If you flip through the pages of all the Gadanke journals that people have shared, you’ll see a lot of really fun ideas for the mini envelopes that come in many of our writing prompt journals. I absolutely love these envelopes.
Let me show you what I did with the one that comes in the She journal.
First, my supplies:
- She journal
- German pens
- Paper tape
- Alphabet stamps similar to these
- An older version of this black stamp pad
1. I stuck a piece of paper tape across the envelope.
2. Dipping the letter stamps into the black ink, I started spelling. My original plan was to say “Poem in my pocket,” but there wasn’t enough room. So I drew a heart and filled it in with my red pen.
That’s it for the envelope. Pretty easy, huh?
3. I printed off a copy of one of my favorite childhood poems – The Swing by Robert Lewis Stevenson – and wrote a few notes about why I think I liked this poem so much. (Obviously, I can’t exactly remember, though I do remember reciting it on the swing set in the back yard.)
4. I folded the paper up and stuck it in the envelope.
It’s an easy entry with a rich story. Try it!
