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.
