Creative Giving Challenge: Note Cards

Have you ever opened Pinterest, blinked, then realized thirty minutes had passed? Woosh! That was your life going by while you were browsing. I have challenged myself to use the ideas I save on my boards. In the Creative Giving Challenge, you can join me. On the 25th, I’ll post my completed project with the DIY details and invite you to link up. What will we create this month?

Ok, so it is not the 25th, but better late than never, right? This month I thought about making a menu board, a collage of places we have lived, or even a mason jar soap dispenser. I also wanted to try to create something that did not require purchases. In the end, frugality and a busy schedule prevailed.

I made a few cards and I plan to complete them to give as sets. There will be Thinking Of You, Thank You, and Birthday cards in each set. These will make great Christmas gifts, but they could be used for Mother’s Day or a Random Act of Kindness.

I used paper, stamps and trimmers that I had on hand. I looked to Pinterest for inspiration as well. These two cards took me less than ten minutes, so I plan to spend a few hours making a couple of complete card sets tonight then another gift will be complete for Christmas 2012. (Note, it is dreary in the Pacific Northwest in February, so forgive the lighting in the photos.)

Now it’s your turn! Have you created something this year that would make a great gift? Grab the Creative Giving Challenge Button from the sidebar and linkup. Let’s inspire each other this year.
