Hey there! Thanks for joining me on my 2nd guest post!
Today I’m sharing a super simple project that would be a great gift for someone crafty – or maybe a younger person who is starting to write their own thank you notes. The idea of these notecards is that the recipient of this set would color in their own flowers – and you can include your own washi tape-wrapped colored pencils too. I pulled out lots of Hero Arts flower sets that have detailed, open flowers (complete list below).
Here is a tip for these floral strips – to keep them looking genuinely random I stamped a sheet of white cardstock all over with the flowers and then cut strips measuring 5 1/2″ wide x 1 3/4″ tall. I used masking to create some depth to the design as well. To save on cardstock I only used tiny strips of grey to give the appearance of a mat without using a ton of paper.
I used lots of fun Washi Tape to wrap the colored pencils and cut out the bows using my Silhouette. If you don’t have a Silhouette, Simon Says Stamp has a nice 3D bow die cut!
