Recycled Note Of The Week: Handmade Flower Thank You Cards

Just in time for all of the post-holiday thank you cards you’ll no doubt be sending, this week’s Recycled Note O’ The Week will help you say thank you in style while using handmade recycled materials, too.

Thank you notes with flowers of handmade paper, from PulpArt:

The listing is for 5 thank you notes in a pack, and in the set featured above the seller used “calendula flower petals, angle wings (a botanical from Thailand) as well as all different colors of recycled but high-quality junk mail.”

A note from the seller on her process for making the handmade paper:

I make handmade paper the old-fashioned way, by combining recycled paper with water in a blender. I combine the pulp with inclusions in a vat and then run a mold and deckle through the water to pick up the pulp and form a piece of paper. Once the paper dries, I adhere it to heavy card stock to make the cards you see here. These whimsical cards have a stem made by stamping “thank you” multiple times with a rubber stamp. Each card is a standard greeting card size (5 x 7) with a matching (A7) envelope. Each card is blank inside, completely unique and is suitable for framing.

PulpArt is currently featuring three different designs of these lovely handmade thank you cards, and even better, offering free! shipping on all thank you card packs from January 5-January 15th.

I myself would be surprised if you don’t see something specific you like in the shop, but if you don’t, PulpArt takes custom orders, too.

Happy! thank you writing.

    I love these cards. I just bought one of her fern cards, and I’ll probably buy more later. I love finding new etsy shops.
