Junior Mints are 13 ounces or less


I was looking for a the perfect Valentine to mail and I found it. Look at these! Did you know Junior Mints come heart shaped in February? This alone is cause to celebrate. (They would go perfect with a sappy love movie, any recommendations?) Plus it could get messy mailing Junior Mints in the summer. So I’d better mail them while I can. I’m off to the post office!
Check out 13 ounces or less on flickr for more mailable fun.

Coming next week:
My biggest giveaway. ever.
Kuddos to a couple men who gave really great gifts.
One more freebie.
And much more Valentine fun.

Wow. It will really be a good week. Can’t wait to see you then.

and incase you’d like to see a little more, here is my favorite fun mail inspiration from the archives (or see it all right here):

A Great Big Sponge | A Tube of Bert’s Bees | A Wreath and Twinkly Lights | A Disguise | School Supplies | A Pair of Flip Flops | A Big Ball | Plastic Eggs 1 and 2 | Silly Putty |Shovel & a Bucket | Ribbon Sticks | Bubblewrap Hopscotch | Fan Mail | Waterbottle Care Package | Bouncy Balls | Sticky Notes | Jr Mints | Frisbee | Mini Banner and Mini m&ms

I love this series, but I’m always wary that if I mail candy like that, the box will arrive empty!

What an adorable idea! Thank you for sharing!

I need to hunt down some of these mints to send to my nieces and nephews. This is a fantastic idea.

I wonder if the small box of conversation hearts would be too small?

Yay! Jr Mints are the best. I’m so happy to know this.


Michelle February 5, 2010 at 4:59 pm

Oh my gosh, that’s fabulous. I didn’t know you could just send a box of food like that!

Hi there, love these ideas of yours. Never would have thought of mailing candy but that would be so fun to recieve in the mail. I’m hooked on garlands and the moment. Thinking of sending several paper ones next week for VDay.

Okay, I’m officially obsessed with your website. For real. Can I come live with you and just follow you around as you do all of these awesomely awesome things?! Awesomely awesome. That’s how tongue-tied I am because my mind is reeling from all of your goodies and tips; I can’t think of anything better to say than awesomely awesome. You now have a new follower. I’ll try not to become Follower turned Stalker.

Sorry to have to post this here but since I can’t find a way to contact you via e-mail, this will have to do. :D I’m an avid reader and I absolutely love the ’13 ounces or less’ idea. I was actually browsing a few days ago for a few valentine’s day ideas and I ran across this crafter’s etsy site: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15215264

I loved her idea and thought maybe you could share it with others. <3

You are right, I absolutely LOVE these. I am going to see if she can add to my flickr group, or will have to write a post about them. They are so sweet. Thanks for thinking of me.

This is the BEST!!! thanks for sharing!

I am using this idea for creative Chrismas cards. I have boxes of peanut m&ms, I cut out the fronts of old christmas cards and attached the back of the box, then addressed the front. Now I just need to figure out how many stamps it takes. How many stamps did your 4oz box of junior mints cost?


AmberLee December 7, 2011 at 9:38 pm

Hi Susie,
This is so fun! And here’s a little tip I found for postage for first class packages:
First three ounces: $1.71
Each additional ounce up to 13 oz (begins at 4 oz): $0.17

This blog is the bomb. I’m so in love with all your ideas.

So I tried this today… we will see if they get there.
My son handed them to the postal worker and he said
Postal worker: “you’re going to send them just like that?”
Me: “yes is that a problem”
PW: “I hope not” “I guess it is sealed well”
Me: “it is in a box”
PW: “ok I guess it will work”

I really don’t know what will happen if I try to send a football or something. We shall see. Oh and it was about $2.40 a box (kinda pricey since I got the jr. mints at dollar tree).
