The "Cracker Jack" Prize...for letters!!!
What do you like to tuck into your letters? I call them little enclosures. Over the years I have received or sent book marks, mini-cards with encouraging words on them, photos, interesting articles, recipes, tea bags, just about anything flat that would go through the mail in an envelope! I guess I would liken it to the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks , or a box of cereal....not essential, but nice... just another thing that says " You're special to me...let me add just one more thing!"
My all time favorite enclosure is pressed wild flowers. I love wild flowers. Bachelor Buttons , if I had to pick are my favorite, but they are all so lovely I hate to pick! I routinely pick flowers to press between the pages of my Jansen &Jansen art History book (I think this is the heaviest book that I own!) . This is perfect for pressing flowers.
These are all that I have from last year! But see how nicely some of them retain their color??
So keep an eye out for interesting items that could possibly put a smile on someone's face...like finding the prize in the bottom of the Cracker Jack box!
