Velika noč-voščilnice - Easter Postcards




    

S takimi voščilnicami sem letos prijateljem, sorodnikom in znancem voščila za Veliko noč. Oblika pirha je narejena z rastlinsko barvano česano ali filcano volno. Modra je pobarvana s silino, rdeča z barvilnim broščem in najtemnejša s košeniljko. Nekatere voščilnice so narejene tudi z ročno izdelanim papirjem, ki sem ga pred leti delala iz starega pisarniškega papirja in odpadnih škatel za jajca.
Tudi izdelovanje in pošiljanje voščilnic je del moje priprave na praznovanje Velike noči.

This year I wished a blessed Easter feast to my friends, family and acquaintances with these Easter cards. The shape of the egg is filled with natural dyed carded or felted wool. The blue is obtained with woad, the red with madder and the darkest wool with cochenille. Some cards include hand made paper I made a few years ago from waste office paper and egg boxes.
Making and sending handmade Easter cards is also a part of my preparation for the Easter feast.
