Free Printable | Snail Mail Card

We're a week in to my Final Warehouse Sale, so I thought I'd share a free printable for my snail-mailing friends. (Also, snails are quickly becoming my favorite thing to doodle.) It's a super simple A2 folded card, but there's so much you can do to decorate it...including stamp it!

Free Printable | Christmas Snail Mail Coloring Sheets

Santa's Snail Mail Bag | Alternative to Wrapping Paper | DIY Reusable Mini Gift Bag | Pretty Peas Paperie

Happy December! Is it just me or does your Christmas shopping list double once you have a kid? Our adults-only list has suddenly grown to include entire families, friends' babies, godchildren, and furbabies. I was trying to think of some fun stocking-stuffer-type trinkets to tie to gift cards, and came up with this idea as I was styling a photo for one of our Christmas stamps. (I'm 100% sure someone else has probably done this, but I made you a free printable to make it easier!)

Here it is :: a mini coloring kit!

Supplies Needed:

There are so many fun things you can fit in these things—baby sunglasses, a whistle, candy, erasers, jewelry, gift cards—why not skip the paper wrapping altogether and gift your tiny items in a cute, reusable bag!

  7. Write a personal note on the back and mail to someone you love!

By the way...how amazing is the donut seal?! I discovered that you can hole punch glue gun sealing wax. (!!!) Simply make your seal ahead of time, rather than apply it directly to your envelope. Squeeze the wax onto a non-stick pan, wax paper, or parchment paper...press your wax seal stamp down, and let dry. (It's quick.) Then, use a standard hole-punch to make your donut hole!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! Thanks so much for your entries! We'll notify the winner soon. :)

Free Printable | Envelope Liners

Envelope liners are the perfect way to spruce up your snail mail, and today I'm sharing 6 free designs that you can print from home!

This philodendron pattern paired with a coral envelope makes me want to go on vacation.

These little snails are doing a fine job of delivering their mail.

Cacti can look so sophisticated in black, white, and blush.

Donut worry...I have an envelope liner (and wax seal) to satisfy your sweet tooth!


Supplies Needed:

  • Envelope Liner PDF (download above)
  • A printer
  • Matte photo paper or text-weight paper (1 8.5″ x 11″ sheet per liner)
  • Envelope Liner Templates to match your envelope (my favorites are from Paper Source)
  • Scissors
  • Double-Sided Tape

As always, these printables are free for personal use only and may not be redistributed, copied, or sold. Please share the project with a link to this post. Tag us on Instagram with @prettypeaspaperie, #prettypeaspaperie.


Assembly is easy-peasy, but here are some notes:

1. Print the liner of your choice on a sheet of matte photo paper or text-weight paper. (Super thick paper won't fold very well.) Use your high quality (or photo quality) print setting for best results. Note :: Each 8.5″ x 11″ sheet fits 1 liner.

2. Using pencil, lightly trace around your envelope liner template.

3. Cut out the envelope liner.

4. Slide the liner inside the envelope and place it where you want it. Fold your envelope to crease the liner. NOW, remove the liner and put a small piece of double-sided tape near the top of it (on the back, of course). Slide the liner back in, make sure it's placed correctly, then stick it! (I don't recommend putting tape on the bottom portion of the liner because it will crinkle when you fold the envelope. A single piece of tape allows the liner to move a bit as the envelope is closed and sealed.)

Stick around because I'm about to post a GIVEAWAY!
