Note cards for a friend

Hello Friends! Today I'm sharing some note cards and as easy as it gets holder for them. Way back when, when I had to take Hunter to the ER, my friend and neighbor watched the twins for me. I was so appreciative and I had been meaning to do some sort of thank you for her and finally got around to it. I decided to make some small note cards for her to send to school when in need. You know how it is, normally I just grab some sort of scratch piece of paper and scribble down whatever I need the teacher to know or that somebody else will be picking Hunter up etc. Since my friend also has school children, I know that she would appreciate being able to send notes with pretty cards.

The nice thing about this little gift is that I didn't have to worry about envelopes so I could make whatever size cards I wanted to. I settle for 4x4 because they are small, but not too small. Plenty of room for short or longer notes. I also wanted a case for them, but nothing extravagant. I ended just

using a piece of cardstock that measured 4 1/4" wide and 8 1/2" long. I then scored the center so there is a flat spot that is only about 1" wide. Then I just put the two top edges together, punched holes and tied my ribbon. The case is tight enough that the note cards don't even budge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
