Salutations traveller. Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall today. This morning I received a rather unconventional message. The message itself was not unconventional, rather the manner in which it arrived was. I was sitting down to enjoy a fresh cup of coffee with a raspberry danish and a slice of fried dragon’s hide when through the open window came more than just the warm spring breeze. I was about to cut into the dragon’s hide when a paper airplane landed right on my plate! At first I thought it was the Lady Commander of Copics, up to her usual japes. I plucked the paper airplane from my plate and noticed there was script on it. Carefully unfolding the aircraft I read the message inside. It was from Madame Lornel! Seems she was in need of more thank you minis to fill her box I made her last autumn. At last! A proper crafting quest. I rushed to the crafting chambers after gulping down my breakfast.
For this mini I cut the base out using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I then used my precious cloud patterned My Little Shoebox paper for the background, again cutting the shape with Art Philosophy. I used the Lawn Fawn “Flying By” set for the sentiment and the paper airplane. I then used my new Lawn Fawn “Good Fortune” set to make the “banner” from the airplane and stamp the thanks onto the banner. This earned me +66 dual tech exp points.
Because these are mini (2.75” x 2.75”) I kept the inside pretty plain to maximize writing space. I stamped the smaller paper airplane onto the envelope, because nothing pleases a Guild Master more than matching envelopes.
I do enjoy creating these little minis to fill Madame Lornel’s box. It is strange to think that these are going to strangers purchasing new wagons and carriages from Madame Lornel and I will never meet them, nor they I. A little bit of anonymous happy.
