Scrap Busting Thank You Card!

I am a hoarder of anything card/ paper/ fabric like! I have 2 folders of scrap card

and a jar of wee bits of ribbon

that I can't bare to throw out!

So, in an effort to declutter, I decided to try and use them to make the thank you cards for little e's birthday pressies.

This is what I came up with

I made them like this:

Set up a word document custom paper size 9.5cm x 14cm

Type 'Thank You' in your chosen font, I used Gabriola.

Cut out the required number of pieces of card, 9.5cm x14cm, in a pale colour.

Print them out

Cut Coloured card to A6 size (10.5cm x 15cm)

Wrap a small piece of ribbon round the pale card (I stick it with double sided tape)

 Stick pale card to other card.

Now you can leave it like this or make a wee bow to attach to the ribbon!

Cute little scrap buster thank you cards, done!

Now to write them...


  1. Very cute way to use your scrap ribbon!

  3. That is an awesome idea. Do they fit in regular envelopes? New follower from Worldwide.:)

  4. Super cute!

    Just wanted to let you know that I nominated your adorable blog for the Liebster Blog Award!!



  5. That is adorable! I have been thinking of just getting rid of my small fabric and ribbon scraps, but this makes me think that wouldn't be such a good idea. I'll have to try this out!

  6. The ribbons finish the cards of nicely! Great little project...

  7. Shiloh, yep they fit in a normal A6 envelope!

  8. You seem very creative, you are like recycling unused ribbons. I like how you design your cards. Very unique and I really like what you have done.

  9. Purple is my favorite color, that's why I like this so much!

  10. I think the designs are so simple. But i still
    find elegance on it. The way it made is really impressive. Do you have other designs of the ribbon. They were so cute:)
