monday must haves :: jute + cotton ribbon

26 Aug

You’ve heard the phrase, ‘it’s the thought that counts.’ Take those thoughts and turn them into a gift that counts. Making a simple card with personal touches speaks volumes and it’s easier than getting a card from the store. Yep, it truly is. If you think about it, you have to get ready, drive to the store, possibly spend more than you wanted to, drive back home and make the card out. All that for a card that can cost up to $7.99 these days. I’ll admit it, those Hallmark commercials sometimes make me want to buy a card from them. BUT, then I think about the impact a homemade card can do!

Follow these easy steps to making your own card. What you will need:

Monday Must Haves

  1. Kraft paper
  2. Jute Ribbon
  3. Cotton Ribbon
  4. Raffia
  5. Scissors
  6. Tape or glue
  7. Marker

[STEP 1] — Make it personal.

Monday Must Haves

Fold the paper in half (whichever way you like). Using your marker, write your own message. Keep it short and sweet — you have time and space to write in the inside.

[STEP 2] — Make it simple.

Cut your cotton ribbon first and glue it onto the paper. Use the jute ribbon next and glue it on top of the cotton ribbon.

[STEP 3] — Make it perfect.

A simple raffia bow ‘ties’ the whole card together. Write your message inside and deliver to your recipient.

Making this card takes the same amount of time it would take to head to the store and buy one. Now you have enough jute + cotton ribbon to give your all of your friends and family thanks, and for no extra money.

Happy gifting.

Love, Us.
