On Christmas Eve, Harry will come down to breakfast to find a telegram from the North Pole wedged in the hearth, delivered by elf post from the big man himself. ’Flying over tonight’ it says, together with instructions for how Harry should prepare…
We’re lucky enough to have a huge fireplace right next to the breakfast table, so I imagine it will catch Harry’s eye over the Cheerios and build the (already high) anticipation!
I designed this based on pictures of old British and US telegrams, and then used the Traveling Typewriter font which you can download free here for the text. If you want to print and adapt one of these for the little people in your own life, I’ve added printable versions below; this first one just needs you to add the child’s name;
And for the second one, I’ve left it blank so that you can add whatever text you like to customise.
When you’ve printed it, you can mount on cardstock (red would look lovely), or simply use pinking shears for a decorative postal edge. If you don’t have a hearth, the doormat would be a perfect alternative…
