Paper Flower Note Cards
These paper flower note cards are a bright, cheerful and kind way to greet someone when they arrive in the mailbox. It is always a great time to create a handwritten note and send it to someone who you want to touch, maybe today more than ever. This little project is a fabulous way to use the scraps you have in your craft supply and the awesome little tape runner. This post is sponsored by Therm-O-Web but the ideas and opinions are my own.
Materials Needed to Make Paper Flower Cards
The following supplies and materials are what is needed to make these super cute cards.
- Therm-0-web Permanent Tape Runner
- Scrapbook Paper Scraps in a Variety of Patterns and Colors
- Square Note Cards Cut Down to 3×3 Inches
- Square Envelopes
Directions to Make Paper Flower Note Cards
These are so simple and fun to make. I love that they can be made from scraps of paper. While they are adorable with all of the pretty patterns and textures in scrapbook paper mixes, the cards are also fun to make with cereal boxes and magazine. Keep reading, I will share one made that way too.
Start by cutting petals. Measure them as you go ensuring that they will fit INSIDE the envelope. They can be different widths so a pattern is not necessary. However, if you are particular in your crafting, you can make one then use it as a pattern for the other petals. Not all crafters work the same.
Use your Therm-O-Web tape runner to put four or five strips of adhesive on the square note card.
Place the square note card in the center of the envelope then stick the petals on it to create a circle. Use the envelope as a guide so the completed flower will still fit inside.
Cut a circle from a piece of the scrapbook paper stash and use the Therm-O-Web Tape Runner to adhere it to the center of the flower.
That’s it! Aren’t they so crazy fun. I love that the Therm-O-Web Tape Runner has a cover for the adhesive opening. The best part about this is that it STAYS attached while crafting so doesn’t get misplaced or lost.
Paper Flower From Recycled Items
If you find yourself at home without fancy papers, don’t fret. You can craft with recycled items like cereal boxes and magazine.
So now, get your supplies and get going. It’s time for you to make some paper flower notes and decorations! If you need a pattern, you can cut a petal from this flower printable. Of course you can download the printable FREE and color it too. Maybe even print a copy and put it IN the note you send for someone else to color.
Ten Reasons to Craft
I am going to say this again. Crafting is just a great idea. It is proven that crafting can be really good for mental and emotional health. Studies show that making and crafting can lower anxiety. Another benefit to crafting is that it creates connection. When we make things and give them to others, we spread kindness and love. Here are my top ten reasons to craft with kids, and I mean kids of all ages.
- Mental Health Benefits – Crafting puts me in a good mood.
- Self Expression – Crafting allows me to express myself.
- Education and Growth – I learn new skills by making things.
- Connection – Crafting connects me others through workshops, classes and gifting.
- Decor – Through making and crafting, I can totally customize every aspect of my decor.
- Gift Giving – Gifts is totally my love language. I love to make handmade gifts.
- Offline Time – Crafting keeps me off of my phone and social media. We all know this can be beneficial.
- Income – Because I craft and sell items that I make, I have an additional income source.
- Fun – I like to have fun and to me, making things is fun.
- Socializing – Attending events where crafting is a part gets me out and around others with like minds.
