Thank You Notes!

Let's make some old fashioned thank you notes.
Even though it is easier and faster to send a text or email note,
there is nothing like receiving appreciative Snail Mail.
(more fun than getting all bills)

Right after Christmas we would take a day and make
thank you notes to send to family and friends.
Before they could write, I would have the kids hold a
'Thank You' sign along with the gift. I would then take pictures
of them with the sign and gift.
We would attach the pictures to a note card. 
(Don't forget to add the date for future reference.)

Other ideas for Thank You Notes:

Artwork made into note cards
Decorated Post Cards
A dictated letter on decorated letter paper

Please add more ideas!

As cards arrive in the mail, 
check the return address 
to see if you have the most current information
before discarding the envelope.

I enjoy greeting cards--making, sending, receiving, displaying!

The tree and decorations packing boxes were actually found this season!
Even after putting on the lights and the ornaments it still looked a little empty.
Christmas cards began to arrive, so I decided to display them on the tree.
The cards nicely filled in the blank spaces.

Materials- bows with twist ties, paper punch and cards.

 Punch a hole in the corner of the card and add the bow.
 Be sure you can open and read the inside.

Keep these supplies close by the tree.
Add cards as they arrive in the mail.
Email greetings can be printed as well
an attached in the same way.

Attach the card to the branches
of the tree with the twist tie.

It's not too late to make a simple Advent Calendar/Count down to Christmas.
I 'scraplifted' this idea from, so I will give those designers the credit.
It's a very simple idea made with envelopes.
However, here are a few more ideas I came up with:
If different sizes of envelopes aren't available, just use what is.
Papercrafting paper could also be folded into envelopes. Another idea would be to use white envelopes and have the young people color and draw on each one. Add numbers 1-24.


Easy Advent Calendar

Our simplest Advent calendar to date, this is a minimalist take on the holiday tradition: Form the shape of a Christmas tree with envelopes in various sizes, and mark each with adhesive numbers. Stuff them with thin, lightweight presents, such as gift cards and stickers. Use painters' tape to secure the envelopes to the wall.
