Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I still feel like I'm getting back into the swing of things after the long-ish weekend but I wanted to share a quick DIY that may be fun to try during the upcoming holiday season!
Let me first preface with this…I have been the WORST at writing/sending thank you notes! I'm really the worst at any kind of mail sending, really. (ask my good friend Beth…she sends me a handwritten card every few months and I guarantee that she can count on one hand how many letters i've sent…it's sad, I know.)
I'm ashamed to say that most of the thank you cards from our wedding were never sent…after 6 months of sitting on the half written stack, I wasn't sure if it was more embarrassing to send them so late, or not to send them at all.
That being said, I'm working on it…slowly trying to redeem myself. I think it's important…
to show gratitude
not to take people for granted
to slow down and personally hand write a note in this crazy busy world of ours
…when I do it, I'm glad I did.
So…I made these fun thank you cards for Graham's birthday guests! I had so many adorable photos from the party and it just so happened that I had a picture of Graham with each gift he received. I thought it would add a personal touch for each person to see him enjoying what they picked out for him!
They are so simple, yet personal, and I was so happy with how they turned out!
I'm thinking that you could also do something similar for personalized gift tags, simple family Christmas cards or just a quick note to a friend to add a personal touch. You could also print wallet sized photos for smaller cards.
Blank Note Cards (card stock would also work)
*I added text to each photo in Photoshop Elements but it isn't necessary.
I would love to see what creations you come up with, I'm always inspired by others creativity! 🙂 Let me know if you have any questions…I'm always happy to share.
