Getting a piece of mail in your mailbox that is colorful and fun can brighten your day. #TheMailboxProject is created to encourage everyone to decorate their envelopes and send happy mail to loved ones and friends. We'd love to see what you come up with. Take a photo (making sure that names and addresses are blurred out or omitted) and share it on Instagram or Facebook using #themailboxproject
Grab your pencils, pens, markers and paint and decorate the outside of the envelopes.
A friend took a Christmas card I sent her and shipped it back to me in a new form! A treasured gift for sure.
Fill the envelope with words of encouragement, a heartfelt note, a book mark or simply a "Hello, I'm thinking of you."
Or maybe make Inspirational Name Cards like shown in the video below. In my example, the name is Roseann.
Ideas for What to Send
What you put inside your envelope can be as simple or as complicated as you want! Designer and friend Kathy Schmitz has created several FREE patterns that would be perfect treasures to make and share in #themailboxproject.
