Sewn Note Cards

I have so much to catch up on with this blog. I have been working on tons of projects and cooking up new recipes in the kitchen. It was a very busy summer with everything that took place in our home. Now I am hopefully ready to get some posts up and running.

This craft is from way back in June. I had the privilege of attending girls camp with the girls in my church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints). I am in charge of helping the girls get to camp but was also invited to help out while camping. It was a 6 day camp and was very fun, but very tiring. Up at the camp the girls have mailboxes where they can receive little notes/mail from their friends or family members or from fellow campers and leaders. Before camp we had our Relief Society write letters to each of the girls for each day. So the girls got 5 letters (since the 6th day was just clean-up) each. I used THIS tutorial for hand-sewn note cards. It was so much fun to have a simple, yet handmade, card to give the girls each day. I want to make a hundred more of these now that I know how.

I actually did make 100 of these and it probably took about 2 hours from start to finish. They are so easy, but beautiful. And the best part about them is that I used lots of paper scraps.

I think I will make them again for next years girls camp (with a different shape on the front).
