I found a matching card set and notebook at the one dollar store, and thought I would try and alter them. I saw someone else do this on her blog and thought it was a really good idea. I would give credit for the idea, but I can't remember who it is.
The first picture shows how one of the cards and the notepad looked before I altered them.
On both projects, for the ribbon I layered a light blue ribbon I had over a soft suede ribbon.
On the card I added three cardstock buttons that I made using 2stampis2b's tutorial. You can find it on youtube.
Besides adding ribbon to both the card and notepad I used a regular sized hole punch to punch out soft suede circles, which I then placed in the center of each flower.
I also decorated the envelope.
After altering all the cards in the set this would make a cute gift.
