This was so fun and inexpensive and I think it really brought a smile to their faces! Who doesn't love receiving mail? But add to it a bottle FILLED with fun goodies... now that's awesome!
And, not many people know you can just put stamps on an empty water bottle and toss it in the mail... I know I didn't until reading the Giverslog. So fun. Imagine opening your mailbox and finding "happy mail"... ahhh, so exciting!
Here's what I bought. All from Target dollar bins.
~ Heart erasers
~ Jelly stickers
~ foamy word stickers (love, hugs, kiss)
~ glittery heart stickers
~ those bracelets that are shaped like things (I forget the name).
Then I shoved it all into a water bottle, slapped a cute label on it and *voila*. We have "happy mail".
I weighed them and they came in at just about 3oz... according to USPS, that's 5 stamps.
All in all, I spent under $10 to make both these gifts and hopefully I made two little ladies very happy on Valentines day.
Did you notice that these gifts are actually from Marco and Jonas? My little casanovas. I had nothing to do with it... really.
