I think we can all agree that snail mail during the holidays is the best. Next to birthday mail, holiday mail is happily filled with bright envelopes, beautiful cards, smiling photos and notes from actual people! The daily deliverings are smile inducing. Bills and junk mail seem less so or at least diluted during the season which makes the bills after the holidays seem so much more shocking. :)
To help this fun mail time along, I, with enormous help from my assistant, created three holiday-themed envelopes. You can dress your cards, notes and pictures in envelopes with the likes of Santa, a reindeer and a jolly snowman. All you need to do is print them off and assemble.
Since our holiday cards are already sent and my children are still itching to send things to everyone we know, I’m planning on sending out our thank you notes in these.
Print out the PDFs. I printed mine on cardstock. Cut out the envelope shapes with the scissors.
Using the straight edge and the bone folder, score the template on the fold marks.
Place double-sided tape on the side flaps, fold the bottom section into place and secure.
Now they are ready to fill! Notes, cards, pictures, anything you want. The envelopes will need an additional piece of tape to keep the flap closed. After that, simply address, stamp and send as normal.
Just because it will make them smile, I’m sending a card to both my littles. Oh the magic of the holidays.
