DIY Easy Thankyou Cards

Since it was my birthday last week, I wanted to send a few Thankyou cards. Particually to my grandparents as they love a thankyou card! 

I can never find a pack of Thankyou cards I like, so I wanted to make my own. As I forgot to do them at christmas it’s even more important to remember to write them on my birthday! As I had a few to make I wanted to keep it simple as well as giving my new marbling kit a go! 

I thought I’d share this simple Thankyou card make with you, so that you don’t get in trouble with your grandparents either! 

You will need:

  • Watercolour paper ( Mines from Tiger £3)
  • Black fine liner ( My Fave is a Staedtler triplus fineliner)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Marbled paper. 

Step one:

Take a piece of the watercolour paper, fold it in half and cut into two. Try to do your best straight line cutting! 

Fold each half in half again to make a small card.

Step two:

Take your marbled paper and write Thankyou in capital letters in the centre of the paper using your fine liner. 

Draw centimetre lines in a circle around the word, then add leaves. Fill in gaps with flowers and dots. 

Step three:

Trim down the marbled paper around your beautiful drawing, I cut some into a long thin rectangles and some into circles. 

Step four:

Glue your marbled paper onto your card. 

Step five:

Add a lovely thankyou message and pop your cards into the post, let good old snail mail take its course!
