|CREATE|happy mail parcel #1

A close friend recently contacted me and asked if it would be ok for us to stop giving gifts for birthdays and Christmas as we generally just gift each other vouchers which seems a little pointless. She stressed that she'd still like to send cards, but maybe make a bit more effort with cards like making them or getting a really special one. 

I suggested that we could send surprise happy mail packages instead which she loved the idea of. She then suggested posting a post card with a joke or funny photo on every now and then too. 

So our little happy mail group was formed! 

I've put together my first package for her and for under £1 it's gone off first class, I can't wait until she receives it. 

In the yellow spotty bag, there are gems and some vintage buttons (my friend is a button collector).

The package contains some pages from smash books, and #projectlife cards. Bound together with bakers twine and some more buttons. 

I added a tiny little note from Cath Kidston and a wooden butterfly.

I really wanted to present it all in a glassine envelope so you peek at the things inside, I added some heart confetti too.

And finally, I added a sticker initial to the butterfly and taped it with the card to the front of the package.

I loved how it turned out and I'm sure she's going to be thrilled to bits.  I'd definitely appreciate this much more than a gift voucher.
