  • How to: Budget Hello Kitty Stationery

    These are really simple, cheap and make a great gift! You can technically make these cards with any theme you want. I think a cute couples idea would be a picture of the couple.

    Materials needed:
    White 8×11 cardstock
    Cardstock cut into 1.5-2 inch strips down the length. a 8.5×11 sheet will make around 5 cards… more for the 12×12
    Contrasting blank cards (or more contrasting cardstock folded in half)
    Double sided tape
    A printer


    1. Find a picture you like to use and print it out at about 2-3 inches in size. Print this on the white cardstock. Cut out your shape. This will be your “buckle”

    2. Stick the buckle onto one end of the strip using double sided tape.

    3. Wrap the strip around the card, positioning the buckle wherever you’d like it. Once you’re satisfied with placement, crease the strip sharply around the shape of the card.

    4. Stick a piece of double sided tape behind the buckle part and make a loop.

    5. Fill the card with whatever you want and give it away! :)
