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