A Sweet Way to Say, Thank You

A Sweet Way to Say, Thank You by somethingwewhippedup.com

Would you want one in the mail? I hope so!

My recent birthday will go down as one to remember. The weekend (yes, I said weekend) included several unexpected out-of-town guests, meals at my favorite restaurants and lots of good fun. The cherry on top ended up being a private after-hours party at a local ice cream shop where I got to create my own ice cream flavor then pedal a shiny red bike hooked up to a hand-churned ice cream machine to mix it. The night was so special and I knew my thank you notes had to be, too. I was able to quickly make the cards pictured above with a few goodies I had lying around the house.

You can do the same, all you need is:

  • textured cardstock
  • oversized hole-punch
  • scissors
  • computer with a printer
  • pinking shears
  • glue
  • heart stickers
  • colorful envelopes

Take one piece of 4.5” x 5” cardstock and fold it in half to create each card. Select several complimentary colors of cardstock and cut out several circles with an oversized hole-punch. Use scissors to cut a cone shape from brown cardstock. Type the words “thank you” into your computer’s word processing program. Play around with the font and colors until you find one you like and print. Cut the printed text out with pinking shears. Glue the text, cone and three circles onto the front of the card. Finish with a heart sticker and mail in a colorful envelope.

Hopefully, the friends who receive these notes in the mail will think they are as special and sweet as I thought the night was.
