Happy Mail Inspiration

February Happy Mail Idea + Giveaway

Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to send some happy snail mail! For February’s happy mail, it’s all about the packaging! We’re suckers for pretty packaging and this month’s theme will help you add some flair. From stamps to string and, of course, coordinated note cards- we hope this inspires you to send a letter or two!

Send some love with our February Happy Mail idea! We're including all the things that make snail mail special! Enter to win this giveaway on Lily & Val Living!

It’s no surprise that we love the classic “brown paper packages tied up with string” look, so red and white baker’s twine was a must. To create the look on the outside of the package and hint at what’s inside,  I used a bright red Chalk Ink marker to add some bold color!  A white Chalk Ink marker was also used for the address. Since these markers are so opaque, it looks clean and nice!

We’ve also included some super cute mini note cards for any time you just want to slip an encouraging message in a friend’s bag or coat pocket.  It can say something as simple as “Have a great day!”  It’s the little things that count.

    These cards and envelopes are beautiful! Thanks for offering the giveaway. 🙂 I all for keeping letter-writing and note-giving alive, and I’d love to share some of these with my new pen pal (old school! I’m bringing it back!) through the Lovely Letters Exchange project. 🙂
