Japanese inspired notelets


I've posted some similar designs previously but I'm really pleased with these ones (though the angling has come out strange in the photos) They're made from card from old publications and pages torn from a Japanese poetry journal. The butterflies are from used notelets and the rhododendron photo is from a magazine.

Pretty and charming. Such simple and easy efforts to make something that will give another so much pleasure when they receive a handwritten note from you.

This is so gorgeous. I am going to try it myself, although I have very little crafty ability. You have inspired me to give it a go!

What a beautiful creative way to recycle. Thank you for this idea...it will work for many different things...such as recipes or encouraging thoughts.

I would very much like to link to your blog with your permission. The next time you visit my blog would you please let me know if it is alright?

Very nice!

Do you write old-fashioned letters and cards? I've slipped into using them mainly for my Internet-avoiding relatives.
