DIY ‘Thank You’ card
I am keen on being courteous and polite. It is something that I was brought up with and I try to ensure that my daughter shows courtesy where it is due. Therefore, after hosting a party, I believe that it is courteous to send a ‘Thank You’ card. My daughter celebrated her 14th birthday last weekend, and she really wanted to thank the girls for coming and to show her appreciation for the gifts she received. I love making things and decided to make a DIY ‘Thank You’ card. The cards are so colourful and the girls just loved them!
In this post, I show you how I made the DIY ‘Thank You’ card. My design is so easy and it includes a small gift too (a ‘thank you’ token gift).
Striped, paper bag
Coloured paper (for the stars)
Access to a computer & printer
Using a program such as MS Word, LibreOffice or even Wordpad, type ‘Thank you!’ and print onto coloured paper. I used lemon, A4 paper. Then cut it out in the shape of a ribbon (see image).
With a sheet of pink A4 paper, make the origami star. It is easy to do, following the instructions in the YouTube clip.
If you like, you can write a personal message on a small piece of paper and place in the striped, paper bag.
Start assembling the striped, paper bag, origami star, party popper streamer, key ring (I bought the paisley felt elephant keyring from Paperchase) and your ‘Thank you!’ ribbon. Once you are happy with the arrangement, clip together with a paper-clip. Et violá! You now have a DIY ‘Thank You’ card. Finally, carefully insert your card in an envelope (make sure it is big enough to fit your DIY ‘Thank You’ card, without it being too tight).
I hope you like my DIY ‘Thank You’ card. It’s good to have fun when you’re making something. Have you ever made a Thank You card? I’d love to see your design! 🙂
