A Very Easy and Simple Way to Make a Homemade Thank-You Note

Last week I received this thank-you note from my mom for bringing cookies to Sunday Lunch.

By using stickers my mom made a custom homemade card in seconds! It may have taken her longer than that to pick out the stickers she wanted to use but putting them on the blank card literally only took seconds.

As you can see, she used the perfect sticker on the front of the card. The character is Emily Marmot from Suzy’s Zoo. I took cookies and Emily is holding a basket of baked muffins (not cookies, but close enough!)

Another interesting thing about her selection is in the Suzy’s Zoo world Emily has a twin brother. In real life, I have a twin brother, Brian, who is mentioned in the thank-you note.

The sticker on the inside of the card was also chosen just for me as I have six cats.

Making your own easy homemade thank-you note

All you need is blank cards and stickers. It’s a simple idea that can have a great impact. Choose appropriate stickers and you are all set!

The card pictured is from Hobby Lobby. The card stock quality is higher than it looks on the Hobby Lobby website. A great time to buy them is when they are 50% or with a 40% off coupon (which can be printed from their website if shopping at one of their stores near you). Or you can pick some up from Amazon (I can’t vouch for the quality as have not ordered from there myself).

You will also need stickers. Get some at Current Catalog.com (my mom has ordered from Current for more than 45 years!), Amazon, or any store that sells scrapbooking supplies (such as Hobby Lobby). Also, in many stores stickers can be found near the greeting cards.

Easy Homemade Cards

This is an easy and cheap way to make a custom card and faster than making them in other ways (such as using photos, stamps, or other materials). Other ways are great too, but I wanted to share the sticker method as it is fast and easy to accomplish.

  1. I have decided to keep my cards on the simple side just because I do scrapbooking and decided one expensive hobby is enough. I could spend lots of time doing the fancy or even simple cards but guess i have officially made the choice not to do that. Sometime I do make cards with photos on the front too, especially if the picture is of interest to the person I am sending the note to.
    Things like birds, flowers and lighthouses.

    • Hi Mom,

      You have made plenty of cards in your life! This is the first time I remember a sticker card, but maybe this was the first time I was really paying attention!
