Making Homemade Stationery
Like so many other females, we love to write letters. It’s so much more personal than texting or sending an email. The days spent pouring out our thoughts on a beautiful piece of stationery, and maybe even spraying the paper with perfume like they used to in the old movies, seem so long ago. But who doesn’t love getting a handwritten thank-you note from a friend? It really shows how much she cares.
If you long for the days of stationery, here are some ideas to create your own, adding in your own personality:
If you go to your local craft or scrapbooking store, you can find many ideas for your paper. In the stamp isle, you can find your initials or even a picture of something personal. For example, if you are sending a thank-you note after a party, find a stamp that goes with the party theme. Many of these stores have beautiful paper already adorned with different themes, sparkles, etc.
Using stickers can be a cute idea, and they can even work for the younger letter writer. What a fun way to decorate the paper or even the envelope! You can still find wax embossers to close your envelopes with beautiful designs, adding a touch of elegance.
If you want to get even fancier, you can create your own paper. Tye dye paper looks incredible; no two pieces will be the same. There are many tutorials on the Internet, and even on YouTube, to help you create your one-of-a-kind tye dye paper.
Another great idea to personalize your stationery is using Mod Podge. The ideas for this are endless. You can create a photo montage or use different pieces from magazines. You can even color your own pieces and strategically place them. In the end, you will have an incredibly unique piece for writing your letter or wishing your friend well.
You can use all of these ideas to make your invitations as well. Using your theme, you can create your own masterpieces that those you cherish will save for years to come. Use your creativity and have fun! The more thought you put into your creations, the more your loved ones will get out of them.
