Snail Mail- glassine bags

Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing some faux glassine bags that I have made. I was inspired by the talented Splattered Inky on Instagram. 

I have used tracing paper to create the glassine bags, some vintage book and dictionary pages (which I picked up from a local thrift store) and some music sheets. 

I fussy cut some vintage owl images, which I adhered to the bags. Everything has been distressed with Vintage photo distress ink. Next, I adhered some antique postage stamps. Finally, I stamped a clear postal stamp using Black soot distress ink. 

Thanks so much for visiting the Fairy Den!
