Howdy all! I made these envelopes and then used the scraps and some stamps to make little note cards. Then I put them in a set with pencils and a handmade bow (that kinda goes with the coloring?) to give as a little gift to my cousins girlfriends. The green set has a kinda weird pencil holder that I didn't end up using... but that's ok.









Thanks for looking! C and C welcome, also  what else do you think I could use to keep them together, I just used paperclips... but I think there's a better way.  Roll Eyes

those are cute! stationary sets are always good gifts. you could cut a matching or coordinating length of ribbon or paper and wrap it around the stack of cards and envelopes. if you do one around horizontally and one vertically, they would stay all together and as an added bonus, they would look all bundled and even cuter Smiley

Those are indeed cute! I've pinned them. I agree with Correlating: tie 'em with a ribbon. Or you could find/make a box. I'm sure there are other ideas out there. They really do look sweet and well done.

I personally thought that the colored paper clips were pretty cute. But if you really want to top off the girly factor, perhaps you could do a few of those hair clips/bobby pins with flowers to keep them together. That way the fastener is also useful. Smiley
