In case you haven’t noticed, I really love projects. Â Like, when I am faced with a life event, my mind immediately starts racing about what kind of projects I can do and usually the more complicated the better. Â See once I have an idea, it feels like a high at every phase from conception of the idea all the way until the project is finished. Â This is what happened when I decided to send out moving announcements for ourÂ new house.
First, like everything in my life, I started my search on Etsy. Â I found amazing letterpress, digital, and even handmade announcements. Â However, none of them were just right. Â When I am searching for something, I can’t explain it-I just know when I see it that it’s what I’m looking for. Â This habit makes it very difficult for anyone to help me in my searches.
After etsy, I started thinking about moving, and boxes. Â Then I thought it would be neat to use cardboard to make some sort of postcard to mail to our loved ones. Â After about an hour walking around Michael’s trying to get ideas, I settled on some pretty vintage paper and some moving scrap book stickers.
From there, I went to the liquor store to do a little dumpster diving for boxes (classy, I know). Â I also went to the post office and grabbed a few address stickers and some priority mail stickers (both free).
Here is the finished (very affordable) product: Â I’m pretty happy with how they turned out!
So there you have it, handmade moving announcements that were fun, cheap and pretty easy make!!
Did any of you brides/new homeowners send out moving announcements?
