Virtual CREATE Day - monogram notecards

Before I go any further, it's MandyE's birthday today!

Happy birthday, Mandy - hope you're having a WONDERFUL day.


Well, where January was the month of the mini-book, February has been the month of cards... and I'm not done yet.

But since it's Mandy's birthday AND she got my little gift, I can finally show you these little monogram notecards I made for her.

I had to get creative and do something very flat since I'm suspicious of the postal service so I did six little notecards, two sets of three.

They can be used as gift tags, for a quick thank-you note or for a random act of kindness when you just want to encourage someone (that's my favourite use for the little notecards).

Here they are - I took the pics at night because NOTHING would get taken if I waited for daylight - so they looked much better in person.

  • I bought a nice thick creamy card
  • cut them smaller (can't remember the dimensions)
  • scored the cards (measured the halfway mark and used a dry gel pen and a ruler to draw a line)
  • folded
  • applied stickers (bought from

Because this cardstock was so thick, I put the whole lot in a big binder clip for a day to get them flat and then I attached some ribbon.

Easy but satisfyingly very pretty.

Please show off your creations in the kitchen, craft room, sewing room, wherever.
