Cards are always handy as there are so many occasions when we can give a card – but I love being able to give home made presents too! This collection of notelets and stationery is made from the images on the Tom Mielko project book CD.
The good thing about Tom’s art is that it’s suitable for men, women and children so it makes a very versatile gift for someone too.
The notelets are just small cards with the topper printed on glossy photo paper. The envelopes are all lined with some backing paper which really isn’t hard (just cut a rectangle the same width as the envelope and then draw round the tip of the envelope and trim) but it makes a huge difference. You can always make an envelope template by using a bought envelope, gently pulling it to pieces and then trace around it.
The folder is a fairly straightforward one – a scoring board is really handy for this. Decide what size folder you want to make and then do a couple of parallel scores down the middle – in this case they are about an inch apart.
The notelets and goodies are all held in by strips of velvet ribbon in this example, but you could use any narrow but sturdy ribbon or small strips of card if you prefer. The quickest way to create notepads is to buy plain little white pads or cheapie pads of some description and just alter the covers. Time to have a browse around the pound shop perhaps!
