I woke up today and felt happy and content. Was it because I saw him last night? Maybe. But I just felt really good about myself.
I made little pockets for my planner and I had all these scrap card-stock that I didn’t want to go to waste. So I made mini thank you cards for the people I love. <3 It’s pretty simple. Go get your stuff! :) Haha.
What you’ll need:
Cardstock, of course
Any scrap colorful paper
White gel pen
I think I’m going to make these more often and give away as many as I can. :) Simple thank you cards always warm the heart.
I found my little brother has a school planner laying around. I skimmed through it and saw that the patterns on the top were really cool. I didn’t think he’d need it anymore considering August 2010 was about a year ago. :) You can also use catalogs, coupon books, newspapers, just about anything! :] I trimmed off the top, cut it into little strips and glued them onto the little cards.
I love LOVE LOVE rounded corners. I don’t have one of those fancy corner punches so I used this wavy-edged pair of scissors my dad bought me a while ago. It did just the trick. :] Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads out there, by the way!
I wrote “Thank you”s in the front of the cards with my white gel pen. It gets a little frustrating sometimes though because the ink doesn’t come out or it skips. You can use any colored gel pen for this; whatever floats your boat. I also drew faux stitches on the card. Why? Because I love those too. :]And TA-DA! :] Here are four different cards made the same way; the layouts are just different. Oh, I love to experiment. :D and variety.
That’s all for now!
I hope you had a great weekend. <3
