My amazing sister-in-law celebrated a birthday yesterday. But what to get a girl who has everything? …And whose love language is GIFTS??
Something handmade with love, methinks.
Start with a multicolored pack of stationery from Michael’s. This one’s thick cardstock and has a lovely furniture finish.
Chose several different colors and widths of ric-rac and cut them to the width of the front of the notecards. Heat seal the ends (I ran a lighter over the ends for a second each).
Then sew them onto the cover of each folded note (unfold it before you start sewing!) using a basic straight stitch.
[TIP: No sewing machine? Try tacky glue instead! Similar look without the needle and thread!]
The result is a happy, whimsical, one-of-a-kind cutom-made stationery set. [My SIL’s a big Lilly Pulitzer fan, so I hope these colors hit the mark!]
Tie the notecards and envelopes together parcel style with a fabric ribbon (wrap front to back, criss-cross, wrap back to the front, and knot).
I love a pretty and simple little gift! [And I hope she does too!]
