thank you cards

thank you cards
Set of six cards, cardstock.

Nothing too fancy, but this was fun to play around with weaving the strips and cutting the slits. Some designs are much better than others. I would have experimented a bit more, but am currently out of the black cardstock.  Glue job done rather messily, so a definite overall handmade vibe to this.

Keeping with the same general style of card, a good idea would be changing color combination, angle, length, width, pattern, other sorts of material (ribbon, strings, yarn/thread. magazine bits, newspaper… anything flat-ish!).  And ooh, some of those shiny jewels would not go amiss.

    I think these look great. There is something about handmade cards that is so much nicer to receive than the hallmark variety! I think my favorite one is the front one or the one directly behind that. It kind of reminds me of weaving paper placemats that we used to make in elementary school.

    Awesome idea! I have a few people that are in need of thanking and it looks like a cheap way to use up paper scraps!
