Have you ever been in the situation of needing a quick gift? I’ve got a solution: Personalized stationery makes a GREAT gift!
Whether it’s a gift for a friend, teacher, relative or even a gift for yourself – this is a gift you can easily make with little or no hybrid experience.
To begin, I created a 4.25 x 5.5” page in my photo editing program. Choose the papers you would like to use and fill the page with pattern paper.
For my note cards I used Amy Sumrall’s Little Bunny Foo Foo Kit. I used the red and white polka dot paper for one set of note cards and the green flowered paper for another set.
On the polka dot note cards, I then added a box inside the page (leaving about a ½” of the pattern paper showing on the edges) and set the transparency of the box to 75%. This will create writing space for the note card. To personalize, I added the name centered at the top of the transparent box.
For the flower note cards, instead of using a transparent box I used the white pattern paper from the Little Bunny Foo Foo kit as the center of the cards. I also added some digital stitches by Pri Rocha to embellish them further. Like the polka dot set, I added the name centered at the top of the white pattern paper.
To print the note cards, you can fit four to an 8.5 x 11” page if you have borderless printing, otherwise you can fit two per page. Now just print and cut them out (I said this was easy!).
I decided to include a set of 6 note cards and envelopes for each set and wanted to package them in a fun way. I used a cello bag for the polka dot note cards and made a matching topper for the bag. I also decided to use the flower embellishment from Amy’s kit to add to the front of these cards. I printed the topper and seven flower embellishments on one page. I used a 1 ¾” circle punch to punch out the centers of the flowers and added one to each note card plus one to go on the bag topper. I packaged the cards and envelopes, adhered the topper to the bag and added some ribbon and a button to the topper.
For the flower note cards I simply wrapped a yellow gingham ribbon around the cards and envelopes and tied it in a bow. I then added a flower and button to the center of the bow.
