It’s officially summer, as of yesterday!!!
I love summer so much. When it gets too hot outside, or on rainy summer day, I love being able to stay inside and pull out my favorite craft supplies. I thought it would be fun to put together a happy mail package to send to a friend to celebrate the beginning of summer.
To start, I created a flat card that I will use to write my note. I cut a piece of card stock paper to fit inside my glassine bag that I am using as an envelope. Using the clear stamp “hello” and “lovely” I combined the two together and stamped the saying to the top of my paper. The stamp set from Maggie Holme’s bloom collection also comes with a variety of cute bows !!!
As soon as I had my card finished I gathered some metallic confetti and two pink rolls of crate paper. I wanted to make some confetti to put inside my bag as a fun little extra surprise.
To make my handmade confetti I combined the metallic confetti and cut down tiny pieces of the pink crate paper and added them together. I loving mixing in fun elements like confetti, especially with glassine bags because you can see it from the outside.
Inside my glassine bag I included my typed note along with a cute pair of pink sunglasses. I don’t know about you, but I am always in need of a extra pair of sunglasses in the summer. The glasses fit perfectly inside my glassine bag.
To close off the bag, I added in my handmade confetti and sewed the bag shut using white thread. Once the bag was sealed I made a cute tag using paper from the BLOOM collection.
To finish off my summer happy mail package I added in a bag of popcorn and a container of sprinkles!! Have you ever made pop-corn with sprinkles added in ?? It’s a must try !!! I also added in a set of cute pattern napkins.
What is summer without a fun movie night, and pop-corn !!!!!
Sending happy mail doesn’t have to be elaborate. I love just sending something simple to let my friends know I am thinking of them, and to wish them a happy day. I always love opening the mail box to a package or letter so I can only image my friends do too!!!!
Hoping you all are having a great start to your summer!!!! What would you send to your friends to help them celebrate summer ????
