The Art of Nature: Make Your Own Note Cards From Your Photos

Photo Note Cards From Nature

This week I am sharing with you the art of nature and what you can make with your own photos taken from nature.  

Life is full of lessons all around us.  We have to take the time to see what lessons we can learn from the nature around us and it will reveal those lessons to us one at a time.

This photo was taken in my front yard.  It is a beautiful swallowtail butterfly sitting on my flowering butterfly bush.  I happen to adore butterflies and have tons of flowering plants in my yard to attract them as well as the honey bees.

What you'll need to make your own note card from photos you have taken.  If you have a photo printer you can buy 4x6 photo paper and print out your own prints after you have uploaded off your phone or camera.  
If not, you can use several online sites like SnapFish for a very reasonable price.  Or, take your camera or phone to your nearby drug store such as Walgreens.  

1.  Photos you've taken and printed out 4x6 inches
2.  White Card Stock 8 1/2 x 11 inches
3.  Glue Stick
4.  Scissors
5.  Cutting tool

To begin simply lay your photo on the corner of your card stock and glue it in place.  

Next, you'll want to fold the card stock over to meet the edge and smooth out the fold using a butter knife or bottom of a plastic bottle.

Now you are ready to cut the card stock to fit the size of your photo (4x6 inches)

You can also use scissors if you do not have a cutting tool like mine.  Use your glue stick and coat the back of the photo and place it on top of the card stock.

You just made your own photo note card that you can send to a friend to #cheerup anytime your heart moves you to show love from the lessons of nature.

I hope you enjoyed this easy DIY Photo Note Card life lesson from nature.  Stay tuned as this series continues throughout the year as I share more life lessons from nature that you can share with your friends and family members.

Sending You Sunshine,
