Three Terrific Notecards

There’s something to suit everyone – an adorable sausage dog, a dreamy sailing boat or a delicious looking ice-cream.

You will need: a printer, paper/card, scissors, coloring pencils or pens, twine, tape or glue, foiled card and colored paper (optional). Please go here for the templates.

Boat Notecard

Step 1: Print out the sheets and cut out the notecards with scissors.

Step 2: Fold back the sails along the dotted lines. You will need to add color. You can do this with coloring pencils or you can cut out the sails from colored paper. We found that stripes work really well on one of the sails.

Step 3: Use the anchor template on some silver foiled card or you can just color it in using a silver pen.

Step 4: Poke a hole in the top of the anchor using a pencil and then another in the main part of the boat.

Step 5: Next take your twine and tie to the anchor and then the boat.

Step 6: Glue the ­flag in the middle of the sails.

Sausage dog and Ice-cream notecards

Step 1: Print out the sheets and cut out the notecards with scissors.

Step 2: Fold along the dotted lines. The ice cream notecard folds in on itself and the sausage dog folds like a concertina.

Step 3: (Sausage Dog only). Cut the round tag for the dog collar from some silver foil card or color with a silver foil pen, and glue on to the collar.

Step 4: Stick the ­flaps down using glue or tape.

Write your notes and send to your friends or family. For extra embellishment you can decorate the envelope and card with lots of fun stickers. We’ve got a great range including unicorns, mermaids, tropical, space and many more.
