Make greeting card gifts with Sunflowers Remix.

Page kits are for more than just scrapbooking! By utilizing card making formulas, I was able to make two greeting card gifts from a single Sunflowers Remix page kit. Two gifts from a single kit? Yes, please!

I love giving handmade card sets as gifts. With the help of the new Deluxe Card Formula #1 and Formula #2, transform any page kit into a folio with ten cards and a lidded box filled with twelve mini notecards.

CARD FOLIO WITH TEN CARDS

The folio and card formula uses eight 12x12s. Use diagrams to trim Sunflowers papers using the following paper assignments:

  • A = Dark Green
  • B = Gold
  • C = Large Sunflower Print
  • D = Light Green
  • E = Gold
  • F = Large Sunflower Print
  • G = Small Sunflower Print
  • H = Brown

Sort and dry-fit the all pieces before applying adhesive. Trim photo mats from the Sunflowers Remix kit to create additional card panels. Use Cutaparts, ribbons and other embellishments to decorate each greeting card.

Cut a 1" border strip at 6" to reinforce the spine of the folio. Add a ribbon to create a closure. Trim two 4.25 x 6.25" photo mats to 4 x 5.5" to create panels for the front and back covers of the folio. Decorate as desired.

LIDDED BOX WITH MINI NOTECARDS

After creating the folio above, you should have four sheets of paper left. Deluxe Card Formula #1 uses four 12x12s to create a dozen 3x3" notecards with a matching lidded storage tray.

Paper Assignments:

  • A = Brown
  • B = Small Sunflower Print
  • C = Dark Green
  • D = Light Green

Sort and dry-fit the all pieces before applying adhesive. Use Cutaparts, ribbons and other embellishments from the Sunflowers Remix kit to decorate the notecards and lidded box. Add stamped sentiments if desired.

I just love these sweet little notecards. They're perfect for attaching to gifts!

Want a few extra mini notecards? Trim any remaining 4.25 x 6.25" photo mats to 3x6"; score and fold at 3". Trim the 3x12" brown plain (from making the folio above) horizontally at 6". Score and fold each 3x6" at 3".

If you're running low on decorative elements, download and print artwork from the Sunflowers digital hybrid kit and/or add stamped sentiments and images from your stash.

I can't wait to see what you create with these new formulas. Be sure to share your work on the Club Scrap Chat Facebook group.

Happy crafting!
