Smile Cards, Notes and Little Surprises
--by maer, posted Jul 1, 2009
I have a little book of 'sticky notes' I purchased at a card shop at Christmas time, not sure who I would give the notes to or if I would use the individual funny notes at work. Well, I finally figured out how to use them.
I selected about 10 different notes, added my own little messages to them and placed them in envelopes w/ a smile card. One says how everything tastes better with hot fudge on it, so I will buy a jar of hot fudge to have ready to pass on to someone. One mentions a relaxing bubble bath so that will go with a nice bottle of bath bubbles. One jokes about popcorn so of course I will attach some microwave popcorn to the envelope. A couple envelopes have money in them for a treat which the sticky note mentions and so on.
On the backs of the envelopes I have penciled in what is inside or what should go with it so I can easily give them out when the occasion arises. On some envelopes I wrote things like, "If you found this, it's for you," or "Finder's keepers... this is yours."
