Crafty Kids | DIY Thank You Cards
This is the time of the year that I make resolutions, but it’s also the time of the year that I’m busy writing Thank You cards. Actually, let me be honest, in theory I should be doing that, but sometimes I’m bad about it. And, I know we’re living in an online era, but there’s really nothing that can ever compare to receiving something in the mail, especially a Thank You card, don’t you think? That being said, I find when I make a craft project out of something, it not only motivates me, but also motivates my children too!
My two oldest daughter (ages 5 and 7) are now at the age where they love writing letters to people. Together, we came up with this Thank You card design. It’s a little Kraft/Parcel paper wrapped gift and pom-pom on top. I think it’s works well because it can be used for any occasion!
To make these crafty Thank You cards, your child will need:
Blank White Index Cards
Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue Sticks (optional)
Small Squares cut out of Brown Kraft/Parcel paper
Small Pom-Poms of any color (one color or assorted colors)
Envelopes (Tip: choose some large enough to fit the cards once the pom-poms are affixed)
Write thank you letters on one side of the blank index cards.
Once you’ve written your letter, flip your card over to the other side. Cut out small squares of brown Kraft/Parcel paper and apply glue to the back of the square.
Affix the brown paper square and glue a pom-pom to the top of the square. You can glue the pom-pom with school glue or hot glue (your choice). The hot glue will provide a more secure hold and will dry faster.
Write “Thank You” next to the Kraft/Parcel paper gift with marker.
Now you’re ready to mail! Slip the card inside an envelope large enough to fit the pom-pom (which are a tad bulky) and then mail your letter.
And now… thank YOU for being such an awesome reader of Classic Play!
