Serendipity Stationery Set by Tessa Buys


Hello! Tessa Buys here today with a stationery set designed to send friends some warm and colorful greetings.

I started by creating three cards using the Serendipity line by American Crafts and SRM's Pastel Borders stickers. I used the same template for each card to save time, but alternated the patterned papers for variety. The green "hello beautiful" border sticker made the perfect sentiment.

Next, I filled an SRM glassine bag with color-coordinated sequins. Before I seal a card in an envelope, I like to add the sequins like confetti. I also included three self-adhesive envelope seals punched from left over patterned paper.

Last, I cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the back of an A7 clear card box, mostly just to look pretty and serve as a solid background to the stationery when packaged. I added a pen that I purchased from the dollar bin at Target and now I have a sunny and colorful gift to give to a friend who likes to send happy mail.

I see many more stationery and card sets in my crafty future. SRM's clear card boxes are just the thing to package handmade notes in a special way. Enjoy your day!
