Hello Tombow friends! Adrienne from Studio 80 Design here to share some fun happy mail projects with you! Today, I’ll be using the three Tombow TwinTone Palettes to show you three envelope designs you can use to address your envelopes. Adding hand drawn elements to your envelopes is a great way to personalize your letters and help make the receiver feel special! Let’s get started!
Materials you’ll need:
- Tombow TwinTone Marker Sets in Pastel, Bright, and Rainbow
- White Envelopes
For the first envelope design, I used the TwinTone Marker Bright Set to make a typography inspired design! I angled the lines for the address and used a combination of Serif uppercase and Monoline calligraphy to write the address. I chose a new color for each line of the address. I used those same markers to draw flourish designs on the top and bottom. Lastly, I used a ruler to draw angled lines on the rest of the envelope.
Floral Illustration Envelope
For the next envelope design, I used the Pastel TwinTone Marker Set to create a floral illustration. First, I drew a banner at the top and wrote “Deliver To” inside. Next, I wrote the address in a mixture of cursive and uppercase Serif font. The great thing about the TwinTone Markers is they are dual tipped, so they have both a broad marker and a fine tip end. Lastly, I drew florals around the page to fill in all the blank areas.
Rainbow Pattern Envelope
For the last envelope design, I used the Rainbow TwinTone Marker Set to create a rainbow pattern. I used my ruler to draw guidelines every .5” down the page. Next, I started with red and drew a zig-zag line across the top of the envelope with the broad tip end. Then, I drew triangles with both the broad and fine tip ends. I worked my way down the envelope using all the colors in the market set. Once the pattern was completed, I used a black TwinTone Marker to write the address on top of the pattern.
Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you found these three envelope designs inspirational! Make sure to follow @studio80design for more projects like this!
