I know I’m a sucker for anything done out of love and a hint of a surprise, but really, how cute are these notecards that Victoria designed for surprise lunch notes?! I love them… and you… and everyone… so I’m happy to spread the surprise love with this these cute and easy DIY printable notecards for your kiddos and loved ones as the year starts back up.
In case you’re not quite to the stage of life that requires a packed lunches or soccer practice, we also have super cute desktop and mobile wallpapers for you! Don’t worry, I’m still in this category, too… unless my cat Thomas counts, which I don’t think so…
printer and printer paper or heavy cardstock
the downloadable templates (links below)
scoring board (optional)
glassine pouches (optional)
clear tape (optional)
With these printables, all you have to do is print, cut along the graphics, and then fold. I used a scoring board just to make the fold more crisp, but you obviously don’t have to do all of that! They can just be left folded, or you can glue or tape the fold to make a flat card rather than an envelope style notecard.
To make the surprise version, just write your note, tuck them into a glassine envelope to keep it food safe, and then wrap it all up!
In case someone happens to be having something a bit more sloppy then a sandwich (I’m talking to you, salad eaters), you can just tuck the envelope in their bag or pouch instead.
I really like the idea of hiding it away inside, but it’s totally up to you! Jared, on the other hand, thinks he had one too many traumatizing childhood experiences of biting into his Mom’s notes, so take what you wish from that, haha!
