Hey! It’s Kierste, from over at Simply Kierste! I absolutely love this project. I first made a set of notepaper for my mom a few years ago when my oldest was realy young, and have made them regularly ever since. It’s perfect for even the little ones to get involved with, especially for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day (great for dad’s desk!).
This is super easy, and SO fun. Any one would love this gift!
- 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of white paper
- your imagination!
4. You could actually do this step first if you prefer, but it doesn’t really matter. (Unless the artwork at the bottom would be ruined going through the printer–then you would want to do this step first.) I also do it in this order, just in case someone wants to start over. This way I don’t have to keep printing out the words until I know they are ready to go. In Word (or other word processing software), type any text that you would like to be at the top of your notepaper, then print. I chose a different font for each child, and sized it to 16. You don’t want it to be too big, so you have plenty of space for the actual notepaper.
5. Now you’re ready for the printer! I use a local print shop, but I called first to make sure they made notepaper. I had them put four to a page, so 1/4 sheets. (25 copies = 100 pieces of notepaper) When I made stationery, I did 1/2 sheets instead, so they would be a little bigger.
