Searching for a meaningful card at the store can be difficult because they often don’t say exactly what you want. Making your own card is easy and fun—and will surely be treasured by the recipient. Here are the steps to creating an extra-special ‘thank you’ card that everyone (especially grandparents) will adore:
1. Show the recipient how much you appreciate their present with a photo
Snap a pic of little ones’ faces as they open their gifts. Missed the moment? No worries—you can always sneak a shot of them playing with their new toy or wearing their new sweater later. You can even get the whole family in on the action. Loved ones will delight in seeing your bright smiles and take heart in knowing that you cherish the gifts they’ve sent.
2. Design your own card
This step is easy and fun, and can be done using items found around the house. Here’s what you’ll need:
Festively colored cardstock
Make sure to use quality paper for the background of your card. Choose a color that represents the magic of the holidays—red, green and blue are classic choices.
Choose a photo
Pick the best picture of your family enjoying their gifts and paste it to the cardstock. No need for the photo to be perfectly centered—a diagonal placement can be easier on the eyes. If you’re handy with a pair of scissors, you can even cut out the background from your image. Have multiple frame-worthy photographs? Don’t hesitate to use more than one, or just include the rest inside the envelope.
Use leftover wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, and your imagination
Instead of recycling, reuse those packaging scraps to decorate your card. Get as creative as you like with glitter, stickers and even die-cut letters and shapes. Kids love to get involved in this step.
Don’t forget the envelope!
There are plenty of colorful options out there, including some that feature holiday imagery. Feel free to let the kids add their own creative touches to the envelope too; just make sure to leave room for the stamp, the recipient’s mailing info and your return address.
