Mini Love Notes

Remember how everything is so much cuter in the mini version? Well, the same is true for love notes.

My husband and I are doing the long distance relationship thing right now as he is doing medical school rotations all around the country. And as “fun” as it sounds to take 2 kids and travel with him we decided to stay put and just visit as often as we could. {And a huge applause to those of you that do the long distance thing because, man, is it hard!}

I know my husband gets lonely at times and misses us, so I decided to make him a set of mini-love notes to open at times he is needing a pick-me-up. You could even do it as a countdown – open one each day until he comes home. These are so easy to make and I guarantee you have the supplies on hand – paper and glue!

Supplies Needed:

*Paper

*Cardstock

*Glue

*Pen

First you’ll need to cut out a bunch of hearts from the paper. Each envelope is made from a paper heart – so cute, right?! Then fold each of them into an envelope.
Glue each envelope onto a piece of card stock. You can do as many or as few as you’d like. Then cut small pieces of paper to put into each of the envelopes and don’t forget to write a sweet or funny message on each one.
I even slipped a stamp in one with instructions for him to write me a love note back!

  1. Erika!!! I love this!!! I have made little note books with normal ole’ store bought envelopes in the past and I have been trying to think of a cute way to improve my idea. You, cute girl, have come up with the best idea ever!!! I’m stealing this for all my future secret love notes! Love, love, love!!! xox <3

  2. Loved this idea, my friend is at basic training. So I used this idea to send him some letters. I hope he has the best looking letters there đŸ™‚

    1. I don’t have a template, Dani. I just free handed it! But I would say my hearts were about 3 inches tall and 4 inches wide? I made a few hearts until I found a size I liked and then I used that as my template and traced a bunch. Good luck!

  3. I just made these for my boyfriend who is on the road 90% of the time, thanks for the great idea!
    I made 6 envelopes about your size and 2 bigger ones that I put in the middle. I did a couple cute notes, one stamp to write me, dinosaur confetti(inside joke), and a couple temporary tattoos with instructions in each envelope! can’t wait to get pictures each time he opens one!

    1. I just read the others. haha. Maybe your could trace it and scan it to here? that would be most helpful. I love creative ideas but my drawing skills are reall bad

  4. I just made this for my boyfriend’s birthday who is away at an internship for 9 more weeks. It’s too cute! I combined it with another idea I found and put times when he can open each envelope on his birthday. I can’t wait to hear his response. đŸ™‚

  5. I just stumbled onto this site and I LOVE it! I just made this for my boyfriend. He graduated in December and I am still at school. He is working 50+ hrs a week 3 hours away. I made it so that there were 5 envelopes and labeled one for each weekday for him to open. I can’t wait for him to get it in the mail!!
