Homemade Thank You Cards

This is one of my favorite ways to do thank you cards for folks that have given the kids gifts.  It works for other cards as well, obviously.  We all have our kids' art lying around, so why not make it functional?  It's a very inexpensive and personal way to make cards.

Have your kiddos paint or draw on a blank piece of paper.  They could use stickers, stamps, glitter, or other crafty stuff.  My kids just stick to coloring and painting for now.

Fold the paper into a card.  Stamp or write "Thank You" on the front.

Alternatively, you could cut out a portion of the paper and glue it to some card stock.  Michael's has inexpensive card stock and many different sizes of blank envelopes.  I usually have my kids decorative the envelopes too.

 And that's it!
