I love this idea! Can you please give me examples of when the other envelopes say after "Open when..." Thank you so much!!
I was going for the same infOrmation
I found this from another pin: @Julianne Christensen (She took the original photo) "Of course! I bought a BUNCH of cards ranging from funny birthday cards, to love cards, to encouragement cards, etc.. Then I wrote a personal note in each. Depending on each card, I wrote when he should open it. I don't remember everything I did, but some were like this: When you are missing me, when you are frustrated, when you are having a bad day, when you need a pick me up, when you need encouragement, when you are close to coming home, when you are missing home, when you need a smile, when you just want to laugh, on your birthday... that's all I can remember at the moment :) I hope this helps!!" (Going to update photo description with some of this information)
I saw this somewhere else:
Open when you need to know how much I love you
Open when you’re mad at me
Open when you miss me
Open when you’re lonely
Open when you’re happy
Open when you’ve had a long day
Open when you’ve had a bad day
Open when you’re sick
Open when you’ve left me after visiting
Open when you can’t sleep
Open when you’re horny
Open when you’re imagining our future
Open when we can’t communicate with each other
Open when you need a reminder of all the things I love about you
Open when you need motivation/encouragement.
Open when you need to laugh.
Open when you’re bored.
Open when we’re fighting (and it’s you’re fault)
Open when we’re fighting (and it’s my fault)
Open when you need a kiss (which I added a candy kiss in the letter haha)
Open when you miss America (because he is also deployed and I love photography so, I added a lot of pictures I have taken of the beach and stuff)
Open when you need some lovin’ (take a piece of paper and lay it on a flat, hard surface and grab some lipstick; put A LOT of the lipstick on and kiss the paper as it lays flat; now they will have a bunch of kissies from you!)
Wonderful ideas, @Erin Nizolak! Thanks for the comment. This could be a great deployment project.
10 deployments in 25 years and I did this for the manalmost every one. Not a new idea still a great one!
This is amazing. Thanks for such a wonderful idea. 6 months seems like forever.
Thank you!!! He will LOVE this! I love your posts!
What did you put in some of those?
Letters, pictures, I printed out sudoku and crosswords for "when you get bored", just thinking of you cards, I puts gift card in one also. They are just envelopes so there is not much room but @MilitaryAvenue.com has great care package ideas on her board if you wanted to send something bigger but the envelopes work great for a quick reminder and they look forward to the specific times they can open each one
This is amazing! Thank you so much pinning this idea!
love this for a care package!
Another good deployment idea
going to do this!
