Introduction: How to Secure a Date

About: I like to make things. Either out of necessity, being cheap, or just because I can.

Results may vary. I just thought I'd ask my friend on a date a different way. This is just a letter with a reply postcard inside. I prefer to make everything myself, this way it seems like I went out of my way. And its basically free this way.


Optional materials:

Step 1: Write the Letter + Postcard

I used cardstock my mom uses for scrapbooking. Luckily enough I could see through it enough to trace the words from my laptop screen. This way you can get decent looking handwriting. I thought about printing it but writing it yourself is always better in my opinion.

The letter reads:

Dear Haley,
I would like to take you on a date. If you get lucky, we could even play boggle.

Please reply with your response.


1st picture is the letter

2nd is the back of the postcard: After I finished it I thought it would have been better if I only had put yes....

3rd is the front of the postcard

Step 2: Make an Envelope

Never done this before. Tried to make measurements. Used a sheet of my mom's scrapbooking paper. Pretty awesome because you have two patterns, or at least one pattern and the other side plain.

I messed up on the envelope pretty bad....

Step 3: Wait to See If Works

I'll update to tell everyone if I got a yes or no.
