I really appreciate thank-you notes, there is something really nice about getting a thank-you note after someone has done something thoughtful for you. I try really hard to send them out after gifts are given, and I’m trying to make it a habit for my boys.
These are some fun cards I made for the gifts that were given to Tobin for his first birthday. I really like these cards because I was able to use scraps to make them and left-over gift tags from the goody bags to decorate them. Recycling for the win!
- Metallic card stock that I bought about 4 years ago for a single holiday layout (not my smartest purchase).
- Lime-green card stock strips that are scraps from our wedding program two years ago,
- Patterned paper scraps from the banner I made for Tobin’s party,
- Scotch double-sided tape (my favorite adhesive), and
- Tiny 3D pop-up dots.
This is a simple card, but I love that it is theme-binding from the party, that I didn’t buy any new products to make them, and that I got them out to the gift givers within a week of the party!
What is your favorite way to say thank you for a gift or a thoughtful gesture? Do you think it’s necessary to give thank-you notes?
