What do post-it notes, a teabag, and an individual packet of hot cocoa mix have in common?
Well, they can be tucked inside a handmade greeting card!
Sending a get well card with a tea bag or small pack of Kleenex inside will let your friend or family member know you are thinking of them and wish they will feel better soon.
The added surprise of a package of hot cocoa would also make a young child be excited when they open up their birthday card! What little kid (or big kid) doesn’t love a hot cup of cocoa? Or, you could include a flat fruit snack, gum, or bookmark. (When I teach first and second grade, the students love to use their bookmarks!)
Everyone loves to receive something special in their mailbox. Mailing a gift package can be costly, but sending a card with a little something extra tucked inside will certainly bring a smile to the person receiving it. It can be a gift in itself!
Sending a thank you card is something we should always do. (If you don’t, you should!) Imagine finding a special card in your mailbox from someone thanking you for something you did for them. It is easy to make a pocket card like this Thank You card. Click here to see how I made this card.
Why wait for a birthday or special occasion to send a card to someone? Surprise them by sending them a ‘Thinking of You’ or a note card when they least expect it. It will make you feel better and they will certainly appreciate it. What a wonderful way to keep in touch and let someone know your gratitude for having them in your life. Even if you see someone frequently, they would love to find a card with a stamp and their name on an envelope when they sort through the junk mail in their home mailbox. You know they will open the card first!
When you send a friend a note card to let them know you are thinking of them, include a bookmark or a teabag or a small post-it notes stack. How many people can say they received those in the mail?
What would you tuck into a card?
Enjoy your Creative Day!
