Things To Say #1

Thinking of you

Thinking about you on this special day. Hard to believe it has been three years since it happened. You have stood up to the changes with such strength of character, never letting the circumstances define you. And always making time for other people to have the benefit of your understanding.


We are designing some mugs – about sixty designs at the time of writing – to add to our product ranges.

Watch this space, or better still, go to Flying Twigs and sign up to our amazing newsletter to be the first to hear. You will find the newsletter sign-up at the foot of the home page.

This Is An Envelope

There is a wonderful description of an envelope from Encore Envelopes

“An envelope is a common packaging item, usually made of thin flat material. It is designed to contain a flat object, such as a letter or card. Traditional envelopes are made from sheets of paper cut to one of three shapes: a rhombus, a short-arm cross, or a kite. These shapes allow for the creation of the envelope structure by folding the sheet sides around a central rectangular area. In this manner, a rectangle-faced enclosure is formed with an arrangement of four flaps on the reverse side.”
