Today we are looking at the Starry Sky Envelopes available at Spoon & Tamago website. Be ready for a little sticker shock though as each envelope is listed at $13.00 each.
The article at their site from October 2016 shares – “These envelopes were originally designed by a young Japanese art student named Moe Tsukada. She submitted her prototype to a design contest last year, where she won first prize. …”
“Want to send your city-dwelling friends a miniature planetarium? The Starry Sky Envelopes”
It is described as: “Tiny holes are pierced into the envelope, creating an astrologically accurate depiction of the heavenly bodies. A double-layered mechanism allows for light to filter in, which illuminates the inside of the envelope. Text written in both Japanese and English instructs the recipient to peer inside for a special surprise.”
They are 6 x 8.5 in (152 x 214 mm) in size and made in Japan.
The idea is so creative I could not resist; I’ve already gone ahead and ordered one and looking forward to its arrival!
You may have found yourself humming the Don McLean song “Vincent” (Starry, Starry Night) with reading today’s daily blog post topic. I’ve included this from YouTube of him performing from 1972.
Join me tomorrow for my Sunday blog post. Wishing you a joyous Saturday.
P.S. If you find yourself in a Don McLean mood, he was included in my blog post on “Buddy Holly Handwritten Letter”. Enjoy!
