Easy & fun DIY Snail Mail Decorating Idea

Today, I’m sharing a DIY for how to decorate your snail mail, packages, gift packaging, etc.  My daughter calls it fancy Nancy packaging. We have an online shop on the Poshmark app and send packages out to customers almost daily.

I’m always trying to figure out ways to make them cute & fun, but at the same time quick & cost effective. Not an easy task. Especially, with so many ideas to act on!

Here is my latest idea. It’s quick & cute & it’s super fun to make. What do you think?

DIY snail mail 1I started off by punching some tabs & circles, then printed out a sheet of round thank yous to fit on top of the punched circles.

I used my bone folder to get a nice crease on the tab. No bone folder lying around? Anything with a straight edge will work like a ruler, a butter knife (or even plastic knife) or the flat end of a citrus peeler.

To put it all together, I arranged it & then stapled it onto the label insert envelope. I put a piece of washi on it as well, ’cause I can’t send any mail without some washi tape! 😄

Now I need to design a package insert thanking them again, & adding my biz info, etc.
