It’s back to school soon for us, and this year I’m prepared ahead of time with ready-made notes to toss into my kids’ lunches and brighten their days.
I wanted some little notes with envelopes (everything’s more exciting when it’s in cute packaging, right?) so I found these mini envelopes that were the perfect size. They are business-card size, and the file includes business-card size notes to fit. I was easily able to color and turn shapes from this school supply set into print & cut notes.
Tips: Use your eye dropper tool in the Fill Color Window with a screen shot of the cutting-file image to get custom colors. Also remember to change all the cut lines of the pictures you’ve colored to “no cut” in the standard Cut Settings Window, or choose “cut edge” once you place the pictures into the rectangular note shape.
Now they’re ready for quick little messages. If you don’t send lunches with your kids, these would be fun to tuck into backpacks or planners to be found at some point in the day.
An added bonus of making these notes in business-card size is I was able to also make a convenient little box for all the notes and their envelopes to have at the ready.
For a little fancier note (to have ready not just for kids), I used the floral portion that comes in the cutting file with envelopes. I cut multiples from various colors of adhesive cardstock (these are mint, yellow and pink) and then cut the envelopes in vellum. Aren’t these pretty?
Whether you need back-to-school notes or other little notes to have ready, I hope you take the time to make a collection of cards like this.
