Happy Mail :)

I sent out Happy Mail in October with a bunting, a letter, stickers, mini cards, tags, The Incredible Moodbear, pipe cleaner heart, confetti (enclosed in a clear pouch so it only flies everywhere if the recipient wants it too ;) ), and I can't remember if there was anything else. This was 4 days before I got my new camera; my old one having decided not to charge on the first day of our summer vacation. Therefore I don't have any pictures of that first Happy Mail, except for the mini cards which I made extras of:

Two weeks ago I sent out Christmas Happy Mail, yay! and I even took some pictures, double yay! The folders should be arriving soon, I know one recipient received theirs, so I'm going to post the pictures :) First I made these clips, hats and trees...
The hat I clipped to the outside and the tree went on the inside of the folder.

Glitter Sticker Tape: Twin Seven
Cardstock: Red - Sbc Bristol (180gsm, should have used heavier stock but couldn't find it in red here); Green - Fabriano Cartacrea (220 gsm, much better weight)

And here's a picture of what I included in the folder:

Fun stuff inside: 
Advent bunting, assorted tags for gifts, stickers, confetti (all sealed up), 2 shaped clips and a mini binder clip (actually there are 2 one is on the bunting tag keeping the bunting from unrolling), bling, and a sprig of holly leaves. I also put in Santa and Mrs. Claus magnets (not pictured, but I do have the couple on my refrigerator) I made from paper dolls found here.

Hopefully the Christmas Happy mail will brighten up some Christmases :)

Have a great day!
