Make Your Own Photo Wedding Thank You Cards
Photo wedding thank you cards are a perfectly unique and personalized way to send a big "Thanks" to your wedding guests.
Show them you really care by lending your own personal touch. Make the thank you cards yourself!
Create thank you cards that are crafty and handmade by putting together scrapbook style cards, or use a photo editor or digital scrapbooking to design your own printed glossy photo thank you worthy of a frame.
You can make your own wedding thank you cards that are simple to make as well as affordable. I want to share a couple of my DIY ideas for photo wedding thank you cards.
Make Handmade Scrapbook Photo Wedding Thank You Cards
Photo Wedding Thank You Cards Supplies:
To create small folded cards all you have to do is cut a sheet of the cardstock in half, score it across the middle, and fold it in half. Viola! A handmade folded card!
Would you like a printed card? Say, with the "thank you" printed within the inside of the card? No problem! We have free printable templates to help you do just that! Simply type in the wording and then follow the instructions above. :-)
Use some glue (my favorite is glue runner adhesive) to affix the paper to the front of the card.
Use a heavy duty large paper punch to punch a hole into the upper right hand side of the card (or wherever else on the card floats your boat).
I used an oval paper punch, but you could use any shape you want. From circles and squares, to decorative shapes like leaves and scallop circles! Get as creative as you please!
Choose a photo form the wedding, or you could even choose a different photo for each card featuring the guests you are sending the card to. A lot of work I know, but a very thoughtful gesture!
Use some glue or photo corners to attach the photo to the inside of the card. Make sure the photo is arranged so that when you shut the card the photo shows through!
After attaching the ribbon snip the edges that over hang the edges of the card. Tie a little bow using the same ribbon and glue that right over the ribbon attached to the card.
Tips To Make Photo Wedding Thank You Cards:
I took a much larger picture and cropped it down and took out most of the background "noise" so that the picture only shows my husband and I having our first kiss as Man and Wife. I then set it up to print several times to one page. I cut them out individually to attach to each card.
