I’ve never been very good at sending out cards for various occassions. In fact, I’m lucky if I get birthday cards out in time or at all. However, it’s something I’m working on and hope to get better at. I think having kids makes this a little easier because it’s so fun to mail out cute stuff on their behalf!
Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I’ve been working on some simple homemade valentines that I’m planning to send out to the grandparents and a few others. I wanted them to be functional enough to keep around for a while, so I opted to make giant photo bookmarks!
If Baylen was a little older, he could have participated more, but for this year he’s in charge of adding the stickers, which he can’t get enough of right now.
DIY: Valentine’s Day Photo Bookmarks
- 8 x 11 construction paper
-rubber cement or glue
-markers (not pictured)
-paint chips (free at home improvement stores)
-ribbon, yarn, or string
What To Do:
Now if only I can make the final step and get these babies in envelopes and to the mail box, I’ll call it a success!
Question: Does anyone else struggle to stay on top of mailing out cards? For those of you who are great at it, what’s your strategy for success?
Happy Thursday, Everyone!
