I blame my semi-serious hoarding on my mom. In our house, we could never throw anything away if it could be re-used or re-purposed. This is why I can’t bear to throw away old calendars with pretty designs or pictures. At a recent Borders closing sale, I snagged this box of patterned, blank cards for a heckuva deal and decided to decorate them by making use of an old letterpress calendar I had lying around.
DIY cards for everyday hellos
All you need to get started are blank cards, an old calendar, scissors, glue, and a good latte. Because a good latte makes everything better.
Glue your shapes onto the front of your cards. You’re all set to remind someone of the joys of snail mail!
p.s. Alan’s grandma and I send each other notes through the mail — it’s always lots of fun to get something in the mailbox that’s not a bill 🙂
