Quick Handmade Notecard Gift Set

 
I’m continuing my week of quick handmade holiday gifts with these notecards. In just 30 minutes, you can whip up a set of 8 notecards. Depending on the papers and stamp that you use, you can either give the set as a gift or you can keep it for yourself to send out thank you notes after the holidays.
Supplies:
9 cards & 8 envelopes (bought in the papers section of your local craft store)
2 sheets of coordinating scrapbook paper
2″ wide stamp
Glue
Paper Cutter

Cut one card into 2″ squares. I got 12 squares out of a single card. This is more than enough.

Stamp your image onto the front of each of the cut squares.

There are 4 extra – just pick the 4 that have mistakes or are too light, and toss them.

Cut your scrapbook paper. 4 pieces from each paper that is 2.5″ square, and 4 pieces from each paper that are 1″ tall, and as wide as needed for the card.

Glue the stamped squares onto the scrapbook paper squares.

Time to put them all together. Glue a strip down to the front of a card, and then glue a stamped square in the alternate color on top.

Once you’ve made all 8, tie the cards and ribbon into a neat little gift.

Now to decide… are you keeping them or gifting them?

I have five more days of Handmade Holiday Gift ideas, be sure to come back again tomorrow!
