Trying to find thoughtful and special gifts for friends can be tough. Particularly for those lovely ladies who do not need a thing. Let’s face it, who does need a gift. But I love my friends and wanted to give them something special. So I thought I would share some pretty pictures I had taken during this year.
So I carefully scoured the pictures I had taken this year to find 8 photos to create a note card set.
Some of the flower pictures I took this summer
Some fun pictures
I knew would be pretty. Remember when I photoshopped them with different techniques and asked you to help me choose?
Here is the peony picture
and petunia picture that you all helped me choose?
Printed the pictures at Wal-mart the prints were $.09 each. I needed 30 copies of each picture.
Waited impatiently….. for the photos to arrive.
Purchased 240 note cards from JoAnne’s at 50 percent off. The notecards were $3.99 for 50 note cards, including envelops.
Using a bone folder, I folded all 240 cards.
I had ordered this really cute stamp
to personalize the back of every note card.
I glued the photos onto the notecards, using Xyron glue that would protect the pictures but also keep the photos on the notecards.
Look how pretty the cards turned out.
Tied a pretty ribbon bow around the sets.
Here are five sets ready to deliver to my friends, I have twenty-five sets more to make. Total cost of each note card set $1.80 and I am not giving my lovely friends anything that will fill their house with junk!!!
