Edit #2. Dottie asked if the large glassine bags would fit 4 regular cards with envelopes. Definitely YES! If you wanted a more see through version that would fit even more cards, you could use Papertrey's clear card boxes shown HERE.
You guys know that I love to make little notecards by now. I decided to start making up some little gift packs of notecards to have in my gift stash. This way, when I need a little gift I can reach into my gift basket and have some items ready....instead of scrambling for a gift at the last minute. I plan to use these for teacher gifts, thank you gifts and just for those times when I want to give someone a little something special.
I started out by stamping some simple circle embellishments, using the new Just Rite Times Roman lowercase alphabet, and border stamp. I placed the alphabet letters and the border onto the small wooden stamper to create one complete stamp. I cut and embossed the circles with Spellbinder's Circle Nestabilities, then mounted them onto Spellbinder's Pinking Dies in Papertrey Ripe Avocado cardstock.
For the actual notecards, I used quater sheets of cardstock to create a 2 layer notecard with no folds. On the top layer of PTI Vintage Cream, I added a 1" x 3" strip of patterned paper from the Making Memories Noteworthy collection (an older collection, found at Archivers). I took a fine tip marker and drew some lines next to the patterned paper.
I then adhered my circle embellishments over the top of the patterned paper, leaving a little of the circle hanging over the top. Simply turn the paper over and trim off the excess with scissors.
Here's my finished notecards below. Very simple, with just enough space to write a quick note. I love the detail that the Spellbinders dies offer. You could also personalize these cards by switching up the Just Rite stamps that you use. You could add a monogram, a full name, etc.
I also created a matching notebook, using the same supplies as I did for my notecards(notebook from my stash, source not available). I added a strip of Papertrey Ripe Avocado stitched ribbon and a tied button. I'm in to simple packaging these days, so I opted for a Papertrey Large Glassine Bag. The notebook will be tucked inside for a very simple presentation.
The top of the bag is folded over and secured with an embellished clothespin, available at discount stores, Walmart, etc.
