I looked to my craft closet and found a package of solid card stock 12 inch by 12 inch and some beautiful paper with designs on it. I have to admit, I have had these paper packs for a while and rarely if ever used them. There is nothing like a large number of cards to write piling up to get a person motivated to use up all that paper.
I had some small envelopes that are the size of a half sheet of 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch (standard computer paper) left over from our wedding and I thought this would be a great size for the thank you cards.
Using a ruler, a self healing mat, an Xacto blade, and a glue stick, I created a lot of cards in an assembly line.
From the scraps left over from the larger cards, I was able to create some smaller cards that I can use for gifts. The other bits of paper also allowed me to create some beautiful bookmarks.
