Whisker Graphics July DIY

Just last week I (excitedly) made the announcement that I was a part of the Whisker Graphics Design Team and would be doing a monthly project over on the Whisker Graphics blog.  Today (even more excited) I get to show you my first DIY that got posted earlier in the day.

I decided to start this thing off using one of my latest craft obsessions, airmail bakers twine.  I have gushed about my love affair with it before and in no way is the love lessening.  It is a packaging essential to me, especially when paired with airmail washi tape (yum!) like I did in this project.  

The inspiration behind this was to encourage all of us (me included) to create our own cards and write more hand-written notes to loved ones.  This DIY is proof that you can make something quickly that is still cute and has great design and you definitely don't need to spend a fortune doing it either.  I made this card in about 10 minutes.  I wanted manila colored paper so I actually just cut up an old filing folder (recycling).  I punched a few indents in the paper with a hole punch and wrapped the twine around.  A rubber stamp set was used to customize the card with a message.  And...that's it!  Fill out the back with a quick note and pop in the mail.  Whoever receives it will feel so special.  

Receiving little notes that let you know someone is thinking about you are so important.  I remember there were a few times when my Mom taped a note to the bathroom mirror or wrote something and left it in my lunch box when I was little.  Those are the best!  Thanks Mom!  Do you leave little notes or messages to loved ones?  If not, hopefully this post will encourage you to make a few cards.  I write this as a reminder mostly for myself...I always intend to write more letters but I get distracted and busy and then I don't do it.  I need to change this.

See my full post up on the Whisker Graphics blog.

Happy Thursday!
