As I have been writing letters for the Bring Back Snail Mail challenge this month, it’s been so encouraging to come across more and more people who are creating snail mail in super creative ways. I started a letter-writing Pinterest board to collect ideas for my own letter-writing last summer, and it has been incredibly inspiring to see that snail mail is still going strong. (Insert happy cheer here!)

One of the things I like to do to make letter-writing fun is create my own stationery and cards when writing letters. It isn’t very difficult to do and you can customize every aspect of the card. (Adding a quote to the bottom of the back of the card is one of my favorite ways to personalize a card.) In the image above, you can see a few methods I use to create cards that don’t require buying a bunch of fancy supplies.

How to Make Letter-writing Fun – Make Your Own Cards

  • Buy plain white stickers and decorate them using gel pens and colored pencils. That’s what I did in the picture above for the cat stickers. (You can find these stickers in office supply stores.)
  • Draw a small image, cut it out, and affix it to a plain card using glue dots. I love how the glue dots add a 3-D look to cards. You could also have your child draw an image for the decoration. You’ll get bonus points from Nana for that one.
  • Use a paper punch (like the butterfly one in the image above) to punch gift wrap or scrap paper. Affix the punched designs to a plain card. There are so many beautiful paper punches on the market now. You could create a unique card even if you don’t consider yourself much of an artist.

In light of all the letter-writing going on here at Little Girl Designs, I’m sharing ten ideas on How to Make Letter-writing Fun over on eBay this morning. You’ll find my tips along with lots of resources to help get you started. Wouldn’t it be a sweet gift to create a package of hand-picked snail mail items for someone this Christmas? I think so. :)

Hope you have a lovely {and creative} day!

  1. Welp, you finally got me to get Pinterest because I spied a washi tape bird card that you pinned, and well, I just couldn’t resist. I love letter writing so much, and your challenge gave me some things to consider for future letters! So thanks!

    1. Oh, I’m so glad, Maggie! :) I’ve been finding so many fun ideas for snail mail on Pinterest so had to start a board. :) I’m glad you were inspired. :) Have a great day!
