Growing in Unity Day Two

Good morning! I love snow. Our street is coated with it right now. I am sure I will be sick of it in a couple of months, but for now, I love how clean and beautiful the world looks under a blanket of snow!

On that note . . . here is my Unity project for day two...


Today's project is seriously the easiest thing EVER! I would guess from start to finish this gift took me less than five minutes!! And it is lovely! You start with pre-made notecards. Mine are Fabriano that I have had in my stash for years. These things are thick, watercolor paper, that make the notes look and feel SO rich!!! I love it! But even plain notecards will work just fine! One color of ink, two stamps, and a bit of glitter! The stamp is the snowflake is from September's kit of the month. The sentiment is from Jolly Winter. I did four cards and tied them up with a pretty bow for a fun presentation! WOW!! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!!!


If you mass produce these, you could have multiple gifts to give away to folks like your kids' teachers, your hairdresser, or even your favorite checkout lady at the grocery store!!! Keep a stash by the front door, and send all of your holiday visitors home with a pack as a little gift!!

I hope you enjoyed today's project. Come back for more tomorrow!
