Having the time or money to put together a happy mail package in December for a faraway friend is rare. But, it doesn't mean you have to settle for "Merry Christmas!" text - you can pull together a unique hello for the price of a stamp.
You'll need: Envelope, stamp, catalog, tiny treasures, cute tape, and a pen.
Use the unused white space of a catalog and handwrite a letter.
I used a sheet from an Anthropologie catalog.
Fill the envelope with light, tiny treasures. I used some hand cut leaves from a Hambly Screenprints paper and some tiny star confetti.
Add some cute Washi tape and an inspiring quote.
Now all you have to do is walk to the mailbox!
