Make It : Yellow Owl Workshop Hug Kiss Stationery

Posted by

Today's Valentine tutorial comes from the talented Christine Schmidt of Yellow Owl Workshop. In addition to her amazing shop, Christine is author of "Print Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques + Truly Original Projects" (we're fans!):

How to Make Hug + Kiss Stationery Set

Tip: "I like to print these out at the local copy shop because I don't want to use up all my pricey inkjet printer toner and they have a variety of color card stock options."

SUPPLIES:
(2) 8.5 x 11" Templates (2 Pages) printed on card stock - download for free here!
Scissors
Craft Knife
Rubber cement

Instructions (once you've printed your clip-art!)

1. Using scissors or craft knife to cut out card (top right on printable) outside purple line + envelope (page 2 of printable).
2. Use craft knife to score along dotted lines of envelope.
3. Turn envelope over so printed design is on back.
4. Fold flap A + flap B over along dotted line and crease.
5. Fold flap C + flap D over along dotted line, crease and unfold.
6. Apply rubber cement to flap A and flap B.
7. Fold flap C over flaps A + B and press firmly until cement sets.
8. Write message on card and place in envelope.
9. Apply rubber cement to flap d and press firmly until cement sets.
10. Rub excess rubber cement away with fingertips.

Bonus: Cut out gift tags above. Punch out gray hole with hole punch and string with ribbon or twine.

Best,
Chris

  • Very charming!

  • This is the first in a few years I've had time to craft for valentines. I love your Designer paper pads. The glitter is my favorite. I love all your tools thank you Martha.

  • So clever...just like everything from Yellow Owl. Am going to try this out!

  • Can't wait to do these for Valentine's Day! I buy her stationery and have attended her workshop. ...am always successful with her projects and I am NOT crafty.

  • These are absolutely adorable and not time consuming to create. I'd say it's a win win situation for the crafter and the receiver! Thanks, Yellow Owl Workshop!

  • I so enjoyed the craft tools segment. I use Marthas' products ans love them all. Really need these to add to my crafting,quilting and sewing,beading projects. Thanks Martha for all you have taught us and teach us.
