Crafturday Creative Mess 11 - Thank you cards

 It has taken me a while to write and send out thank you cards for the gifts we’ve received for Diwali. To me, writing a thank you card is serious business. I really want each one to be heart felt, and to let the giver know how meaningful their gift truly is to me. Each card has unique thoughts, and because of this I usually only complete 1 or 2 cards once I finally sit down to write.

It is more interesting for me to use different cards, instead of the same ones each time (even though I know they are going out to different people). That is where my new Butterfly craft punch comes in. I’ve had these cheap, plain cards hanging around for a while. All it took was a few pieces of scrap paper and voila! a new look to otherwise plain cards. You can also give a new look to generic thank you cards, if there are any lying at home. My thank you cards were made of butterflies all lined up and punched from many different colors of paper.

Also, if you haven’t already seen them, butterfly collages are a really fun way to use this punch, too.
