To answer the massive amount of mail I received earlier this week, I needed an army.
Luckily, my Italian travels also included a quick stop at a much-celebrated Danish stationery store where I resisted buying a tapir eraser, a plush salmon, and a giant notebook emblazoned with the solar system. It was impossible to avoid the charms of this strawberry-themed paper pack, though–so my outgoing mail just became a lot more summery!
(Considering how much fragola-flavored gelato I consumed in Italy, I’d say it’s fate.)
If you think there could only possibly be one or two ways to depict stylized strawberries–behold, ye skeptic! This designer somehow created nearly eight different floral, berry-filled patterns: I think the botanical aesthetic with the leaves and blooms is my favorite.
I tried writing addresses directly on the envelopes, but soon gave up and opted for little yellow labels instead.
In addition to obligatory souvenirs and memories from Italy, I’ll probably fill these sweet envelopes with the most cheerful stickers and scraps from my letter table. The ultimate addition would be a recipe for strawberry shortcake, though I’d need to test a few out first in order to settle on the golden mean of strawberries/cake. What a terrible fate, truly!
