As I’ve mentioned before, Etsy is a wonderful place to discover handmade and unique items. I like knowing I’m purchasing something that can’t be found in every department store or is run of the mill.
What I also love about Etsy is the chance to run across something that isn’t necessary meant for one thing, but can be easily converted to another. These little accordion books were just that for me.
I was delighted by these mini-books which I used as unique stationery. I observered them as a sweet and unexpected for surprise for the recipient that could be unwrapped and was visually stimulating. The sellers shop has several different colors and patterns to pick from and it should be noted, they fold out into a very nice size.
The handmade quality was perfect and will certainly withstand time and handling. Sending these unique little letters in the mail was just a matter of buying a small padded envelope, slipping in the letter and sending it off on the snails back. I even kept one for myself to write some prose in~
