making an impressive teacher's gift

for not alot of cash!!
Here, is a wrapped set of 5 YOUprint notecards. Mine are a variety, but you can certainly just buy one style and do the same thing. I used tulle I had to wrap them which I think is especially festive. You can buy this at your local craft store from a roll so it is the correct width, you just cut it like you would ribbon.
To take it up another notch, you can add a little tag from one of the sets. I punched a tiny hole in the corner, and attached the tag to the tulle with a small safety pin.
Invitation size envelopes are readily available at office supply stores, usually in white. For a colorful variety, check out an online vendor like Paper-Source. I found it was easier to attach the labels directly to each envelope in order to package them up neatly.

In the next day or so, I will show you a very fun, creative way to package up a set of gift tags. Thanks for reading.

YOUprint - Printables- freebie!

Introducing Blue Finch Studio's first YOUprint card. YOUprint is interchangeable with the term "printables". A printable is a PDF file that you print at home on paper, card stock or a sticker sheet to make what YOU want, when YOU want.

Please enjoy this note card free as our personal thank you. Begin by clicking the following link:
free owl note card.
Step 2. Download the file.
Step 3. Open the PDF file and select print. I suggest you print on a heavy card stock for best results.
You will then have a sheet like the one shown above. Using a paper cutter, trim the paper on the lines marked "crop".
Once that is finished, you will have a notecard like this. (in the photo I above, I still needed to trim off the white from the top of the card)
Last, fold the card in half where the fold line is indicated. I use the Pampered Chef scraper shown to make nice, sharp creases on my cards! You now have a fine piece of stationery waiting to be signed, sealed and delivered. This card fits an A2/invitation size envelope which can be found online or at your local office supply store.

Please check back regularly. The Blue Finch Studios etsy shop will be open next week. We are currently designing new YOUprint cards, as well as tags, and labels.

If you like our YOUprint, leave us a comment and inspire us to share another here very soon!
