Mailing cookies to a few dear, but far off family members has become a tradition the past few years. This year we went simple-flat rate boxes! But we jazzed them up a bit with stencils. We also packed the cookies in oatmeal boxes and cushioned them with pages from Christmas catalogs to make it more festive.
Last year we went all mail themed:
Card and matching tissue paper
...but it needed some more stamps to cover the postage and some tape to secure it...wait, who am I kidding? Lots of tape!
In 2012 we used tins:
They were just a dollar, and worked great with just a stripe of packing tape each direction to be sure it was secure.
We used some pretty tissue paper to line them for a little cushioning.
The name “Smiles Sent Saturday” denotes my hope these things I mailed made the people who got them smile.
