First Birthday Thank You Cards

by Lila on March 11, 2015

DIY - First birthday thank you cardsIt feels like it was just yesterday when Grayson turned one. I have so much to share with you all about the past months. One of these things is the diy thank you card I made for Grayson’s birthday.

In getting everything together for the little one’s party I thought of thank you cards. This is partly because I constantly strive, sometimes without success, to show appreciation for the love and support we receive from our family and friends.  It is also because I know if I don’t have thank you cards before the party occurs, I won’t manage to write them after.

DIY - First birthday thank you cardsI was inspired by a stack of blank cards I had from a project I made ages ago and the Mini Squares from Print Studio. The Mini Squares were the perfect size for a stand-alone image on these sweet little cards. The great price and the fact that I already was putting in an order to Print Studio for my invites and some party decor sealed the deal. Done and done.

So I grabbed my camera, cut the flap off of a cardboard box, free-handed “Thank You” in block letters, and sat down to take a boat load of pictures. The cardboard was key. It doesn’t flop over and if all else fails you can just prop it next to your child.

DIY - First birthday thank you cardsTo make:

  1. Create a sign on your cardboard and hand it to your baby in a part of your house with good light and little mess.
  2. Take lots of pictures.
  3. Send your photos to Print Studio to be printed. If you don’t need 48 thank you cards, grab a couple other prints for another project.
  4. Use adhesive squares to adhere print to blank card.
  5. Write. Send. Done.

So simple, so sweet, so fun to receive in the mail.
