{Be Mine Greeting Card Journals} 14 heARTS Day #2







Be Mine Greeting Card Journal

These little greeting card journals are a little project that anyone can make and would be something great to create with children. They can be as fancy or simple as you wish…and you can add pockets on the inside to tuck little notes in.

I had to make one using the Scottish Laddie (those that know me will know why) and of course the beautiful bird postcard. I tried to keep this project super simple, and the dimensions can always be modified to various sizes.

If you want pockets on the inside cut another piece of cardstock these dimensions and set aside.
