When I think of this season of Autumn, I think of learning, and that leads to "what new thing can I teach myself today?" and that finds me in my studio with some paper stock and a pattern and voila.
So here is the pattern I found in one of my many scrapbooks of things to learn someday. Turns out this just struck my fancy and I thought I would show you how to make these lovely gift cards. I have been sending note cards monthly to those I have not seen for awhile. You may be be inspired as I was.
What you will need for this project is simple-- some Shellysbuttonsandmore buttons, I chose quite a variety. Some 6 x6 sheets of paper or cardstock, and a spoon or bone, to help crease your paper or cardstock. ( or you can just use your fingers too)
I chose cardstock as I wanted them to be more rigid, they sit up like a frame, so nice to add some pop card reminders to let those close to you, that you are thinking of them.
Card stock can be found at Michaels or Amazon. Look for Scrapbook paper 6 x6 is a perfect size.
These are some of my choices.
( many to chose from)
