When was the last time you sent a handwritten birthday card, love note, or a “just thinking about you” letter in the mail? I hope this post inspires you to pick up your pen and start writing.
Why not take this process a step further by designing and creating your own greeting cards? Honestly, it’s personal and so much easier. Plus, it’s cheaper than purchasing one at the store. Each card can set you back $5. Why not just make your own? Here’s what you do, set aside an hour or two to design and create a bunch of greeting cards for all occasions. Then, next time you’re in need of one, pull it out, write a special something on the inside and viola – the receiver will feel extra special because of all of the DIY thoughtfulness that you put into it.

Step 2: Paint your alphabet letter labels black. Let dry.
