So SIMPLE Note Cards



I had a baby shower to attend a few weeks ago, so the night before I wrapped her gift up beautifully and realized I had forgotten to buy a card for her!  Oops!  Do you ever do that or is it just me?

So I got out my old scrapbook supplies and paper and went to town trying to make a cute card to match the gift.

I really was so simple.  I choose 2 different papers and cut one slightly smaller then the other.

I used a brown ink pad to darken up the edges both pieces of paper. 

I used my grommet maker to make a hole for my flower on the top paper and attached the flower.

Then I attached both pieces of paper together and voila!  Instant, cute note card! 

I love it when I can come up with ideas that turn out cute and don't cost me a penny!  (my husband also loves that last part :-)

  1. I have gotten to the point that I never throw a card away. I disect it and use it for another person. Saves me tons- cards are so expensive and so are scrapbooking supplies!
