Final Card Trick--Make Quick Cards with Paper and Ribbon


Well, it's here.


My final card trick for awhile...
Plus you get to find out who these cards are going to.

(You're not going to believe how simple this card is--
I seem to say that every time, but it's true!)


I'm taking plain, blank, light blue cards and
transforming them with ribbon and paper...that's it.
ribbon and paper...well, a glue stick, too.



In a Word Document I printed,
"Thank You For the Meal!" in a pretty font
copied on document copy paper.

I left lots of room to cut the paper
so the greeting would be at the bottom of the card.
I glued my printed greeting to a piece of turquoise card stock.
I glued the turquoise card stock to my light blue card.



I purchased this great printed ribbon awhile back.
It's from Creative Imaginations.
It's a lightweight twill ribbon that says,
"you are wonderful-you are the best-lucky me"



I tied the ribbon in a knot.

Quick, easy and personalized.

Now...I took all the cards I made from my previous posts,
(click here and here and here and here if you missed the posts,)
 and I put them in this colorful canvas bin I found at Target.



I lined the cards up according to their messages..
(Thank you--Hi, Hello--Thank You for the Meal--Blank--With Love)


 I made quick dividers with tag board.
 
I then wrapped the entire basket
with cellophane and added a cute tag.


and handed it to my mom!

Yep, my mom is going through chemotherapy for breast cancer.
She's going to be fine, but it's such a painful journey.  
Painful to go through and so painful to watch.

The one thing she asked for was lots and lots of thank you notes.
Meals, gifts, cards seem to arrive daily...and now she's ready to send out a quick thank you to all!

I love you, Mom!
