Use the utility knife to make a slit for the tab to tuck into. Refer to the photos below as a guide for my incredibly precise, technical process. Ha! Basically, I pencil a “frowny face” over the “smiley face” that is the card lip. I lift the lip, connect the arch and use that as a guide for cutting the slit. Afterward, just erase all the guidelines.

Now all that’s left to do it to glue a button, charm, or sticker on the card lip so it looks like your purse is buttoned up.

Note that if you are mailing your free printable note cards you’ll want to choose a flat, non-metallic button or charm so your card will arrive safely without damage.

If the inside pattern of your card is too dark or busy to write on, just glue a white piece of cardstock to the inside and write your message. I find using a medium tip Sharpie marker over the pattern is sufficient for a quick note though. Enjoy! I know your recipients will.
