Over Sized Playing Card Post Card

The Wayward Girls are very excited for Jasmine's upcoming nuptials. Now we can plan a wedding with the help (or hindrance, depending on how you look at it) of Pinterest. To congratulate Jasmine, I made her a fun post card.

I bought these Heidi Swapp playing cards a long time ago--maybe 5 years ago? I fell in love with them but could never scrap with them because I loved them too much. Makes tons of sense, huh? Anyways, it was time to finally use them for a card for the new queen of diamonds.

This craft was very easy. All I did was write my message on an index card and tape it on the back. Addressed it, added a stamp and it was good to go! Note: this message was a recreation, since I didn't take a picture of the back of the card before sending it.

Jasmine was surprised and happy with her card. What more can you ask for?

Cereal-ously Fun Post Cards!

One day I was at my aunt's house, looking at all the fun things you can send through the mail on Giver's Log with her teenage daughters. My aunt then said that one of the coolest things she ever got in the mail was a post card made from a cereal box. I LOVED this idea and wanted to send some fun post cards to my nephew and niece (Jordan's kids). Another thing I loved about it? The cost: it's free!

What you do:

Take a cereal box, and cut it up in to a rectangle. Make sure to cut it between the minimum and maximum sizes set by the Post Office:
  • Minimum: 5" long by 3 &1/2" high 
  • Maximum: 11" long by 6 & 1/8" high

On the back, write out your message. Then address it and stamp it.

And send!

Here's proof my niece (4 years old) and nephew (6 years old) liked 'em

 These would be equally fun for kids to make!

Other boxes to cut up and send: Mac and Cheese, Brownie or Cake mix, Tampon box (if you're feeling brave/funny/stupid with your menstruating friend), Toothpaste box (post card from the tooth fairy?). Tissue boxes for sick or sad friends, or a shoe box for shoe lover. Tons of possibilities and all of 'em are free!
