Create a personalised Note Card Set, incl. Envelopes and hand sewn Pocket Folder

Language: English
All Levels

Course description

In this class you will be learning how to make a beautiful note card set, including personalised cards, envelopes and a cute hand sewn paper pocket folder.

I am going to show you how to cut and personalise your note cards from simple card stock, create envelopes from maps, gift warp paper, book or magazine pages and make a super cute pocket folder, which is hand sewn and tied with a pretty ribbon. If you want to go the extra mile, you can even add a little paper embroidered motif.

I really want to get into a habit of writing more cards and letters this year. Do you want to join me in  sending more "happy mail" to friends and family?

Are you looking for a last minute hand made gift for someone special? Then why not join me in this fun and easy to follow project.

Looking forward to seeing you in my class.


Check out the Class Notes for the templates and list of tools and materials.  As I live in the UK, I'm using  A4 paper, so you might need to adjust your cards if you are using letter sized paper. Oh, and I'm afraid I work in cm not inches, so you might need to ask Dr Google for converting the measurements.

Hi, my name is Nina Vangerow and I'm an artist and teacher and live in a small town in rural Wales, UK with my teenage son and out little terrier Mimi. Under the name of The Forgotten Bookshop Girl I'm working as a mixed media artist, rebind old books turning them into notebooks, create vintage style Travelers Notebook inserts, work with various forms of image transfers and love working with materials that would normally have ended up in the landfill or is just looking for a new lease of life. I have always loved anything vintage (I've got an MA in Ancient History) and am more of an analogue person, though I do love the internet and how it opens up the world to us. Most of my work has definitely a vintage feel or twist, and I'm also very much influenced by the Dada movement, well, the 20's are probably my favourite era.
