DIY Personalized Note Cards

december-2011-111I love making handmade gifts for the holidays. Whether it’s granola, cookies, or a craft, I like to use my hands and creativity to create something special for friends. My most recent project has been creating personalized note card sets. Using letter stencils and brown Kraft recycled note cards and envelopes, I traced my friends’ initials on fun scrapbook paper (I bought a big book of scrapbook paper years ago that has been great for projects like these) and then secured each letter onto a note card using a glue stick. I finished each set by collating the note cards and envelopes and tying it all together with natural jute twine. Three or four note cards make for a nice set. december-2011-116

I think the note card sets turned out well. It’s the kind of project anyone can do in the span of a few hours (I’m sure it would be a great project to do with kids, too). And while it’s a great handmade gift for the holidays, these note cards would be a cool gift any time of the year.
