Springtime Notecard

Wrapping paper
Have you ever made a note card using wrapping paper?

I haven't, but when I saw this beautiful wrapping paper at Walmart a few days ago, I decided to use it as a scrapbook paper substitute!

This is what I ended up with.

You will need:
- 10" x 7" piece of cardstock, folded in half for the card
- 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of scrapbook paper for card cover
- 4 1/2 x 2" piece of wrapping paper or scrapbook paper

These next pieces will make up the middle of the notecard:
- 5" x 3" piece of wrapping paper or scrapbook paper
- 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of scrapbook paper

Glue scrapbook paper cover onto front of notecard and then the strip of wrapping paper.

Glue on the remaining pieces, wrapping paper first.

Now you can add stickers, or you could print a saying onto the scrapbook paper before cutting it out.

All ready to send to a friend!

really nice idea. When i was younger(a heck of a lot)we would recycle Christmas cards into gift cards.Mom would use the card from the year brfore.and cut up the front of the card to be used as gift tags.

This is one of the prettiest ones you've shown. The wrapping paper is beautiful. Some calendar pages might work for this also.
