stevie Hopwood,from London. You may remember she also overdid things with these fabulous Olympic Bunny, Grizzly and Kitty envelopes. I’m not complaining…
Here’s how it arrived in the mailbox:
When you open it, the full pie is revealed! And some tiny treasures pop out too…
And of course the back, designed like a record. All watercolored by hand. Amazing.
I’m really so, so flattered by all the creativity and love you put into these projects. THANK YOU!
Hope you have a great weekend. Rest up because next week? Is CAT WEEK. I’m not 100% sure what that means either, but we’ll figure it out and it will be fun Until then, don’t forget to check out and maybe enter my give-away over on Catsparella! Tuesday is the last day to do so
