I love the use of simple envelopes lined with pretty paper for last minute card ideas. To make your own – lay out your envelope (flap up) and trace, 1/4 inch in along all sides. Cut the pretty paper to size and use a glue stick to adhere it. A few simple steps will gussy up any envelope for invites, birthday cards or sweet a Mother’s Day note this spring.
While I cut and paste here are a few other simple ideas for your weekend:
Pipes for candle holders
A swing set over the ocean
Paint by number decorating (yes please!)
Rose tea cheesecake
Parenting a herd
Festive party tights
I’d like to make this dinning table
