Quarter Cut Notes

Several years ago when I was making and selling handmade cards and notes at craft fairs, one of the things I made lots of are what I call Quarter Cut Notes. These single sheet note cards are literally 1/4 of a 8.25″ x 11″ sheet of card stock. I’d simply cut, decorate, and tie together in sets of 8 or 12 along with envelopes. Here are some Quarter Cut Notes that I made just to show you:

All of the stamped images come from the “Every Little Bit” stamp set (item # 120558) and this set has a total of 28 different images that are perfectly sized to use on Quarter Cut Notes. This particular set is one that I have as a clear mount stamp set…I should tell you what I love about this type of stamp…stay tuned for that another day!

Because the “Every Little Bit” set consists of images that are outlined, I used some of my Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the images. I think the bus  note would be fun for sending to a teacher or a special message in a child’s lunchbox. And, when I stamped the bird cage, I thought it was perfect for a little handwritten sentiment…

You will notice of course that my sentiment matches perfectly with the color of the ink for the image…this coordination is part of what I love most about Stampin’ Up! products. The color in this case is Night of Navy (Classic Stampin’ Pad item # 102977 / Stampin’ Write Marker item # 100069).

Quarter Cut Notes make a perfect little gift…I’ve given away many of these over the years! And there are so many possibilities…

  • With a single letter stamped on, they are fabulous monogrammed notes.
  • With a fun little animal stamp, they are great for thank you notes from a kid’s birthday party.
  • Use heat embossing, glitter, or a decorative button to jazz up the notes…or you could even round the corners to achieve a slightly different look.

Again, so many possibilities!  Next time you need a little gift, consider making a set!

Until next time,

Kerry
