Awhile back, I shared a kindness package I created to send out to friends in honor of my Share Handmade Kindness Challenge. In it, I included a set of what I call “random quotes of kindness” cards that I had printed. These little notes are great for placing in your child’s lunch box, on a stranger’s windshield, or just to have on hand to give out to someone who needs a little pick me up. My friend is currently selling them on Etsy HERE, but I also wanted to share a way that you can create your own.

For my little “random quotes of kindness,” I used a Simon Says Stamp speech bubble die. However, you can use any basic shape die, punch or cut piece. Small stamped images are fun for these little cards, so I used a few planner stamp sets by Sakuralala and paired them with sentiments from Clearly Besotted. I did some quick coloring of all the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

If you don’t have planner stamp sets, take another look at the stamp sets you already have. Many of them include tiny images that would be perfect for creating these cards. I plan on having the teachers at my kid’s school write notes on the back and pass them out at other schools that don’t have a lot of parent support to provide encouragement. However, I am completely *in love* with these little stamps from Sakuralala!

  1. I’ll from time to time keave message to my friends by whats app. should try to this in a small note form as introduced in your vid.

  2. stunning concept….and love the fact that they will be donated to schools without lots of support. I am sure the kids will greatly appreciate them.

  3. Great idea. I’m organising a baby shower for my daughter and think this will be a fabulous and lovely way for the guests to write and share their best words of wisdom to the new parents. They could be linked together into a little book, which would be a great keepsake for my daughter and support her as she starts on one of the most precious journeys in life, parenthood. She could also hand it down to her child, with notes on each page, where she may have ‘tweaked’ the note. A variation on the cookery book where recipes are adapted. Thank you for the inspiration.

  4. I’m a teacher and at our school we are assigned a partner to give a RAK to during the year, and we also like leaving little notes stuck to small individual chocolates to show our appreciation, etc. It creates a great environment to work in.

  5. I love this!!!!! I am a teacher and I give notes like this to my staff at the start of school and at the holidays!!!!!

  6. I often write little notes for my daughter to make her smile and give some support. Her husband is suffering from cancer and she’s doing a great job helping him and also be a great loving mum for our wonderful granddaughters.

  7. Awesome idea! My hubby and I would always give each other little notes of encouragement and love when the other needed it. Also, my kids, over the years, have always used their creativity to write sweet little messages to me and I cherish these with all my heart. Now that they are grown and on their own, I put all their little notes in a handbound book so it can be looked through whenever I’m feeling nostalgic. Thanks to you and Sakuralala for the fantastic giveaway! πŸ™‚

  8. I have left little sticky notes with words like you are beautiful and you are strong, on the bathroom mirrors of public ladies restroom. Hopefully it has helped someone feel batter about themselves at a time they needed it the most. I still have a little piece of notebook paper my husband wrote I love you on the first time he told me, I was working on homework and he was helping me and the first time he said I love you he gave me that torn out corner of a notebook page and whispered I love you in my ear. That was 32 years ago we just celebrated our dating anniversary. I guess I am lucky my husband remembers both our dating and our wedding anniversary. Sometime its those little notes that inspire someone or just make their day.

  9. I used to leave notes in my kids lunches. I need to do this again. I think it would be fun to do at work. They don’t call it “work” because it’s fun…so a little pick-me-up would be a fun thing to do for my co-workers. Yeah, another goal for the year. Got a love a new year goal that involves creating!

  10. Thanks for this giveaway, very kind!
    Leaving little notes for each other has been something that my daughter and I have done all her life. I love going through my little stash of her notes occasionally, such lovely memories. Nowadays I tend to put messages for others in a card, or with a doti doll, or some little gift…just to let someone know they are in my thoughts.

  11. Love this idea – thank you for your continued inspiration to share handmade kindness! I like leaving notes for my coworkers πŸ™‚

  12. I love leaving little notes for people. In the summer here often there are notes left behind on benches in parks or at bus stops or in areas where homeless are. I think these world be perfect for that to make up a couple dozen and then just go drop them off to be found later.

  13. Sorry to miss out such a cute set. This is something that I have done on and off for years. Either made my own or have bought some at other card vendors, Christian book stores, etc., Its’ so much fun like you!

  14. I put notes in my husbonds lunch box. Co-workers have noticed, and told their wifes, and one co-workes wife began to put notes in his lunch box! Just love the idea of sharing a thought, idea or qoute – anything that might lighten his day.

  15. I love u from the core of my heart for having such kindness challenges .I am Padmaja and i am 13 years old .i live in Bangalore ,India and i am very intrested in card making.

  16. I clicked on the link for the speech bubble die (that I love) and the page does not exist. I did a web search and could not find a speech bubble like it. Any suggestions? Thanks

  17. Oh I just love these cute little notes. Instead of just a hand written note, it’s so nice to add some lovely to it.
