Who doesn’t love receiving happy mail? The bright eggs, sweet treat and simple surprise of this fun and easy project waiting in the mailbox for someone is fabulous.
From sophisticated and sparkly, to bright and playful in the best colors of the season – all you need is a plastic mailing tube (ours are from here), Easter eggs, egg fillers and crinkle paper.
Three big eggs filled with jelly beans cost $3.04 to mail. Petite helped stuff the eggs (consuming a few jelly beans in the process) and package the tube. Then at the post office, our patient post office workers let her pick out stamps and helped her put them on the tube. We did not secure the ends of the tube, they fit quite snugly and I wasn’t afraid of them coming off, however, if I had been mailing anything but candy, I’d recommend taping the ends securely to prevent any curious handlers from opening your tube.
How fantastic would this be to send to a mom friend with some grown up spring treats inside (an Essie nail polish or dark chocolate)?
We’re smitten with the idea of an Easter Egg “hunt” in a tube and can’t wait to hear about your creative twists!
