Last week I received an envelope from one of my Stamps in the Mail Club members. When I opened it I found her check (thanks Margo) but the extra little note she included put a HUGE smile on my face!
Here is Margo’s notecard, and she tells me that her idea came from Genevieve Caissiee. The finished size is about the same as a business card (around 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″):
If I was so excited to find this little enclosure in the envelope, just think how much you could brighten the day of the person who opens your electric company bill, the preschool permission slip or your Demonstrator Starter Kit paperwork!
And if you’d like to learn more about my Stamps in the Mail Club, it’s not too late to sign up for the February kit (even though it’s March now).
I had to create my own notecard, based on the one Margo sent to me. I used the 2-Step Bird Punch (see it online) as well as a bird idea that I borrowed from Cecile Ortiz. She made the bird 2-toned, by punching it twice then cutting away the bottom part of the darker punch piece. Isn’t that cool?!
So what do you think? Do you ever include a little note with your bills or registrations in the mail?
