SPSH 2014: Outgoing Mail

Secret Penpal Scavenger Hunt was a unique package swap project. While I got my package from a Singaporean pal. I sent out my package to a girl who happens to live in the same country with me, Indonesia.

The moment I signed up for SPSH, I had had a vision to bring out the beauty of Indonesia through its Batik, so I picked batik wrapping papers and add a touch of elegance with the gold ribbon. 

I assembled things that represent me and put them inside a box covered with batik. They represent my hobbies, to doodle, to craft and to fangirl, also the dog doll because my Chinese zodiac is a dog.

Here is something traditional, there is a flower patterned tin can. And also five sugar sticks with traditional illustration. love!

Something to read! And also because she likes purple.

A mail art kit. Inside, I put 5 postcards, lots of used stamps, lots of handmade stickers (that I doodle with purple color), ribbon and also writing papers. Bonus is a brochure about new issued Indonesian stamps.

My favorite kit to assemble, Happy Day Kit! I divided them into two parts. This one is a kit for boring days. There are sticker paper, origami paper, crepe paper, coloring little statue and two tattoos.

And the second part is for bad days. Stuffed inside are some candies, snacks, chocolates and tea. Because really, sweet things always make my day much better.

The last is an extra gift for her. There are three pairs of socks and two bears keychain (now you can touch a bear! hehe) I don't know if these will suit her preference or not, but hopefully they do.

Woop, they are all wrapped and fit perfectly into a shoe box, ready to be sent.

I had lots of fun gathering and wrapping things for the Secret Penpal Scavenger Hunt though honestly I am a bit late! Ha! I am satisfied with what I have sent and also what I have received. I think this project is really awesome, It unleashes the creativity inside me and the best parts are to know my package has safely arrived and I have also gotten a wonderful package!

I am looking forward to next year's SPSH, hopefully I can still be able to take part on it. Thanks fab!
