Printable Happy Owl Note Card | DESIGN IS YAY!

I’m feeling more chirpy lately now that Spring is here, even though the weather is still very chilly. I’ve created some Happy Owl note cards in different colours for you to download and print. I love stationery with a little bit of personalisation, so you will need to get a little crafty with this printable.

rintable Happy Owl Note Card | DESIGN IS YAY!

Materials: A4 card stock, a colour printer, scissors, x-acto knife, embellishment brads and pen

Step 1: Overlap one of the wings on one side of the owl template, and make a little mark by puncturing a hole into the white dot available. You don’t need a big hole.
Step 2: Insert the embellishment brad, and fasten the back.
Step 3: Repeat for the other side
Step 4: You should be able to move the wings, and don’t forget to write your messages!

Have you had one of those days when you’re so full of big ideas and your mind jump from one task to another? I find that it helps to write them all down so that I spend less energy in trying to remember those ideas and the tasks. Let your mind be free by writing it all down on this printable notepaper I’ve created for you to download. The grid style paper also allows you to draw your ideas instead of writing them down.

By the way, those lavender are from my own garden, which I never knew existed. When my mum came to visit in September, she saw this patch of dried plant and she gave it a good trim. Come summer, voilà.… they bloom and smell so good.

These notecards are A5 size (14.8 x 10.5 cm or 5.8 x 8.3″), so they are also perfect for personal planners as well. I’m using them for my Kikki K personal planner, I can’t tell you enough how much I love it.

I love the idea of stocking stuffers. They may not be as meaningful and expensive as your main gift, but they still bring little bits of cheer to the christmas morning gift-unwrapping ritual. Or if you’re short on the gift budget this year, these 5 printable stocking stuffers won’t cost you any money (except maybe paper and printer ink), and they are a lot of fun!

5 Stocking Stuffer Ideas

1. Reindeer Colouring Cards
This would be perfect for the little ones. It can also be an activity to do after your christmas feast!

2. Instagram Photo Gift Box
If your friend is an insta-addict, he/she is going to appreciate having their instagram photos printed and packaged in this cute instagram-inspired gift box. Printing instagram photos are easier than you think! You can also set a theme: wedding photos, he and she photos, pet photos, children photos, food photos, and many more.

3. Matryoshka Memory Game
They are so cheerful and fun, makes these matryoshka cards the perfect stocking stuffer!

4. Pocket Books
With three covers to print, all you need is some paper for the insert and stapler or just tie them up with twine to bind, just like what I did.

5. Retro Recipe Cards
For the cooks with a lot of secret recipes, they can finally write them down and have them as keepsake.
