Stash busting thank you notelets

August 20, 2014

Following my rather extensive birthday celebrations (well why not drag it out at my age!) I have enjoyed rummaging through my paper craft hoard. The aim to make some stash busting thank you notelets:).

Thank you notelet


A little bit of playing around created a quick and simple collage thank you notelet.

To create your own you will need two types of paper. I used a leaf printed handmade paper, and silver chinese temple paper. It’s nearly twelve years since I have been to China – definitely time to use some of my stock!

Rip into square shapes, one slightly bigger than the other.

Stamp text onto the card.

Quick, simple and effective (just don’t tell the people who received them just how quick and easy!). I really enjoyed working with paper as a change – I may just be doing some more rummaging:)

As usual I am hopping by Handmade Harbour to see what everyone else’s week has been like,
