Monogrammed Envelope for Mother’s Day


Each year I try to come up with something unique and personal to send my mom on Mother’s Day. She love’s handwritten letters, so why not add a custom monogrammed envelope that she can keep the letters or use for something else – maybe to hold makeup or coupons. Something small she can carry that will remind her how special she is to all of us kids ♥ This project is very easy and only takes about 30 minutes (even faster if you are on the Brother Entrepreneur 10-needle)
