Mousekeeping Tip Envelopes - DIY

I made Mousekeeping Tip Envelopes today! Actually, they are little pockets, as you can see from the picture. I know not everyone tips and that it isn't expected, but we enjoy leaving a little something each day.

It is really a personal preference. Not everyone tips. There is probably a huge range within the group that does tip. There will be 4 of us staying in our room (2 adults + 2 children), and we will be leaving $5 each morning.

Thumbs up

Thanks for posting this. I will pass it along to my DW. She is the scrapbooker and will love them. We will be at CSR in June for the CTMH convention.

Cute envelopes! Much nicer than the plain old white ones we decorate with stickers. LOL

By the way, I love your Dis name and pic!!

They are beautiful! I just put the Disney Character Stickers that I get in the Disney Movie Club offers on an envelope and write Mousekeeping. You are very creative.

Ha Ha I do the same as you with the very same stickers!! I don't think I have many left though so might need to go buy some stickers before our trip next month. Seems like we haven't been getting as many of the Disney Movie Club stickers lately.

We have heard a rule of thumb is $1 per person per day. So our family of 4 left $4 per day.
