Mailing Cards with Flowers

I had so many requests on mailing flower cards, I wanted to post this for you today. 

If I don't have any SU Padded Envelopes on hand, I use an 8 1/2 by 11 Bubble mailer.  This is how I redo the mailer to fit my envelope…Shipping cards with Flowers, Carla's Scraps, How to ship cards with flowers. (1)

As you see in the picture above, I measure the card by laying it along the bottom of the mailer and then I cut off the layer above it along the back side.  Using the piece I just cut off, I wrap the card.Shipping cards with Flowers, Carla's Scraps, How to ship cards with flowers. (3)

Sliding the wrapped card down into the pocket I created.  I then wrap the rest of bubble mailer around my card, seal and label.Shipping cards with Flowers, Carla's Scraps, How to ship cards with flowers. (2)

You don't see it in the picture, but I did put a piece of clear mailing tape of over the label and the seam.  It cost me $1.71 to mail each.  Here's my receipt for mailing 5 of them all over the United States.  One went to Florida, one to Maryland, one to Texas, one to Virginia and one down the road from me.  Shipping cards with Flowers, Carla's Scraps, How to ship cards with flowers (1)

I hope this encourages you to create beautiful cards with flowers and not fear mailing them.  *smile* 

I'll be back with a post tomorrow with the rest of my Christmas cards.  Hope to see you then. 

Hugs, Carla

P.S.  if you look closely at the receipt, the weight isn't the same on all cards, as I used a couple SU Padded envelopes and one was a small box.  But all the same price to mail.  Very inexpensive for a pretty gift.  The very bottom one on the receipt is the envelope in the picture above.

A brilliant idea! Would be so sweet to ship cards to someone for their birthdays, too.
