Transparent envelope in action

Last week I posted a tutorial on how to make your own transparent envelopes. I of course wanted to mail the ones I made, so I wanted to show you how the final package ended up looking like.

I sent this to a friend who had been travelling recently. I wanted her to have a fun surprise waiting for her in the mail box once she got home. I also know that sometimes coming home from a long trip you're exhausted, so I figured what better to send her than some coffee. Fair enough, it's the instant variety, but sometimes you're just too tired to make the non-instant kind.

I wanted to really play up the transparency of the envelope, that being the main point why I made it in the first place. So, I packed it with other transparent things. There's the coffee in a smaller transparent envelope and a small note in a even smaller see-through pouch. I did add another note as well, but that was the only thing inside that you couldn't see through.

I packed them all in the large envelope, added some stickers (naturally! mail is better with random stickers) and sent it on it's way.

I have to say that this was a whole lot of fun to put together. I think I'll continue working with the see through envelopes. I'm sure there's a ton of things I can do with these.

What would you send in a transparent envelope?
