UKS Christmas Blog Hop! - Thank you card

Christmas is a time of year where you give and receive lots of gifts and a little thank you is always appreciated. It is always a busy time of year so something simple and quick to make is always good!
Every year my local Paperchase shop sells little wooden table confetti - last year it was wooden trees and this year Stags and Trees - they cost £5.00 a box but they are full to the brim!
The trees were in three colours and stags in 5 colours.
With a few punches and coordinating cardstock I have made a selection of cards in minutes, and any left over (which there will be lots) the sentiment will change and I will start making next years Christmas cards!



Thanks for taking the time to look and can I take this time to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
Hugs Sarah x x x

Brilliant! So easy and they look good, what a great combination. It would work with other small wooden pieces and a different sentiment too. Thanks for sharing. Happy Christmas.

oooh i got the same wooden pieces from Hobbycraft (though the reindeer were the same colour as the trees!) great idea to use them for thank you cards

Virginia said...

Oh my I can't believe I've been past their shop today and not bought - must try!

Such a simple idea and right on trend for the nordic theme that is so popular this year. One to remember as they won't cost a fortune to post, I have some felt Christmas trees they did a couple of years back that would do the job too.
