My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Quick and Easy Gift!



Here are the instructions for the Notecards from an earlier post. Thanks to Shelia from "She's a Sassy Lady" for sending me a set of these little beauties. And another thanks to Kristy at "Craftin On My Door" for the original instructions.
 
Supplies needed:
**1 piece 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock---scored horizontally at 5 1/2 inches, scored vertically at 2 1/2 inches, and holes punched on either side of the card stock at 1/2 inch and 4 1/2 inchs  from the bottom edge on both sides.
 **1 piece of 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock---cut into 4 equal pieces
**4 pieces contrasting paper suitable for writing cut at 3 7/8 inches x 5 inches
**Patterned/contrasting cardstock
**scissors
**ruler
**bone folder
**paper trimmer
**hole punch
**24 inch ribbon
**assorted embellishments
**adhesives
**4 A2 envelopes
Score marks are shown in pencil.
Fold the bottom section up, match the holes and thread the ribbon through all layers to the outside of the holder.
 To hold the ribbon in place, secure it at the fold.  I use Tacky Tape to hold the ribbon.
 
To decorate the front of the folder, I cut a strip of patterned paper to fit, added a border, a flower, and a stick pin.  The letter is cut from a Cuttlebug die.
 
The notecards are created by adhering the contrasting paper to the cardstock and adding a decorative border at the top.  The letter is from a Cuttlebug die. The envelopes are A2 envelopes with a stamped and colored image on the front.  The envelope seals are made from the negative Cuttlebug cut glued to a scalloped circle.  The seal was run through a Xyron machine to form a sticker.
