So it's that time of year again...time to write thank you notes for the Christmas gifts we received. This year, instead of using my personal note cards or buying new ones, I decided to try my hand at making thank you notes. Now, I'm no fancy scrapbooker, so the finished result is less than professional, but I think they turned out OK.
Here's a close-up of one of the smaller notes:
Complete instructions can be found here. I didn't make them as ornate as the creator did, but I like them. I just cut out a mitten template--freehand--and glued Christmas wrapping paper on a piece of cardstock. After tracing the template on the wrong side, I cut it out and let the glue dry a bit. I took scrapbooking scissors with a curvy edge and cut out a border from cardstock and glued it to the wrist end. Then I hole-punched small holes (and broke the hole punch in the process!) and threaded a piece of curling ribbon through. Tied a bow and curled the ends. Very easy!
