Have you sent out your Christmas cards yet? Of course you have. Who waits this long? (Oh, right, me most years.) Well, just in case you still have a stack of envelopes sitting on your kitchen table, I have a tip that will make the card-sending process move a lot faster.
Use a glue stick to seal the envelopes. Yep, that’s it. Don’t mess with a dripping sponge and for Pete’s sake, don’t lick them. (You do remember what happened to George’s fiancee, right?)
Just glue them shut! It’s super fast, and if you’re slightly better than my three-year-old with a glue stick, it doesn’t make a mess at all.
In case you’re on the ball more than I am most years and have already sent your holiday cards, this tip also works well for thank you notes, birthday party invitations, shower invites and wedding invites.
Did you send out Christmas cards this year?

Great tip! And, no, Miss Mary, I did not send cards this year. I just had to let a few things go this year, and the cards were one of them. And also the lights outside because once I finally had time to do it it got too cold to go out. Ugh.
We’ve never done lights on the house, but after my daughter’s fascination with “Lights! Lights, Mommy! Look at all the pretty lights!” my husband might have to break down and put them up next year!
I always have the best intentions, but I’m poor on follow-through. I didn’t send out any cards this year. I already bought some cards, on sale, for next year, though ;-)
See that? You’re just planning ahead!
You. are. brilliant!
I made my 5 year old help me with the licking. Perhaps I should have paid more attention to Seinfeld!
Next year is the glue stick!
I think I originally figured this out when I sent invites in heavy envelopes. All the licking in the world wouldn’t keep them shut. After resorting to the glue stick, I decided I would never go back!
Oh man! I totally should have used a glue stick when I did mine. Blech – it was disgusting!
Next time!! Because yeah, licking is soooo gross!
