Gift Ideas

I love creating personalized gifts for those dearest to me.  With the use of fonts and great supplies, you can create a personalized gift that is truly special.

First, find a font you love.  FontFace, DaFont and 1001 Free Fonts have a wide array of options.
Using a design program, or even Microsoft Word, create a text box the size of the note card you want to create.  I suggest you refer to Paper Source for pairing envelope and card sizes.  Enter your text.
Print onto your favorite paper.  Shown above is kraft card stock or my favorite, luxe heavy weight text from Paper Source.  
Using a paper cutter, cut just inside the lines from the text box you created and pair with your favorite color envelopes.
As shown above, I tucked each note card into it’s envelope, wrapped them with ribbon and nestled them in heavy boxes {also available at Paper Source}.  I hope they enjoy using them as much as I enjoyed creating them!

  4. Nice blog! Sometimes, we’ve got to get creative with our Christmas gift ideas. And honestly, when you start to think about getting someone a gift for $10, it actually becomes quite fun. It’s a challenge that forces you to think about what the other person really likes.
