diy printed stationery

A creative bomb went off in my house this morning!  I’ve been wanting to make some hand printed stationery.  So this morning I got out my block printing inks, some foam trays (that meat gets packaged with),  my exacto knife and my print making brayers.  I wanted my stationery to be all-purpose, so I just created a pattern of triangles, and cut them out of the foam tray.  The tray was a little larger than my blank note cards.

I also wanted a little reverse triangle design for the envelope.  So, I glued some of the cut-out triangles onto a small square piece of foam tray.

And then I went crazy and started printing them in bright spring colors.

  1. So cool! I need to take time for a creative project, instead of just reading about what other people are doing :-) Once we get past graduation I hope I can get back to some more “create just for fun” time!
