- I have the worst handwriting! When we were addressing our wedding envelopes, I considered using the faux calligraphy technique but just didn’t have the time- if you can plan for it, here is a walk-through from Two Delighted. Their DIY also shows you a pretty way to package your envelope with twine and cutouts so it’s definitely worth a look!

- To stamp your envelopes with your monogram rather than use a label- here is a tutorial via Design Sponge.
