DIY Argyle Stationary

D I Y  A R G Y L E  S T A T I O N A R Y

I was recently asked to make a card that my whole family could sign for my aunt’s retirement party. I bounced a few ideas around before concluding that one card signed by a group is a cop out – especially for such a landmark occasion. I figured my aunt would be much happier to receive a stack of nice notes from each of us and from there, I came up with the idea to DIY stationary. This is one of the easier projects I’ve done. If you want to give it a try (it would make a really cute gift, blank), you’ll need:

  • Glue
  • A ruler
  • White paper (for stationary)
  • Metallic pens (I used Sharpies)
  • Magazine scraps

Start by ripping out some magazine scraps. I made sure my scraps came from the same pattern, but that’s not necessary. Then, use your ruler to carefully draw squares on the opposite side of the print you want to use. Mine were 1.5-2 inches.

Cut the squares carefully and glue them onto your white paper. Again, use the ruler to make sure the squares are aligned with one another. Then, mark the center of each square and use the ruler to draw dotted letter X’s through them. The line should be double the length of one side of the square.

And there you have it! An affordable, simple DIY.

Tie them with a neutral ribbon for a nice finishing touch.
