Make these simple notecards with the free SVG file and card stock from CutCardStock.
Sometimes it is really nice to have a simple but elegant notecard on hand for when you need to write a quick note. The SVG file for this notecard can be adapted into a few different styles. The image above shows one with a color insert that can be changed to any color you desire. Or leave the notecard plain like the card on the right. You can stamp to add a sentiment or add additional design elements if you desire.

Use a personal cutting machine that works with an SVG file. I used a Cricut Maker at a setting of 100#. Because the design is 8.5″ x 11″, and the card stock is the same size, you have to pay attention to the alignment on your mat. The file will make two cards from one sheet of card stock.
The close-up image above shows the cutting detail of the SVG file, the color insert, and the beautiful texture of the Royal Sundance card stock. It also shows how well the cardstock cuts the delicate centers of the petals.
Making a set of these notecards would make for a nice gift. As an option, you could insert a different color into each one of the notecards for a rainbow set of cards.
The basic mini folder is made from one sheet of double-sided scrapbooking paper. Using the Best Glue Ever with the No-Clog Writing Cap holds the seams together by applying a small amount of glue, which is needed. From the basic construction, you can embellish the folder as you desire.

for Scrapbooking, Cardmaking, and Crafting
Double-sided paper packs are hard to locate. They are a preferred favorite of mine for paper crafting. I have begun making my own. I know you can glue two pieces of just about anything together, but getting the correct thickness is key for many applications. The secret I have learned that works best is to use wrapping paper.

The materials are simple and the process is easy. Spray the backs of each paper and then put them together before the adhesive has totally dried. Spray adhesive works best. Other kinds of adhesive will add bumps and bulk to the paper.
Making DIY magnets with Yasutomo and the Dollar Tree. @Yasutomoart @DollarTree #sponsored
With Yasutomo Products
I love finding economical craft products and the Dollar Tree is one of those go-to stores for great finds. The moment I saw wooden magnets at the Dollar Tree, I knew they were going to be great for crafting. The shape of the magnets lent itself to be paired well with Origami paper. I applied Yasutomo Origami paper to the tops and coated them with a glossy spray to make these DIY magnets. Making a set of magnets was easy and would make a great handcrafted gift or housewarming present. You can make them fit your personal style and decor by changing the design of the Origami Paper.

Origami paper – Yasutomo
wooden magnets – Dollar Tree
Nori paste – Yasutomo
Gloss coat – Krylon
The process is rather easy and quick. The drying time is the only factor in the length of the project. I worked on these magnets over a few days due to the drying time of the final Krylon gloss coating. The actual crafting was quick and enjoyable.
I am pleased with how the magnets turned out, they exceeded my expectations. I will be using them on our kitchen refrigerator. I have another package of magnets so I know I will be making more. Maybe for the office or my craft room. Let me know how you would use your own DIY Origami Magnets in the comments below.
