This beautiful post on A Creative Mint had me thinking about rich shades of purple, lavender, linen, and white. It reminded me of this pad of 50 sheets of cardstock I had picked up on clearance at JoAnn’s ($3.17) a long time ago. We put it to good use today!
Handmade Holidays — Snowflake Notecard Mailers
November 19, 2009 by
First, I cut each 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock in half to measure 4 1/4″ x 11″. This was the perfect size to make notecard mailers! I used my corner rounder on all the corners for a more finished look, and folded each card into thirds.
Emily came to help stamp the cards with white snowflakes….
….and painted on some glitter glue! I think she was showing great restraint here, as she would have loved to cover the entire card with glitter glue. Instead, she painted one edge plus the corners.
I drew some lines for an address, and added a stamp where the postage would go.
When they were completely dry, we wrapped them up with some lavender raffia.
So pretty! Emily is still working on making more of these to send out to some of her friends. If it helps to encourage letter-writing…. I’m all for it!
