DIY projects surprises

Postcard Surprise DIY

This is a project for a campaign I’m doing with Yahoo! Mail on keeping in touch with family and friends. This project is a great idea for everyday, you don’t need a special occasion. The idea is you get an email from someone and then you answer it in postcards. For example someone might ask you about your weekend and you take pictures of all the things you did in response.

Here we cut out the question from the email and glued it onto the back of the postcard. Then we glued (or taped) a little description on the photo on the front and voila! They are ready to be mailed! You can mail the cards one at a time or send them all the same day. How fun for a grandma to get several different postcards that earn a prime real estate spot on the fridge!

Do you ever do everyday surprises for your friends and family? I’d love to hear what you do to keep in touch.

A special thanks to Aubrey Trinnaman for the photographs and for Alexis Birkmeyer for pulling everything together. I love them girls.
