Last year I really wanted to make some Christmas Thank-you cards but I left it too late and by the time I was ready to do them it was time to make Amelia’s birthday Thankyou cards!
I wanted to get a picture of Amelia with each gift and give them to people individually but with two children this time I have decided to just get a nice picture of them both in their matching Christmas pyjamas instead which has made it far easier – I didn’t even manage to do it with just one child last year so there’s no way it would work this time with two!
So this year I went out and got all of the bits straight away to get started with a bit of crafting asap!
First of all I wrote in all of the blank cards – it’s so much easier doing it this way around because you won’t be worried about ruining the decorated front. Plus if you make a mistake you can just get a new card without losing pictures or buttons!
I always stick down the picture first so it is central and this makes it easier to decorate around the outside.
Next I stuck the buttons down..
And then the Thankyou stickers (on other cards I have made I just used my sharpies to write down Thankyou)
And that’s it!
These Thankyou cards are so easy and cheap to make which is great because family love to receive little bits which show appreciation and they really do go very appreciated when delivered. It’s a lovely way to document how children grow and change each year too!
If you want to make similar cards I got all of the bits here for just £1 per pack of cards, buttons and stickers from Hobbycraft and printed the pictures off in Boots.
Do you have any special ways or traditions when it comes to thanking people for birthday/christmas presents?
