    1. Oh Brooke, I am so sorry to hear that. We lost my Father-in-law last year. I hope you do this and it’s able to ease your grief during this trying time. Nothing will make up for her loss but it is so special to have those moments in the years to come. Big hugs! XO

  3. I made these Open When Letters for my boyfriend that is in the military. He loves to open them when he is away serving our country. He says that he always look forward seeing what surprises are in each envelope…….I told him just don’t open them around other people LOL (some of them have private things in them). Thanks for the great idea

  4. When I did it for my boyfriend I purchased Heavyweight Brown Kraft envelopes with reusable clasp (from the dollar store they measure about 6X9 inches). It allowed me to add a few extra surprises to each one. For instant on the one for Open When its your birthday I put 2 birthday cards filled with confetti
