It's why opening your mailbox to find a handwritten note from a loved one, or better yet, a card that was actually handmade just for you, feels like such a crazy-special occasion and a reason to celebrate. With the help of Paper Mart—an online resource for everything from pretty ribbons to party supplies—we're bringing you an easy do-it-yourself stationary project that'll surely put a smile on the faces of the long-lost friends of your address book.

Step 1: "Fold your cardstock in half horizontally. Then cut the cardstock in half. You’ll have two potential envelopes to create!"

Step 2: "Tape up two of the sides, leaving the top open. We used three different types of tape, but the amount of tape and color combinations are up to you."

Step 3: "Fold the top of the envelope over to create a flap, which you can then decorate with tape! Slip a cute note in, tape it up and send it off!"
