thank you cardsWhat on earth can you do with all the left over wrapping paper?  It takes you ages to wrap them and about 5 seconds for the kids to tear them apart.  If I’m honest we do burn a lot of it but I do hold a small selection back for crafting.

I’ve done this in the past for Birthdays but decided to do it again for Christmas as it’s incredibly easy.  I’m a bit of a stickler for Thank you cards as I feel it’s very important  but do find them taxing at times.

You will need

  • Selection of wrapping paper
  • PVA glue
  • Water
  • A4 paper
  • Prit Stick
  • Scissors
  • Wiggly Scissors (Pinking or Scalloped)
  • A4 Card – any colour will do.

How to:

  1. Tear the wrapping paper into piecesthank you cards
  2. Mix a bit of PVA glue and water
  3. Cover the A4 paper, the more random the better using the PVA GlueThank You cards
  4. Leave to dry
  5. Cut out a random selection of shapes.  We chose hearts as it as for Thank you cards, but you could be a bit more creative and cut out a big T and Y for Thank you.photo (24)
  6. Cut the A4 card in half and then fold to make A5 cards.
  7. Use the Prit Stick to Glue the shapes on the front of the cards
  8. You can use the wiggly scissors to cut the edges of the card.

Voila you’re done!

If you decide to have a go I’d love to see the results!  I’d also love more ideas for using up some of this paper.

I hope you’ve had a fabulous Christmas!
