The backs: 

It's a real-life thrill to hear from venerable mail artist CrackerJack Kid.

He altered my envelope + 3scrap instructions in unique ways that look and feel geological, like bark. Actually he used corrugated cardboard, handmade paper, paint (I think), ink (I think), and something else. Plus the trashpo NUT. That's sandpo on back of the instructions. Did he use exactly 3 scraps on the front of the instructions? I believe he did!

He went all out echoing the dot theme of the original old schoolpaper. Not only do those dots now appear to have shadows or mirrors of themselves, but the entire thing is riddled with tiny holes. Great to touch, exquisite to see held up to the light. I love this beautiful thing. Thank you, CrackerJack.
