homemade notecards

March 22, 2011
tags: , ,

Riding on the crest of last week’s creative wave (my brother’s birthday card project), I made a few thank you note cards and some envelopes too, borrowing the concept from another inspired blogger.

I selected papers that would otherwise have been headed for the recyling bin to make the note cards and left an open spot beneath the banner for my personal note.

I selected an old bound Texas road map for my envelopes and used two pages for each envelope.  A decorative page for the back and one of the blank “names and addresses” pages at the end of the book for the front.

 I folded and trimmed to fit, then added the little flourish on the rear flap.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Diane, these came out faaaaaabulous!

    They’re so dang awesome!

    I’m totally in awe at your ability to create stuff like this?!

    What a great way to recyle, and at the same time give something that is so unique!

    I think you should open an Etsy Shop!

    Hope you had a grand Tuesday!

    X to you and Cristy!

    I’d be jumping with excitement if I got an envelope in the mail that looked like this. You probably had the post office employees smiling too.

    These are great. You’re really creative with all the things you think up. I might have a little go at this myself. It’s such a great way to use up little teeny tiny scraps of paper, isn’t it?

    Diane, I love your creativity, and the fabulous map upcycle! I’m feeling inspired to go out and find an old atlas of my own!

    Thank you for sharing more of your creative inspirations at Rook No. 17!
