I worked really hard on this tutorial and I am really hoping you guys enjoy it. Today, I am showing you how to make handmade stationery sets. I came up with this idea as a gift for a handmade gift exchange that I am participating in. I started with a custom address stamp and went on to create little note cards and a memo pad. I wanted to display this all in a portfolio style case so I created one out of a cereal box.
How to Make Handmade Stationery Sets
Supplies I used:
- Paint Brush
- Cereal Box
- Designer Paper (DCWV Timeless Type)
- Black Paint
- Hard Coat Mod Podge
- Glitter Mod Podge
- Black Elastic
- Small Magnets
- Note Cards (handmade)
- Memo Pad (handmade)
First I created the actual stationery. I took kraft card stock, cut it in fours creating four note cards per sheet. I stamped each with a sentiment. I used ‘hello’ and ‘thank you’ as my sentiments. I made the memo pad by cutting down sheets of lined paper, punching holes at the top and using a spiral binding to secure them together. I added a black piece of card stock to the back of the memo pad.
For the portfolio style stationery case, I cut a cereal box in half. I then glued the pieces together to create a sort of gate fold album. I painted the edges black and covered it with designer papers. I added some magnets for closure and some elastic as a pen holder.
The last step was creating some boxes to hold my note cards. After those were completed, I glued them down and glued the memo pad in. the stationery set was complete!

The videos together are quite lengthy so I broke them into two parts. The first part is all about creating the case from the cereal box and part two goes into attaching the paper, creating the boxes to hold the note cards and using modpodge all over.
