{Embellished Stationery}

Hey, y'all!  Recently I shared a fun post on The Hair Bow Company's blog. I showed their readers how to easily embellish plain stationery, and today I want to show y'all the how-to. 
With minimum supplies and a few simple steps, you can have a beautiful card to send a special person.
One: Gather your supplies.  You will need blank notecards, scrapbook paper, washi tape, an ink pad, glue and a flower embellishment.  (I used a shabby flower from The Hair Bow Company.)
Two: Trace the top flap of your notecard on the back of your scrapbook paper.  Cut it out and use a glue stick to adhere it to your notecard.  (I cut my scrapbook paper to only cover the bottom half of the notecard.)
Three: Add washi tape strips to the top of the note card.
Four: Lightly rub an ink pad around the edges and top of the card.
Five: Hot glue a fabric flower to the top of the card as your finishing touch.
With minimum effort, you have a lovely card to send to brighten someone's day.
In the age of email and text messages, there's something really special about finding a beautiful, handwritten note in the mail.

  1. Oh I adore this idea! So pretty and I think I recognize that tape!

  2. I just got a bunch of washi tape from pick your plum. Now I know what to do with it! I am collecting things throughout the year to put together gifts for the women's shelter down the street. I can embellish inexpensive journals, pens, etc with the washi tape. :) I love how cute and easy this is!

  3. I am always super excited when I get "real" mail. Those who get your letter will be super psyched, it's so cute! =)

  4. What a sweet card! I love the use of the washi tape and vintage ink. A homemade card is always a wonderful treat to receive in the mail!

  5. So pretty! I love that pink flower. I papercraft, too!
