Holiday Thank You Notes

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!

  1. That is really clever! These would be a good way to get the kids into wanting to write thank you notes, if they can help make them too! :o)
    Thanks for the info! Yours turned out great!
