30 Days of Gift Making- Blog Hop

Welcome to the 21st Day of the
hosted by the wonderful Jill at The Scrapoholic

Yesterday if you have been following along, you would have visited Michelle at Scrapin With My Bug.  If you missed out on her wonderful project, it isn't to late to go back and take a look. 

As you know by now if you have been following along, this unique blog hop was designed for you to take a closer look at one blog each day for 30 days of November.  Each day you will find a holiday gift idea.  Today, I am sharing packaged thank you notes.  After the holidays it is probably safe to say that many people will be in need of thank you notes.  So, a thoughtful hostess gift, stocking stuffer, or gift for a friend might be a package of thank you notes:)

This is a 5-pack of thank you notes that comes in two different sizes.  Three of the cards are smaller notes for those who want to write just a quick thank you and two of the cards a larger notes for those who have more to say.

These are the different sayings that are on the thank you notes.  The last one got cut off in the picture.  First, each sentiment is typed onto a 8.5" x 11" piece of paper.

Next, circles are cut out of card stock and placed over the sentiments (attach a small piece of double sided tape to the back of the circle).  The sizes will vary depending on how big you want to make your notes and what sayings you use.  Here the circles are: 1.5", 2", 1.5", 1.75". and 2".

Now run that paper through the printer and the sentiment will appear on the circle:)  You must be careful never to let the tape go through without card stock covering it.  This is bad for the printer!  To shadow the circles, cut out brown card stock one size bigger for each circle.

To finish of the notes, add a flower and a bow and some stitching.  These packaged cards will be on sale at my holiday craft show for $10.00.  If anyone is interested in purchasing a set, just leave me a comment and I will be in touch with you.  I make many different styles and designs.  This is just one of many:)

Tomorrow, you will be visiting Christy at Ladybugz-Creations

Thanks for stopping by


  1. Your Thank You cards are very pretty! Thanks for sharing. I will have to try this hopefully I will get the sentiment inside of the circles instead of outside.

  2. Love the color combos Madison.


  3. Great set of Thank You cards. Love that shade of pink! I think I'm going to make some of these up for my daughter's teachers for Christmas presents. I wish I could find the celo bags locally but I think I'm going to have to buy them online. Thanks for sharing.
