Freebie Christmas Card Mailing

Hard to believe that December is nearly here! My internal alarm is pinging me to get into high gear about my Christmas mailing. (I always make a promise to myself to finish before Dec 1 but that never happens). As you know, I tend to go one step further with my cards than most. Along with the greeting I send a little surprise. Last year it was screen printed tea towels, the year before retro bookplates - you get the idea. What can I say? I'm a sucker for the holidays.

I'm working on this years mailing now but in a fit of procrastination I worked up a freebie download for you to use (should you want to send out a little extra surprise to your friends and family this year).

Its a little self mailer just big enough to staple two bags of peppermint tea inside along with your personal greetings. Just seal with glue and drop in the mail. (In case you are wondering, peppermint tea smells just like Christmas!)

Hope some of you can put it to good use. If you use my freeibe or you have your own unique twist on the holiday mailing idea, I would absolutely love to hear from you. Don't be shy - leave a comment here or drop me a line.

  1. What a great idea. I love the style of the writing.

    I've recently discovered some medication for colds and flu that tastes JUST like mulled wine. I have to say I almost look forward to having a snuffle so I can take one.....

    Maybe I should mail those out this Christmas!!

  19. I love this idea, thanks for sharing. You can always add a honey or agave stick in this card. That is a nice "BONUS" to the card.

    Inspired by Design...

    I just tried to get these printed at FedEx Office and the employee told me USPS won't send this since it's a tri-fold with no sides. Is this true? I already bought 60 tea bags! I think I will take a sample card to USPS to see if they'll send it.

    I've never hear of that but if they really won't I would just add a bit of glue or tape to close up the edge. Provided you pay the correct postage, the post office seems to mail just about anything as far as I can tell.

    Thanks so much for the quick reply! That's what I figured, as well. I'll try again tomorrow. Thanks for the template - I love this design!
