Secret Snailmail book

I had this book lying around. It was just the kind of book I didn't know what to do with it. It was a book about plants, the graphic design in it was great, but I really hated the colors. All dark green and dark orange. The size of the book was just perfect snailmail size. And suddenly it hit me! Wouldn't it be great to have a snailmail set for when you are a few days away! Easy to take with you and no one will ever know what's inside a book. A secret snailmail set! So I covered the book in Kraftpaper and glued an envelope inside and covered a few pages with paper. I've cut out a square with my blunt scalpel (i didn't have my new cutting knife by then) and glued the pages together. I've put as many snailmail stuff inside as I could fit in and made an elastic band from a pair of old trousers from my son to hold it all together tightly.
And this is what I managed to squeeze in! A pen, airmail stickers, stamp stickers, divine twine, a memory card of a rose, some cocktail flags, a card, a pink envelope with buttons, a small Kraft card, a few pictures of vintage ladies, a few tags, paperclips, a small stamp, colourful ink, a magnetic bookpage holder, a card with eyes on it, blue tape and some more stuff.
