IMPROVISED Fall Note Card Set

Folder that holds the cards with crimped belly band.
The notecards.....simple!
The inside pockets.

I saw the instructions for this note card set on another blog. I had to change mine a little bit, as the note cards used were from SU, and I didn't have those. Do you have a room FULL of stampin "stuff", but still seem to lack what you need, like me? I find that so frustrating, and you can improvise, but sometimes, it just causes problems like it did for me. Everything was fine, but my envelopes were a little larger then the card, hence, they would not fit in the pocket of the card folder. I had to improvise again, tied a ribbon around them and they just "sit" inside the folder...works fine, but I think with my next SU order, those notecards are going to be on it!

Anyhow, I tried to keep it simple and just used a few items to tie them all together. The set calls for a sheet of 4 postage stamps, guess what, I didn't have any stamps either!! So, again, I improvised with some stickers to seal the envelopes with, I had a box of round, blank stickers I thought I would use, but, the stickim' wasn't any good, they went in the trash, and guess what? Yep, you guessed it, I improvised again! This time I just used a part of address labels.....all in all I think they turned out kind of cute. Oh, did I mention that I used my Xyron adhesive machine to cover one of the cover fronts, and managed to put the adhesive on the right side (or should I call it the wrong side of the paper).....time to quit and do something else!
If you would like the instructions, just leave me a comment and I can post the blog I found it on!
