Snail mail has become the best part of our week! There’s never been a better time to become pen pals with your loved ones. Ari Levinson, Director of Partnerships at CAMP, teaches you how to create your very own stationery so you can send special handmade letters to your friends and family! Follow along with Counselor Ari’s Yoobi Mini Masters class live on Yoobi’s IGTV here!
What You’ll Need:
- Yoobi Paint Pens (or any paint you have!)
- Tape, glue or stickers
Step 1: Measure and cut. Measure the size of your card and cut it out. *Tip: Use a ruler if you prefer a straighter cut!
Step 2: Fold it. Fold your paper long ways into the shape of a greeting card.
Step 3: Design your own border. Grab your markers or Yoobi paint pens and color a fun design on the edges of your card.
Step 4: Let’s get threading. Get your thread and needle. Make sure you have enough to go around the edges. Poke your first hole into your card and start embroidering along the edges. *Tip: Tie a double knot so it doesn’t go through. Make sure to cut the string at the end of embroidering.
Step 5: Decorate! Decorate your card with some pizzazz! Add your flair to your card using your Yoobi paint pens, glitter, stickers, and more.
Step 6: Create an envelope. Using a ruler, cut out an 8x10 piece of paper and place your card at the bottom of the 8x10 paper. Fold the two edges inwards, over top of the card.
Step 7: Fold and seal. Fold the bottom of the page over the top of the folded edges. Use tape, glue or even stickers to seal the sides and the top.
Step 8: Stamp and send it off! Pop a stamp on the top right corner of your envelope, address it to your friend or family member, and send it out in the mail to make their day!
