A cute way to say hello!
From my latest wave of crafting fever :) I got these papers from a personal swap. I was initially going to use them to wrap soaps but I just got a roll of black and gold paper from someone else today--so I figured to use the beautiful swapped papers to make some stationery!

This tutorial is for 4x6 inch postcards, but you can do the same thing for larger sizes!

  • How to make a notecard letter. Scrapbook Paper Post Cards - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start by cutting your scrapbook paper down to size. I had 12x8" scrapbook paper that I cut into 3 4x6 post cards and kept the scraps to make small notepads. I could have cut it more economically but it's too late now!

    To get the most out of one sheet, buy 12x12 inch sheets of paper and cut them into 6 post cards. I used a paper guillotine to cut all of my cards, but scissors will work too if you have a steady hand.

    Step 2

    Get out your ruler!
    Measure over 3 1/2 inches on the longest side. Mark the other side at the same point and draw a straight line connecting the two.

    Add in the address lines. I start my bottom line 1 ruler's width from the bottom of the post card.

    Step 4

    Use a ruler to measure your additional lines. Make sure to space them evenly! I made my lines 3/8 inch apart.

    After this, you're ready to write on them and mail them out! Don't forget to stick a stamp in the top right corner, though!

  • Step 5

    **OPTIONAL**
    Add in return address lines. You may need to move your divider line over to make enough room. Space your return address lines closer together than you did for the mailto lines.

    You could also add a small box at the top right corner to remind you or the sender to put a stamp on it!

  • Step 6

    **OPTIONAL**
    Embellish the blank side of your post cards with rubber stamps, word art, or drawings.
