Monogram Stationery {DIY Gift}

Monogram Stationery Makes an Awesome Gift!

Hi it’s me Jaime! wanting to share some inspiration with you today ♥

On my quest to find something different for my girls’ teachers this year,

i stumbled across a neat idea … a thank you note kit for kids …

so that writing thank you notes or birthday cards would be simple

and everything would be in reach all bundled in a little box together.

I thought this would make a wonderful teacher gift,

and with the holidays fast approaching, perfect for a friend or neighbor too!

The supplies and process is very simple… I took out my scrapbook paper stash and chose papers and cards that would look pretty together.

I also used a small 3-ring binder (9 x 7.5) ~ kraft paper for the monograms

scalloped circle paper punch ~ cupcake liners

and some pretty pencils i found in the dollar bins at Michaels.

monogram 9 I started by making pockets, to hold all the goodies, out of chipboard

(heavy cardstock works well also) … cutting them so they would fit inside the binder

folding the pocket, punching holes, then sewing up the edges.

The idea is easy with the picture below as reference …

… now cut the scrapbook paper to fit inside the clear sleeves of the binder.

then add some ribbon around the spine of the binder for embellishment.

To make the cards, I chose a pretty font in my word processing program, copy and pasted the letter, making the first one larger for the outside of the binder (see first picture) then punched them out …

I ♥ cupcake wrappers, since they are already pleated, they make a great ruffled paper.

This kit was a birthday gift for a friend, who is a die hard crafter like me!

I included tags and cards in the front pocket, that she could attach to her always lovely handmade gifts .

Don’t forget the pencils ~ tied with some pretty ribbon on the outside and it’s done!

The possibilities are endless with this kind of present … any cards, tags,

or paper goods can go inside.  Maybe a mini calendar & some postage stamps?

happy crafting!

    This is a great idea. Can I make a suggestion? Hire a proofreader. There are a few grammatical errors in your post including your title. It’s stationery, not stationary.
