Pretty paper dress up


prettied notesDuring one of my “let’s get organized” moods, I discovered that I had a ton of craft supplies, especially paper goods–note cards, design paper, wrapping paper, scrapbooking paper, and even origami paper. They’ve all been sitting in a bin hidden away in the basement. I decided that it was time to put them to good use and turn them into something that I would actually use.

I write notes all the time, whether it’s a sweet note or a “honey do” list for my hubby or a note enclosed with a gift for my nieces or nephews. It’s a nice way of telling someone how you feel, giving a little reminder or writing just to say hello. Why not make those notes a little sweeter by adding that special touch? Here’s what you need to create these prettied-up note cards. Remember that you may very well have these pieces around the house to try to re-use what you currently have:


  • Colored note cards (I had a pack of 100 note cards in assorted colors for 99 cents!)
  • Scrapbook paper (I received a pack of paper as a baby shower gift)
  • Craft punches (I had three different flower designs)
  • Glue stick

All you need to do is punch out flower designs using various paper designs (including solid ones from the colored note cards) and adhere the flowers in any arrangement you like. It’s as simple as that! Not only are these great for writing notes to friends and family, they can also make great gifts too (Note to self: Christmas gifts!!)

So maybe the next time I write my hubby a “honey-do” list, he’ll be so impressed with the “sweet” delivery that he’ll do it without complaining…okay, okay they’re not miracle note cards!
