Flowery Notes

Source: Martha Stewart Living, April 2004


Your personal correspondence will bloom like spring flowers when you make a garden's worth of these note cards. Convert store-bought cards into this pop-up flower stationery, or create your own from lovely patterned papers. Before you send off your spring wishes, adorn each envelope with a matching flower seal.


  • Spray mount

  • Patterned papers

  • Scissors

  • Pencil

  • Glue stick


  1. To make note cards, use spray mount to affix two different patterned papers of the same size back to back; allow to set, then crease paper in half.

  2. Photocopy the flower template, enlarging or shrinking it to a desired size; cut out the shape.

  3. Unfold your homemade card or store-bought card and place the template over the middle of the crease; trace half the flower in pencil on one half of the card, abutting the fold.

  4. On a cutting mat, use a utility knife to cut out the half-flower. For the flower seals, shrink the template, then cut out the shape.

  5. Trace the flower onto paper and cut out; use a glue stick to adhere to envelopes.
