Security Envelope Tutorial :: 10 Reasons Why I Love You

My friend Kerri inspires me. She has a special knack at making ordinary things super special—especially anything that has to do with paper. So every time I get a piece of mail from her, I smile and do the happy dance. She recently sent me a piece of mail that inspired this project.

First, doodle 10 Reasons Why I Love You onto a piece of paper.

Write and doodle messages onto shipping tags, and insert them into the envelope.
