DIY: Postcard Thank You Notes

Today’s my last post on S’s first birthday bash.  You might remember I mentioned doing a short photo shoot while we were at the park that day.  I saw this photo on pinterest and loved the idea of using the extra large balloons and a basket from home to mimic a hot air balloon.  



Of course, it ended up being pretty close to nap time when we finally got around to taking the pics so I didn’t have much setup time.  I’m also far from a professional photographer. Nevertheless, I thought the end result was pretty cute.


After adding the message “Thanks for making my day!”, I printed the photos 3 to a page on card stock.  Then it was just a matter of adding a hand-written message and a stamp to the back.   This was a super inexpensive project and a great way to send an extra special thank you to our guests.

I’ve started doing postcard thank yous, too. I develop the photos in 4×6 size with a fancy border around the edge (an option at our photo developing place), and they go nicely in the mail, even printed just as a photo.
