Notecard Sets

When my daughter finished her internship, she wanted to present the staff with gifts. However, being an intern, that meant her checkbook wasn’t overflowing so she came to me asking for ideas.

Well what is more perfect that a personalized, hand made gift? She had taken some amazing photos throughout the year of her internship of the flora and fauna where she worked. I immediately knew exactly what she could do!

Over a year ago, I attended a card class that Sylvia, my former upline from The Angel Company, was putting on. In the class, we made notecard sets complete with a coordinating holder. They were adorable. I made these same card sets in school colors as thank yous for my son’s teachers last year. (It was one of the few times I forgot to take photos of my projects.)

Instead of using coordinating scraps of cardstock, my daughter used her beautiful photos as the covers for the notecards. She personalized each set of cards by selecting the photos especially for the recipients. They were simply gorgeous and everyone loved them.

The holders were made from a single 12 by 12 inch two-sided piece of cardstock. Each side of the holder could hold 2 or 3 notecards depending upon the thickness.

All it takes is a bit of scoring and some fancy folding to make the holders that stand up on their own. A bit of ribbon and a pretty bow and they are ready for filling!

I have included the folding instructions.  If you are having difficulty reading them, right-click on the directions and save them to your computer so that you can zoom in to read the text.
