If you didn’t know already from the blog title, I love paper. I keep lots and lots of paper scraps in a big bucket by my craft desk to re-use. Why let beautiful paper go to waste, am I right? So I came up with a couple new card designs for easy handmade cards.

I used paper scraps from my staff and some card bases and envelopes purchased from Michaels. I also picked up a set of gold stickers from the Dollar Tree making this an EASY and CHEAP DIY paper craft.

Following the heart border punch, I also tried a scallop edge. This one is easy to do with decorative border scissors. I added the gold sticker sentiment on the right side of the card. It’s a very sweet and simple design.

Easy Handmade Blue Greeting Card with Twine

This one is easy peasy! I took my scrap paper and wrapped it with twine three times. I secured the twine in the middle front of the card with a knot. I covered that up with a piece of foam adhesive and a gold sticker sentiment.

Brown and Gold Sequins Handmade Card

This sequin card is also made with a larger piece of scrap paper for the background. I used scrap vellum as a band across the bottom and added the sticker sentiment. I found some gold and brown colored sequins at the dollar tree and glued those on for sparkle.

I stamped each of the inside of the cards with a happy birthday or anniversary greeting. They were all packed up with a bow and sent out as a fun little stationary set of handmade cards. The recipient loved these easy to make cards!
