D.i.y printable little mail

Lately I've been sending out a lot of mail, specifically Etsy mail. Because of that I've made various trips to the post office. As I waited in line I thought to myself "Whats the smallest letter that can be mailed?". I immediately googled it, and sadly its about the size of a postcard. Obviously that wasn't silly enough for me, so I decided to use these air mail envelopes by Ruffled & these beautiful european printable stamps by Uppercase. I wish the post office still sold stamps this pretty, but then again I would probably never want to use them.


#1. Glue
#2. Print out these air mail envelopeby Ruffled & scale it to 50%
#3. Print out these stamps by Uppercase & scale them to 25%
#4. Scissors
#5. Pen
#6. 10 minutes of your time
#7. & This of course!

Step one: After printing out and cutting the envelope and stamps, choose one of the stamps and glue it onto the corner. Then address your letter!

Step two: With the leftover scraps from the envelope, cut out a small rectangle to write your note.

Step three: Place your letter inside and close it up. Do so by gluing the sides, be careful not to glue your letter onto the envelope.

Now isn't that the smallest letter you've ever seen? I absolutely love it,  if I was still in High School I would definitely pass my notes around like this. I'm sending my letter off to my favorite boy, French fry. I call him that because I love me some french fries, but he's still much better than those tasty treats. I'm thinking that my next letter will go to my best friend in San francisco. I have two friends in San Francisco, I'm thinking of mailing a letter with one of these inside so that she can place it in my best friends mailbox. I'm sure it will completely throw him off. ** Remember these letter's have to be hand delivered because well... it ain't gonna go anywhere if you place it in the mail box.

Valentine's day flyer freebie!

Last year I stumbled upon Amanda's free compliment's flyer & absolutely loved the idea. I printed them out and shared them on the streets. I must say my favorite part was sitting down and watching people's reactions to it. Some would look at the sign and walk away, while others returned to rip a note off. I thought It would be sweet to take these flyers to the streets again. However this time I made my own version specifically for Valentines day! I'll be printing these out and posting them around all day tomorrow. If you click below on the bar you can download the free template shown & for those of you that don't fancy what I wrote I also made blank ones that you could fill out yourself.  Just cut up the dashed lines and staple, tape, or hang up!

D.i.y Valentines day balloon card

Valentine's day is coming way to fast & even though I've prepared for it. I feel completely unprepared and lazy to do anything about it. I prefer hand making my cards than purchasing them. I feel the process is way funner than hunting for a card that last minute thats both personal and clever. The majority of the times I end up just grabbing any ol thing and just convince myself its the best thing ever. Well not this time.  

#1. One of the downloadable templates below

#2. Heart balloon
#3. Double sided tape

Step one: After cutting the card and folding it in half, place the heart balloon on top, and secure with double sided tape. You can either leave the balloon as is or blow it up and write a message for your loved one!

These heart balloons were a blast to play with. They look like kitties when I started blowing them up. I was so tempted to draw little faces on them but then I'd ruin the purpose of these templates. Any who head on over to Borondyspurpleplanet to enter her lovely valentines day giveaway!
