Below is a letter I sent to a fellow grand budapest hotel fan :-)
All you have to do is paint an envelope salmon pink with watercolours, allow it to dry, then use red paint to do a simplified version of the mendl's box design.
I didn't bother drawing the design first, mostly because I'm lazy, but also because I like the uneven look, but if you prefer a more perfect envelope you could trace all the swirls etc from the actual box design. Don't forget to substitute the words for your friends address though!
Next I want to try making the courtesan au chocolat sweets that feature throughout the film - you can find a video and recipe here.
You can even make a box to put your cooking creations in using this DIY!
Anyway, hope you enjoyed the mendl's inspired mail and have a lovely week!
p.s. I may be absent from this blog for a little while because my camera has broken :-( I have yet to decide what type of camera to get - is it worth the extra money to get a slr or should I just get a still shot camera? I am torn because I would like to have better quality images but I don't want to spend too much- definitely no more than $500 so it would be on the cheap end of slr's- is their quality still good? I am by no means a photography person so any advice would be much appreciated!
