Quick note card set

Here is a fun and quick idea for a note card set. I made this for my Hostesses in Aug. It is made with a half page sheet protector (shortened a little) & Kaleidoscope Brights Soar with it Collection. I slipped a piece of green Matchmakers paper inside the open side of the page protector. Then glued a flap of printed paper to it on the back side. The white bitty flowers is sponged with two different colors of ink to match. The elastic around it is dyed to match the flowers with Orangerie Palette Ink, it keeps it all tightly closed. I put green ribbon under the flowers for leaves. And here is a trick I learned from an angel friend, Jewels, I put an eyelet through the flower to hold it in place and then add a drop of Stickles inside the eyelet to make it look like a jewel.

For the note cards I cut two 3/4 x 6" strips of matching card stock and glued them on the card front at the top folded edge crossing each other. Then I cut off the ends to match the edges of the card. Added a matching flower and put her name at the bottom with TAC's Level D Hostess set, Scripty Bet. I love this set! I have a few other cards on my blog using this same idea too. These are quick and easy and make a great gift. I hope you try it! After my gathering I will show you another version of this too! Blessings

What a cute idea. I think I will make this for my team members who come to the Texas Angel Gathering. Thanks for the idea, Rita.
