Envelopes
A spritz of perfume may be the classic way to make a letter seem special, but why not imbue your notes with an even more personal touch? For illustrator Rob Dunlavey, that meant painting a watercolor sailboat on the inside of an envelope to send to his fiancée. ("We were sailing into a new stage of life together, and I wanted to capture that," he says.) Fueled by her delight at the unconventional love letter, he spent an hour most mornings over the next year working on a different envelope picture. (To let your own personalized note unfold, simply grab an envelope...and unfold.)
