The holidays are here and Christmas presents are on the brain! I made these oh-so-pretty cards last year, and I plan on making more. Perhaps this year I’ll actually give them away to someone. Orrr just keep them for myself again. Who knows.
I’m a big fan of stationery. I think the written word is dying on us, so I do my best to correspond with it. I especially believe in thank you notes! Even (especially!) at Christmas, thank you’s need to be sent, and I have an extremely inexpensive way of personalizing them.
I picked up a package of blank white notecards at Hobby Lobby. They were about $4.00 with a coupon.
My madness in action involves my Silhouette machine, but you could easily choose designs that don’t involve intricate cuts. I’m crushing on pink and gold now, so I just used a combination of the two to come up with some pretty designs. I used some glue sticks to apply the shapes and a little bit of ribbon to add some dimension.
Of course, presentation is half the battle, so I love to choose a simple satin bow as my wrapping. While I had everything on hand already, I imagine you could do this project for less than $10.00. The good thing is that you could make multiple gifts for people since there are so many cards! Sooooo….$2.00 per gift? Not bad!
Thank you for letting me share my frugal idea, and I hope it encouraged you to think a little differently about giving presents this year! Good luck and happy holidays!
