cozy winter vibes hand lettered card by Lily & Val

Friends, I hope your 2018 is off to an amazing start! I think this is the perfect time of year to try something creative. Yes, because of the new year, but mostly because it’s FREEZING outside and I’d rather be cozied up inside with a new project!

This happy mail idea centers around giving your loved one an excuse to embrace those cozy winter vibes and do something just for fun!

Lily & Val for Plaid Crafts stencils are available at Michaels!

A package of Lily & Val stencils found at Michaels stores might be the perfect item to spark some creativity! They are so versatile and can be used to make chalkboards, wooden signs, or an array of projects! Here’s a great post from Plaid Crafts with instructions on how to use them!  They also make a great happy mail surprise since they are flat and super easy to ship!

Pair the stencils with our Cozy Winter Vibes card to let the recipient know you were thinking of them (especially if they live in freezing temperatures!)
