I could never understand how some people managed to get it all done during the holidays - cards, letters, presents, and dinners (when did they sleep??) - while I could barely get the tree dressed in time for Santa, so it was such a relief to read Jodi's post a few years ago.
These days I like to write letters in the new year, sending best wishes and thank you notes for presents received during the holidays.
Materials you will need: sheet paper, ruler, bone folder, cutting mat, exacto knife, and marker
Step 1: Divide paper into thirds and score across the width of the page with the bone folder and ruler.
Step 2: Write a header in the top section of the paper, making sure each letter touches the scored line.
Step 3: Cut letters out with an exacto knife but keep the bottoms attached (where they meet the scored line).
Step 4: Write a message in the middle section of the paper.
Turns out, a heartfelt note can be just as sentimental after the holidays (or at least that's what I tell myself).
You could also send someone a love letter, since a certain holiday is just around the corner...
