Make a Baby Shower Thank You Card

baby shower thank you cards

The baby shower thank you card is inevitable. I know that writing out the thank you notes is really one of the last things you want to do at this time. I mean, not out of disrespect to your guests, but at this stage of your pregnancy your back hurts, your uncomfortable, and you got a ton of other stuff on your mind. But you gotta do it. And your guests deserve it! Show em' how much you really appreciate it by making a super cute baby shower thank you card.

The basic premise here is to just attach a cute decorative paper to the front of the card, attach a ribbon, and done. Match your papers to your baby shower theme for added cute-ness. You could even save the gift wrapping paper from the shower and use it to make each different baby shower thank you card.

Step One: Choose a card stock. The easiest option would be plain white 65 lb. or thicker 8 1/2 by 11" card stock. You could also use a light pink or blue but do not go too dark or your guests will not be able to read the thank you message you write to them.

Step Two: Cut the card stock in half. I recommend using a good personal paper cutter to cut them. If you want to make it easier on yourself you could also have the card stock cut at a local print or copy shop to have it cut for you. Quick and inexpensive!

Step Three: Fold the card stock in half to form cards.

Step Four: Choose a decorative paper or use wrapping paper. You will want to also cut this paper to be the same dimensions as the front of your cards. Use a glue runner or glue stick to attach the decorative paper to the front of the cards.

Step Five: Attach ribbon. Cut a length of ribbon just slightly longer than the width of the baby shower thank you card. Use either craft glue or a glue runner to attach the ribbon across the front of the card. Now cut a separate piece and tie a small bow using the same ribbon. Glue this bow to the front of the card using craft glue or permanent glue runner. Snip off the extra ends of the bow so that the ribbon hanging down is even on both sides.

To go a little more elaborate...
Use two different decorative papers and layer them at the bottom of the baby shower thank you card. Cut one of the decorative papers to be reach about an inch and a half up the bottom front of the card. The second decorative paper should be cut about an inch from the bottom of the card. Turn the paper over and draw a straight line across the bottom edge using a ruler and pencil. Make the line parallel to the edge of the card about 1/2 an inch in. Use this line as a guideline to trim the bottom of the paper using decorative edged scissors. Attach both papers together layering one paper over the other.
