Mission of Magic: Cellophane Window Messages





I hope somebody sees this. I hope they understand.

For somewhat of a tutorial, you can refer to our post in which we made cellophane window jack-o-lanterns for this past Halloween. Obviously cut out letters to write words instead of little jack-o-lanterns, you silly goose. And just remember to trace your letters backwards so when you put the thingy on the window with the nice side facing outward, the letters will be the right way (we almost forgot!).

This Mission idea is also featured in our Missions of Magic zine, which we've listed for sale at our Etsy shop for only $3! It comes with stickers and everything, and it would make heaps of fun for a little Christmas gift where you and the gift receiver embark on a Grand Mission to complete all the Missions of Magic in the zine before the day is done!

Have you been doing any Missions or random acts lately?

  2. I'm sure whoever sees this will love it! I know if I was walking past a house and saw this in my window it would make my day :) Also, I didn't notice until halfway through writing this comment that you're using disqus now. Yipee! xx

  3. Thanks, Emma! Wondering how many lives these kinds of random acts/Missions of Magic make it into is pretty cool, too. :)

  4. Thanks Erin! Wheee yay for Disqus! My email kept hiding forwarded messages in little "read more" type links and I was getting tired of it, so I figured what the heck? So far I like this much better; I don't even have to remember to forward you this reply; you'll just get it automatically! Disqus is gonna take over the Internet commenting world, you heard it here first (or probably like for the seventeenth hundred time because it's so obvious now, haha)!

    that right there, this post, this whole project is so beautiful! what a wonderful, wonderful idea. i do hope somebody DID see. i've often done little things like this on the back window of our van that's dusty from dirt roads. little messages like 'smile' or something like that. just for fun. just to brighten someones day. it's so fulfilling just to give.

  7. Ohh, my mom has written little messages on the back window of our car, too! There's this stuff called window chalk that's made for writing on windows and it's worked perfectly. She used to draw smiley faces and things sometimes too. We should start doing that again. :) It really is so rewarding even without knowing for sure whose hearts you're touching, or if it reaches anyone at all!

  9. Thank you Mary! I like to think every little speck of anything is important so even if I was just a speck, I mean maybe I wouldn't have my brain with me to contemplate this, but I would mean something.

  11. Thank you! I hope it got to somebody too, even one person, just one pair of eyes it caught and one heart it sunk into.

Silkworm and I love hearing what other people think. In fact, it's probably our favorite thing, so don't be shy to leave us a note or ask a question!
