Day 3 of 25 Handmade Gifts to Give

Today's gift would be perfect for your child's teacher, your hairdresser, a friend and even a grandparent.

Today's idea is a set of greeting cards. I LOVE making card sets. My favorite is mixed messages. How many times have you needed a card and had to run to the store at the last minute? How many times have you looked through all the cards and cringed when you saw the price? Handmade cards are the best. 1. You have them on hand. 2. You get to write your own message. 3. Who wouldn't love to receive a card out of the blue in the mail that simply said "Thinking of You"? Think about that, in amongst all the annoying junk and bills there sits a beautiful handmade card that you wrote your own message to the recipient. The art of snail mail is slowly dying and I would LOVE to see it come back. Yes I know postage is going up, but think about it for a few minutes of your time and 44 cents or whatever it goes up to you can brighten someones day. Now isn't that worth the price of a stamp(and the price of the handmade cards).

Just a few samples:

I also love making those that incorporate the gift for birthday cards!! These can also come in a set, you provide the gift though of course!

I'm working to get sets on etsy, however if you are interested in purchasing a set shoot me an email and we can get it worked out. Envelopes are included with your order. I am also working on making boxes for them to go in as a gift wrap and storage in one!!
