We’re still at the stage with Harper where we have to remind her to say “please” and “thank you” from time to time. So after receiving a lovely bunch of Christmas gifts, we wanted to make sure we got our thank you cards out without delay. Because Harper loves glitter, and because she had enjoyed making some glittery Christmas tree decorations, we decided to have one more go using the sparkly stuff for this really simple craft project.
You Will Need:
- Blank card and envelope
- Sticky-backed plastic
- Glitter and sequins
- Double-sided tape
- Cut two pieces of sticky-backed plastic slightly smaller than the front of your card. Peel the backing off and face the plastic sticky side up. Cover with glitter and sequins. Peel the backing off the other piece of plastic and stick on top. Seal each of the sides with sellotape.
2. On the front of the card write your phrase. We went for ‘merci’ as Harper is learning a bit of French, and quite frankly it’s fewer letters to cut out than ‘thank you’! Use scissors or a craft knife to cut the phrase out.
3. On one side of the glitter pouch, stick double-sided tape along each side. Peel it off and stick it into the inside of the card on the back of the front panel.
4. Rub out any pencil marks on the front of the card and add a little bit of double-sided tape to the underside of the letters to stick them down.
That’s it! Now if only I could be organised enough to buy stamps and actually post the cards before Easter!
