Kite-String Envelope

Introduction

A string of envelopes, like the ones here, looks celebratory and lets an entire group or family chip in for a present -- an ideal way to honor a new graduate, newlyweds, or anyone who happens to be saving up for something special.

Include one envelope for every family member who wishes to contribute, plus one extra; each person writes a note on a small gift card to slip into his or her own envelope.

The pooled money is placed in the final envelope. To attach envelopes to string, use double-sided tape; or cut an extra-long piece of string, and wrap and knot each envelope individually. Hang string from mantelpiece, next to stockings, or as a garland on the tree.
