5 Quick and Easy Thank You Cards
Making thank you cards is such a lovely way to round off the festive season, not only does it provide some much-needed relaxation time but it is also a great opportunity to show people your gratitude. These ideas are all tried and tested with my own children, quick and simple to make it means you can get a great many cards done at once - we tend to make a big batch and set aside ready for whenever we need a thank you card. Despite designing these for children, I'd be quite happy to send them for myself, the joy with all these designs are that you can continue adding and embellishing to your heart's content!

How to make
You will also need:
Washing up liquid
Bowl or a glass
Bubble printing can be done with preschoolers and older children alike, very much a process craft, little ones will love the popping of the bubble when you print, just remember to tell them to blow and not suck!
For this card a simple scene of flowers is created, however, there are so many possibilities for different motifs. For young children, fingerprints can create the base for funny faces, animals or simply patterns in themselves.
Marbling is such a beautifully mindful technique. Here I've used the inks without the setting 'size' meaning the marbling effect is very subtle, I think this works so well as a base for putting other elements on top, or simply for showing off the vibrancy of the colours in the card.
Washi tape comes is such a wide variety of colours and patterns the scope of cardmaking ideas is immense! This simple candle design is well suited to birthdays but is so effective I'd use it for any occasion.
These Hama bead cards are such a great way to use up your child's many beaded masterpieces! Such a lovely therapeutic activity and fantastic for fine motor skills. Choosing colours and creating patterns is great for getting those little minds engrossed in composition.
Arrange the beads onto the template and then seal with an iron according to the instructions with the Hama beads.
Apply glue liberally to the back of the heart and stick to the card, this will take a while to dry.
Stamp or write on 'thank you' to the cards.
