Kids crafts: Envelope Surprise tutorial

What I love about this is you don’t have to do anything expensive, just take the person for a treat or write them a poem. The other thing I love is that it is pretty easy to do. Just have people email notes or artwork then all you have to do is print them out and tuck them in the envelope. It’s a generous and thoughtful gesture that doesn’t take a lot of time or money.

Kids crafts: Envelope Surprise tutorial

Paper crafts for kids

Materials Needed:

-Envelopes in several colors we used A6 from Paper Source
-2 Packages of Vinyl Letters in Helvetica. Get these from any art store
-Double Sided Tape to hang the envelopes
-Emails and Gift Certificates from every person (this part takes the longest to round up, so start on this early.)

Step 1. Contact friends and family about the project and ask if they want to contribute. Give them a deadline.

Step 2. Place the numbers on each envelope. They are self adhesive so its easy!

Step 3. Print out emails and surprises and place them in the envelope. (You may need to go pick up a few gift certificates in person around town.)

Step 4. Hang all the envelopes up somewhere the person will see it everyday with double sided tape. Then surprise them with it on the first day and show them how it works.





This would be great for someone just graduating from high school or college. Notes of support or fun things getting them through the last days of finals. It would work great for Father’s Day or Mother’s Day. For a Coworker (would definitely brighten up someone’s work space.)
