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!
