When Shannon West demonstrated this at leadership I was taken back in time. As a young girl I used to spend my babysitting money on stationary sets so that I could write letters to my grandmother and friends. Being a military child my friends were always moving so there was lots of reasons to write letters. Some of you may remember letters (pre-email/text/twitter days). One of my favorite types of stationary was the self mailers. They were heavier weight and always had cute stickers to close them and you could keep your letters short.

This self-mailer is made from 12×12 cardstock that is free-hand cut. That is the scary (hard) part but fun at the same time. Just like being a kid again making home made hearts for valentines.

After cutting your heart – center a 1/4 sheet of cardstock on the heart – I am a wing it kind of gal and don’t measure a lot so what I did to make the process simpler is simply outlined my 1/4 sheet of cardstock with my bone folder, then used a ruler to extend the score marks to the edges of the heart.

To hold the card together I created a belly band that is secured with adhesive – the receive can pop the band open and unfold the heart! I used Hugs scallop notes for the address block on each of them
