Staying in touch with people who matter to you is really important. And sending a handwritten note is a very special way to do that. But what if the envelope was also more than just the name and address? What if you added a little piece of artwork or design it in a clever way?

Decorating an envelope is a sweet and powerful way to make a statement. There are literally thousands of ways to decorate your envelope and many are just simple and fun. They all take a little time, but are well worth the end result.

Decorated Envelope class will give you 6 different ideas as well as spark many more. You will also get some ideas of what to say IN the note if you need some idea starters.
