Say Thank You With Minted

Christmas has come and gone, and it was oh-so-wonderful!  I hope yours was just as lovely.

My boys are fortunate to have some fantastic people in their lives that definitely showered them with lots of love {and gifts} this year.  To let them know just how much the boys appreciate their new toys, I made these gorgeous thank you notes courtesy of my dear friends at Minted.

One of the things that I absolutely love about Minted are all the little extra details that you can add on to your cards.  I chose to add the “Skinny Wrap Address Labels” that are {I think} some of the cutest address labels I’ve ever seen.  I love that they wrap around the top of the envelope.

Another add on that I chose to get were these cute envelope closure stickers.  I don’t know about where you live, but in Georgia it is most definitely still winter!  So these snowflakes are the perfect way to finish the Thank You notes!

And, let me just add.  The QUALITY of the paper is phenomenal.  Their signature paper is thick {120 lb., 17 point thickness} and to me–perfection.  When I get photo cards made with a thicker paper, I know that means high quality.  They’ve got five options total for digital printing…you gotta love options, right?!

Once the thank you’s were written, the envelopes stuffed, and the stickers….stuck…they were ready to pop in the mailbox and send on their merry little way!

{Toddler Thank You Notes}

I come from a family of card givers.  My husband thinks it’s comical.  To me, there is nothing better than receiving a card or letter in the mail, call me old fashioned I guess.  I’m passing that card giving gene down to my little guy early, as he created his first thank you notes this past week.  So many people sent him gifts for Christmas, I wanted to send them a little thank you in return.

I can’t take credit for the idea, as I randomly saw it on Pinterest, yet sadly neglected to pin it, so I’m not sure of the source.  Do you ever do that?  I swear, it’s been happening to me more and more…

These are so easy to make and could easily be a Valentine card this year instead of a thank you.

Thank You Notes

To make a Toddler Thank You Card, you’ll need…

blank cards/matching envelopes

heart punch

crayons

black fine tip Sharpie

washi tape

Materials

I chose a square card and envelope set from Michael’s {take your coupons people}!

And I’ve slowly accumulated some cute washi tape over the past year that I’ve yet to really use.

To get started, I made sure Jackson was well fed and happy, so he’d be in the mood to do some coloring for a few minutes.  No one likes to try to get a hungry, grumpy toddler to do something!  While he ate, I punched the hearts in the front of each card.  I didn’t really care about the exact placement.  Some are in the middle, some are in the corner.  Do whatever you like best!

I then sat him in his high chair, gave him some crayons, and let him create his masterpieces.

He is currently ambidextrous.  Impressive, huh?!

Overall he colored 8 cards and it took two sittings.  About halfway through the cards he decided to throw the crayons at our dogs, so I knew he needed a break.  Soon he had some pretty good little works of art if I do say so myself.  Keep in mind, he’s 18 months old.

Toddler Thank You Notes

I added the saying on the front…”My art is yours” and wrote out his thank you inside each card.  To make the cards pop a bit more I also added a few pieces of washi tape to the front and as an envelope seal for fun.

I just love them and think they are so cute.
