Sent with Love No. 44 My Halloween Mailing

Don't you just love Halloween? This year I wanted to send out a Halloween mailing that had a little something more than candy. I gathered all my favorite supplies- rubber stamps, wash tape, glitter, and wax seals.
At Michael's I found these black wooden coffins. They also had unpainted wood but black is spooky and fun. 
 I added wax seals in copper wax to the front of them.
I wrote a note and decorated the bubble mailer packages with vintage postage. I think they have all been delivered safely :)

Fantastic Japan Stamps

 I discovered Fantastic Japan on Instagram and was instantly obsessed! I placed an order and it came in about a week. How great are these photo stamps??
 That top cat is my favorite. Such a funny face!
I clearly need photo stamps of Otto and Milchy.
Did you know that today, October 29 is national cat day?? How are you celebrating? My apartment building picked today, of all days, to do fire alarm testing. Otto and Milchy are hiding under the bed. We will celebrate tomorrow, poor babies.

Notebooks Giveaway Flow Magazine- NOW CLOSED

Please get in touch so we can send you your prize.
If you're not familiar,  FLOW is a Dutch magazine that revolves around a love of paper. It's a beautiful publication and not one that I can get my hands on often enough. They just teamed up with Sissy-Boy stationery products to create a series of notebooks. I was lucky enough to receive two of these notebooks for a giveaway.
They are a nice size, slightly smaller than school composition notebooks. They have sturdy covers and nice thick pages, in a variety of blank and lined. Each notebook has some extras in the back, bunting, or envelopes, or tags. Any stationery lover would be delighted to receive one of these as a gift!
1) Comment on this blog post sharing what you love about notebooks or how you'd use these.
For extra entries- repost (instagram, blog, twitter, tumblr, facebook) or pin on social media and be sure to let me know in the comments. @paperpastries on instagram
Winner will be chosen at random on Friday, October 16. Good luck!
