For me, I love to see a person's culture reflected in the letter in some way. You'll see above a very teeny tiny paper crane. That was one of two included in this letter. The correspondent is Japanese.
She included a little note on a gorgeous piece of bunny notepaper. The bunny is about the size of the palm of my hand. I would love to have a little notepad like this. You can very clearly see in the photo the quality of the paper too.
And, there was a letter included as well, of course! All of that in just one envelope.
So, this is an extra special letter and it's an example of how to pull this off without using calligraphy or fancy inks.
There's SO MUCH you can do with a letter, and so much you can do that is inexpensive or free. I hope this letter inspires some of you letter writing enthusiasts looking for some ideas.
