Perhaps it was when I was whipping up campaign posters with “Laura for Class President!” Or, perhaps it was the years of giving home-made birthday cards to family members. Whatever the inspiration, I have used this (very simply) handwriting tip an infinite number of times. When you need to write a message that should “pop” or look “together,” try adding small dots to the ends of your letters and punctuation. Once you’ve got that down, you can get real creative and add triangles, curves, and all sorts of things to the ends of each letter. But, for now, if you are desperate to transform regular-old writing into something more visually appealing, try this on for size.
This has been a fun tip to pass along to Vivienne; it bumps the quality of her birthday cards up about ten notches. They look “finished” and “cared-about”.
Even if you have pretty lousy handwriting, a very well-placed dots can go a long way. 😉
