  1. I began by cutting the note cards to size - mine are 6.25” x 4.5”. I then stamped my chosen stamp onto the edge of the note card. I chose to stamp this design half on/half off the note card, but this is where you can use your own creative instincts and stamp your designs where you think best.

  1. Instead of using an ink pad, I used the embossing pad, which leaves a faint impression of the design on the cardstock. Shake the embossing powder over the design, remove the excess and heat with a heat gun. The design will ‘magically’ transform into a beautiful, embossed image. Consider experimenting with different powders and colors for a variety of wonderful effects.

  1. I rounded off the bottom corners of my note cards using my Fiskars Corner Squeeze Punch. I think that rounding off the corners gives these cards into a truly professional finish.

  1. Next, I added handmade labels to my box set, which I cut using the Fuse Creativity System® tag design set. The Fuse allows you to cut up to 10 sheets of cardstock in one pass through the machine, which makes quick work of creating a bundle of labels to add to the stationery set.

  1. I embellished the tags with embossing powder the same way I created the note cards. I varied the sentiments so that the recipient has a pretty selection of different labels to choose from.

  1. To complete the labels, I used my Circle Pop Up Punch to cut out a small circle of contrasting cardstock. After adhering it to the end of the label, I punched through all layers with my punch and threaded through some twine.

  1. To finish, I added some handmade flower embellishments, that not only make the finished stationery set look beautiful, but can also be used to decorate future packages and gifts. This stationery set really is the gift that keeps on giving!

Box shown with stationery in first and last photos, but no details given for this. Is it hand made or decorated? If purchased as is, where?

Hi JMitchell! The box is not a part of the tutorial. You can find the plain white boxes at your local craft store, and decorate with homemade banners or floral embellishments! We hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreePaperCrafts
