We are having such a lovely, leisurely start to the day here. School is closed. Mother Nature has graced us with something we don’t see too often in these parts.
Yes…it’s just a tiny little bit of snow. Just a thin white blanket. Enough to be pretty and enough to play with, and enough to mess up the roads for the school buses leaving their lots at 4 am. Our little Southern state has only bags of salt to arm ourselves with against foul weather, not the equipment and plows of our Northern neighbors. And so we cancel school at the first tiny flake. And then we sit home and stare out the windows.
Fortunately I was able to make it out yesterday to stock up on bread.
I’ve been working on my thank you cards lately. Seems I always need so many of those right after the holidays. This year, I really wanted to do something unique and special with my thank you notes to show my friends and family how much I appreciate everything they do for me. With just a few of my favorite Sizzix dies, and a fun matchbook-fold technique, I came up with some really cute little note cards that I’m excited to share with you all!
Aren’t they fun? I love the simple matchbook style fold to these, and love that they fold flat enough for mailing and stay closed until you open them without need of adhesive to hold them shut. Better yet, they are a bit different than your regular note card, and look kinda fancy, but are actually very easy to create.
Here’s my stack of note cards all closed up. But unfold the front flap, and you have a perfect little spot for notes and greetings.
I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial for creating these cards up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to learn more.
