DIY Thank You Cards

HOW TO MAKE CUTE & STYLISH THANK YOU CARDS

After Ethan’s christening I had a tonne of thank you cards to write.

I always think it’s nice to show people how much you appreciate their kindness and for me, creating something personal really shows you’ve put in the effort.

Being a new mummy though, time is of the essence, that’s why I came up with this idea! Not only this, but this idea is a great option for low cost thank you cards as they cost very little to produce with an online printing company versus buying them in stores.

How to make this stylish, personalised Thank You card

1. I used two helium confetti balloon displays by The Pretty Little Party Shop (left over from the Christening party). I placed these on a neutral coloured rug.
2. I tied a thick, satin ribbon between the balloons.
3. I used left over craft effect envelopes and wrote a letter on each envelope in black felt tip, spelling out “Thanks”
4. I attached each letter to the ribbon with a small wooden peg.
5. This was then scene prepared! I then chose a cute outfit for Ethan – deliberately picking a bright orange t-shirt so he would stand out against the backdrop, but not clash with it, and his t-shirt colour also pulled out the orange of the ribbon too.
6. Once we got the right shot in good light with Ethan looking happy and smiley, the work was done – I simply ordered the image to come on 6×4 inch postcards from an online printing company!
