As gifts are starting to roll in, I’m looking to DIY a simple thank you card. I am looking for inspirations for something simple to make.
Where are you finding your inspiration for those cards or did you buy premade ones? Thanks!

We’re having our photographer take a picture of us in our wedding gear holding signs that say Thank You (I saw it on here I think, maybe the knot). Anyway… it means no thank you cards until after the wedding, but it’ll be simple to have postcards printed up.
I’m also a bit of a planner and so have started thinking about what to write and thus have a file on my computer with the notes typed as the gifts come in so that I don’t have to be spontaneously grammatically correct and gracious 🙂

That’s such a great idea — remembering the notes as gifts come in 🙂

I found some really nice and plain note cards at Target on Clearance (200 for 5.00) They are in the wedding colors. I am going to get an embosser with our new monogram. I’ll just emboss it on the top of every card.

I ordered sheets of pretty paper that incorporated my wedding colors from Paper Source and ivory square cards. I took the large sheets (roughly 20" by 25") to Kinko’s and cut them down into sqaures, then I used double sided tape to affix the printed paper to the cards. I also used leftover envelopes from our invitations. It was very inexpensive (just over $50 for the whole project, about 100 cards, not including postage or the envelopes) and I LOVE how they turned out! I also love the other bees’ ideas–whatever you end up doing I really like the DIY thank yous–it’s so personal and meaningful.

we found some very nice cards on sale that tied into our theme and are personalizing them by lining the envelopes and using decorative punches for the corners of the cards.
for the wedding party, we’re using a photo booth to make signs spelling or writing out our specific thank yous.

Did you see these ones that Miss Caramel posted about?

I think they’re darling, and could be fairly simple to do…

My hubby and I did something very simple. We got colored (4×6) card stock from AC Moore and invitation envelopes (4 3/8 x 5 3/4) from staples. We cut the card stock just a little to make sure they fit into the envelopes. Then we hole punched the double happiness sign on lower right hand corner of each card. You can use any hole puncher. People love them.
