Introduction: Birch Bark Letter

Writing a letter to your loved one? Friends? Well say no more to boring old cards, try the birch bark method to show your love and gratitude as well as show off your originality.

Step 1: Source Your Bark

PLEASE DO NOT STRIP FROM A LIVE TREE

This bark peels from drying birch, so sourcing might be slightly challenging if you don't have local forests/access.

Chose if you want moss, knots, or other highlights for your letter, or chose to have a clean writing surface.

Step 2: Cut to Shape

Perhaps you keep the size of the piece, or cut to the exact letter size. now, write your letter on the bark, using a ballpoint ink pen.

Step 3: Send

Your cool letter now can be sent to express gratitude, love and show off a bit along the way. Enjoy!

    Very Nice idea!
    I'm gonna draw on it as soon as I found a Birch bark laying on the ground of somewhere :D

    Simple and nice-looking instructable though
