Sending Some Love in the Mail

Love in a Can

I love surprises. Well, I guess I should say good surprises :) When I saw this Valentine’s Garland Mailer DIY on Oh Happy Day, I knew I had to make some for a few of my friends.

I made these “you are loved” garlands to be the main part of the gift. I made mini pompoms using the fork method and cut out letters from old cereal boxes.

Then I got some candy, made some confetti, and printed out little papers with encouraging words on them.

I unfortunately couldn’t find any small cute mailing tubes like the one in the tutorial, so I bought some pringles and cleaned the cans out to use. I covered them in scrapbook paper, then tapped the end of the garland in. I filled the can up with everything, wrapped it all up in brown package paper, and sent it on it’s merry way to my friends.

I really loved this idea and think I will use it more often :)
