If you’ve been reading the blog for a while or follow me on Instagram, you know I love beautiful stationery. I’m a sucker for the boxed notecards at HomeGoods and I’ve been known to handcraft my own monogram notecards.
As a business owner and lifestyle blogger, I make it a practice to send cards and notes to all my design clients and to new friends that I meet through blogging. I also love to give beautiful stationery as gifts.
Today I’m sharing a fun and stylish gift idea that’s easy to pull together, Monogrammed Stationery Suite!
The first thing you’ll need to do to create this stationery set is to compile an assortment of notecards. The perfect stationery suite should include thank you cards, blank note cards, blank or decorative tags and maybe even some decorative or monogrammed stickers.
Here are the items I included in my set:
tip: You may also want to include a pretty pen in the stationery suite so the gift recipient has everything they need to send notes.
Next, head to the store and pick up a small acrylic drawer unit. I purchased this one from HomeGoods for less than $8 but I also love this one from the Container Store.
Once all the items are pulled together, arrange them in each drawer so all the cards and stickers can be seen.
To personalize the top of the box, use these embroidered iron-on letters and simply glue them onto the top of the box.
tip: the initials are white when you purchased them but you can easily use a Sharpie to change the color like I did. I used this same technique when I made my DIY monogram straw hat.
