DIY Stationary Gift Basket

I love these darling note cards from Artful Life Designs! Alone or paired with a few fun stationery accessories, they make a sweet gift item. Here's what you'll need to make your own DIY Stationery Basket because we all know how important that thank you card is especially here in the South...

Note Cards
These are oh so cute! You've probably noticed how much I love birds, and these note cards come in four designs each with a different feathered friend. There are also options to personalize your cards with various font and text choices.

What is it about a little twine that ups the cute factor on anything? Note cards and envelopes tied up with string! These are a few of my favorite things! Just having a little fun...

Letter Confetti
Have you ever put confetti inside your letters? It's a great way to add a little pizzazz to your outgoing mail! And it adds a festive touch to our stationary set here...
I used paper punches to punch out pieces from coordinating papers. Tucking the confetti inside a glassine bag allows you to still see the colorful pieces!

Pencils or Pens
Wrap some Washi tape around freshly sharpened pencils and add them to the mix!

Put it All Together
Place everything inside a basket. I reused a berry basket, but any container will do.

To see more details on these cute note cards or to order some for yourself or a friend, visit my friends at Artful Life Designs!

Happy gifting!
