Stationery 1I don't know about you, but I'm forever looking for cute stationery! I love giving handmade cards with all my gifts. Here's a quick and simple craft project for creating your own stationery! The best part is, you can create a whole year's supply in one day while using up scraps. Enjoy....

Stationery 2You'll need: A plain white card set, a colored envelope set, coffee and scrap fabric. First, brew a pot of coffee (or black tea) and soak your cards in it. Then let them sit out to dry completely. The coffee will give your note cards a pretty aged look! 

Stationery 3Next, just cut out rectangles of pretty fabric and stitch them into your card with your home sewing machine. If you don't own a sewing machine you can use a few hand stitches with a needle and embroidery thread!  

Stationery 4Stationery 5One last tip- If you enjoy this project, make a second set as a gift for a friend! We packaged them in this super cute wooden basket (from Hobby Lobby) with some pretty stripe fabric! These make a perfect house warming gift!

Have a great day! xoxo. elsie
