Floral Stationery: Poppy

Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 2006

Invitation, Reply Card, and Sketchbook Favor
We let the cheerful character of poppies inform this bold letterpress collection, available from Bella Figura. The graphic blooms, calligraphy (by Deborah Delaney), and type all have a light-spirited, modern feeling. For favors, mini sketchbooks are paired with petite colored-pencil sets from Paper Presentation (Bella Figura printed the glue-on labels).

To make the books, cut card stock into 3-by-6-inch strips (cut slightly smaller pages from regular copier paper), fold in half, and tie embroidery floss around the spine for a loose binding; stamp "sketches" on the front (or print out from your computer before assembling).

Even the postage stamps match the theme; you can use discontinued designs like these, available from online vendors, as long as the postage on the envelope adds up to at least the current rate.
