Recycled Notecards

We are so excited today, to let you know about our new web address. With the help of a clever husband we were able to change our address to (our old address will automatically redirect you).

Now for our note cards...

We made these pretty note card out our of our kids' art work. When are kids start creating there is quickly a giant stack of projects that we are never quite sure what to do with. You can only save and display so much. We hate to just throw them away- not good for the earth or our children's feelings. So we thought we would share the pictures and make them into note cards.

First we gathered some our favorite drawings and paintings.

And some note card envelopes (you can buy packages of them)

Next we folded and cut our cards so they were just a little smaller than our envelopes. The older kids signed the back of the cards (as any artist would do!) In just a few minutes we had a set of note cards. We bundled them together for a gift for grandma. We know she is going to love showing off her grand kids, art work.

Pin It!
