Hi friends! Last week we had a party for my stepson, so this weekend we had to get the ‘Thank You’ cards done. That’s the rule right–a week later? Seriously I have no idea about ‘thank you’ card ettiquette, I just figured that I better get them done before I forget!
I came up with these easy cards that you or your kids can make super fast. You may even already have these supplies in your craft closet, but if not they are all available at your local craft store (like Michael’s!)
Bright paper (I used Astrobrights)
Washi tape in various colors and patterns (I used 3)
Small foam brush
How to DIY Kid’s ‘Thank You’ Cards:
Step 1: Fold the paper in quarters.
Step 2: Print out the wording you like for the cover (this one is in the font Scream Outlined from MS Word)
Step 3: Apply the Washi tape at an angle in an alternating pattern over the top of the word(s).
Step 4: Because the Washi tape is transparent, you can see the wording underneath. Cut out the letters.
Step 5: Add a light coat of the Mod Podge to the back of the letters, and stick them in place. Once set, add a coat of Mod Podge to the entire section.
Step 6: Decorate the rest of the card with the Washi tape.
Easy card your kid’s can help you make in no time! I made a handful of these in about 30 minutes, some of you may even beat my time!
With so many varieties of Washi tape and paper, you can easily custmize this to be ‘girly’ or what ever you choose! Let your imagination run wild!
Do you DIY your Kid’s cards?
