No Fuss Thank You Post Cards


Friends and family have been so generous with gifts for Trent's b'day, which he is very thankful for. But sometimes thank you cards don't get sent out because, well, it's like pulling teeth to get him to write in a card most of the time. I decided I didn't want to have this battle, so I came up with some fuss free thank you post cards.All Trent has to do is fill in the blanks. I know it's not as personal, but I think it's better than nothing at all. You might have seen these in some stores before, but I thought I would go really cheap and make my own on the computer. Hopefully, as he gets a bit older he won't mind writing in cards. We'll see!

I looked up post card measurements on usps.com and then printed and cut the cards accordingly.
The card says:"Dear__________________, I'm glad you came to my party. I hope you had fun. Thank you for the ____________________________. I really like it!
Your friend____________________."

I also stamped them with my SU! smiley face stamp in some bright primary colors to make them stand out a little more. These would be easy to customize for any theme or occasion using different stamps or stickers. Give 'em a try.

Great idea!! I love that these are postcard size to just pop in the mail, and the fill in the blank is perfect for a beginning writer.
