After our adventures in the PNW, we came home with a lot to be thankful for. We were so lucky to spend time with friends both old and new, and our silly dinner conversations, cupcake eating and (let’s be honest) drunken, playful nights together will forever be the starts of later conversations such as, remember when we…?
Although many thank yous, hugs and kisses were involved, we wanted to (snail) mail note cards as another simple way to say, we think you’re great! But after shopping around for unique and cheery thank you cards with no luck, we decided on the next obvious course of action: DIY.
Solid color note cards and envelopes with a stripe of decorative tape are not only sweet and simple, but they’re more personal, don’t you think? We used kraft cards, gold envelopes and Smash tape (all picked up from our local art supple store), but there are so many ways to mix and match to suit your style (and that of your friends, too!). The best part is that most paper bundles come in packs of ten, so you’ll have more on hand when the time comes (and save a few trips to the craft stores).
Do you still send out traditional cards? We might not be holiday-card-givers (they say that’ll come after your first human child; is this true?), but we do love a good piece of unexpected snail mail.
