There’s nothing better than receiving a heartfelt note in the mail — especially if it’s from a long distance friend or family member. Whether you’re reminiscing on a favorite memory or providing an update on your holiday, a postcard is a special way to tell someone, “I miss you!” or “Wish you were here!”.
Postcards are a great way to let someone know that you’re thinking of them and connect on a deeper personal level, when seemingly everything else has gone virtual. Creating postcards also makes for a fun activity to do with your grandkids or alone on a cozy evening in.
To send love from afar, Florida Panhandle created five adorable printable postcards you can DIY from the comfort of your own home. Simply print out your favorite, add a special note, and send off! Below are the materials you’ll need:
- Cardstock paper (recommended) or printer paper
- (Optional): Cardboard to add sturdiness
There are five different themes depending on who you’re sending a card to and what the occasion is. Where you’re looking for a get well soon card, happy birthday, or a “just because!” theme, find your favorite and download the printable postcard below.
With the state of the world, everyone could use a little extra love. It’s the perfect time to send a loving postcard to a family member and practice your calligraphy skills. Take a little extra time and effort to write a note and drop it off at the post office or postbox. Anyone would appreciate the thought!
When Megan shared these adorable cards with me, I just knew I had to share them with you! They are perfect for connecting with grandchildren across the miles or during a pandemic! Just print them out, add your personal touch, and drop them in the mail.
