overdue thank you


Thank You cards for my birthday have been on my list for well months, since my birthday! ;) I finally knocked them out the other night.  I am a firm believer in thanking people in a special way if I can when they do something so wonderful for you, like come to your Birthday Soiree!

I do enjoy blogs that show the process of making things. Unfortunately I NEVER remember to pull my camera out till after I have finished something. Ugh! I am going to work on this as I want my blog to be one that if I stumbled across I would stop and stay awhile.

But the basic rundown. I ordered fun prints of all the couples/families at my party, and some of just me and my boys for gifts from people who weren’t at my party.

I then cut scrapbook paper to about 6″ x 5.25″ to fit in the envelopes I had. I taped the photo to the paper, this way they can take the photo off and frame it or hang it up on their refridgorater if they want. I then printed several lines of  Thank You on scrapbook paper cut to fit in my printer. I tore along one edge of the thank you paper, and then cut out the rest in strips. I taped the thank you strips overlapping the pictures slightly, and added a decorative masking tape embellishment. Simple, yet fun, and something they can keep as a memory. I wrote the actual thank you notes on the back.

I hope this inspires you to make and send a real live in hand thank you note or card.
