Make it: Petite Pennant Notecards

You know you've done it. You go into Target with a list of items and leave with a few extras? Yes? I do that pretty much every time I enter into the big red bullseye. It just cannot be helped! But recently while perusing the Dollar Spot I found cute craft paper, washi tape, and the cutest little notecards. So I gathered everything up and heck for a $1 a pop it was a bargain, right? (convincing voice). Now I was in possession of all of these sweet, springy craft items but what to do with them? Well I looked on the back of the card package and their was a picture of a card with pennants on it, how fun! That is a perfect idea, so thank you Target for not only having the cute craft items but also a great simple idea to go with it, score!
So I decided that after Oliver went down for bed I would arm myself with glue and scissors and a large glass of red wine and make a couple of sets of petite pennant notecards.

Gather all of the paper goods, again I got mine at Target but Michaels or Paper Source have a great selection of scrapbook items as well. 

First I wanted to jazz up the inside of the envelope. I traced and outline of the envelope on the scrapbook paper and cut it out smaller than the trace so it would fit inside as a liner. 

Next, carefully cut out about half inch size triangles out of a different color of craft paper, these will be your pennant flags. 

Glue down your flags so that they arc across that card. 

And that is it. Continue with other colors, alternating the liner color and the flag color so that you have a medley of colors to choose from! Now you have your very own set of blank notecards which are perfect for birthdays, congratulations or just a simple note hello! Thanks Target!
