Petal Prints Stationary Set

It's my Grandma's 81st birthday today, so I've made her a stationary set. I like using Petal Prints for this type of project. They lend themselves well to quick cards that still look very nice. To make a stationary folder, you need 12x12 paper. I scored and folded it in half (6 inches). The bottom fold-up is at 3.5 inches. I used the horizontal slot punch along the sides. I fed ribbon through those and that's how it's kept closed. I used glue dots along the sides of the fold-up to keep everything contained. The cards and envelopes are standard size. The stationary paper is 8x5. This whole project, including all cutting took less than an hour, so if you're in a pinch for last minute gifts, this one goes really fast.


  1. How did Grandma like her set?


  2. I love this idea! This would make a great class project or gift. I love your work.....TFS!

  3. What amazing creations. You continue to inspire! Thank you,

  4. I do something similar and call them pocket books, because they are pockets filled with stuff.

    I use A3 pieces to make the outside cover. Then I fill them up with cards, notelets, calendar, post-it holder etc...
