Consol recently reached out to me and asked that I put together a little something using their new jars with coloured chalkboard labels. I decided to get creative and share a gift that could also lead to more giving or sharing down the line and that's how I came up with a Snail Mail Kit in a jar. The idea is really simple and easy to replicate as a special DIY gift for a friend. I included a pen, washi tape, envelopes, a few cards, a stamp and scissors. You can fill it with anything stationery related to get them started on their snail mail journey. I made use of other crafty bits and pieces too like buttons, glitter paper and tape, as well as small bells to decorate and add to the Olive Finch Christmas tag around the bottle's neck. It is so easy and fun to create - I hope it inspires you to get making this Christmas.
I bought my supplies mostly from Typo and one or two elements like the envelopes and glitter paper from a general craft shop. The MT washi tape is from Washi Bug. My Motex label maker from Love Letters Stationery also came in handy. As mentioned you can include anything creative so it's an easy DIY to shop for.
