Update: a new blog post with a video tutorial for making a handmade card set. Please click here to find the new blog post.
I love Amy Butler fabrics and have indulged in a few of her delicious notebooks too. In addition, I bought this stationary set a while back – I was drawn to it’s bold mix of patterns and absolutely adorable matching envelopes.
However, as much as I liked it, I found I didn’t use the set; always turning to my own handmade items. So I decided to re purpose the stationary into sets of cards.
Using the paper patterns provided with the set, I made four simple cards, each with a different greeting.
Then I made a folder to keep the cards with their cute matching envelopes.
From the one stationary set I was able to make four sets each containing four cards. I will be tucking these away as handy end of term gifts for teachers or parent helpers.
You can see a tutorial on how to make a similar card set here :)

I To make “new” cards from bad purchases, sort of recycling. I really like the challenge. Stationary note cards are also a good buy if you like the designs and they have matching envelopes. Thank you for mor inspiration.
