DIY Envelopes | Fellow Fellow This little DIY is by no means new or particularly innovative, but fun nonetheless! During Chinese New Year it is customary for parents to give their kids a monetary gift in bright red and gold envelopes. So I thought I’d try making my own envelopes, inspired by the red and gold ones I’ve been seeing around for weeks, but in my own style. They could be used for just about anything – letters, gifts, confetti.. and can be customised so easily! All you need is paper (whatever colours you like), glue, scissors, and a paint pen (also in whatever colour you like!). Step 1: Cut the paper using the template (or create your own size/shape and draw it onto the paper). Step 2: I found it easier to fold and glue the envelope before drawing on it so the pattern was seamless, but you can do it either way. Step 3: Get drawing!

Odds, Ends & Thingamajigs Here There Be Monsters One of the most common things I hear from people who object to learning, or having others learn, story structure is that the writing becomes stiff and mechanical. They are right. I will not argue with them about that. This argument, however, is made primarily by those who have a hard time understanding and applying story structure and it is convenient to say that it makes their work mechanical. Yet, this is true of the process of learning anything. Why would this be any different from learning to structure a story? I remember trying to learn the guitar years ago. This is where you want to get with writing and constructing stories. And that is why I can't play a musical instrument. I'm reminded of an early art teacher for the late great animation director Chuck Jones, who was fond of telling his students that they all had 100,000 bad drawings inside them and the sooner they got them out the better. But if you sail beyond that edge there is a new world.
