Say Thank You With Photos



Show your gratitude this holiday season with photos! Photo Thank You Cards are fun and easy to make. Before you know it, you will have a personal and creative thank you card ready for that special occasion. You’ll need a few things to get this simple project completed.

  • Magnetic Alphabet Letters
  • Digital Camera
  • Photo Printer
  • Cardstock in color of your choice
  • Glue stick (acid free) or photo corners

I happen to have been blessed with a photo printer thanks to the fine folks at HP. So this project was that much easier because I was able to print the photos at home. (If you don’t have a photo printer at home, then have them printed via your local 1 hour print shop. Many grocery stores have photo printing services available, so you can pick up your print when you are shopping.)

  • Arrange the magnetic letters to spell the words “Thank You”.
  • Photograph the words in good light near a window. Try not to use your flash
  • Print out the image on 4x6 photo paper, set aside
  • Cut  cardstock to 6 1/2 by 9
  • Fold cardstock in half to make a 6 1/2 x 4 1/2 folded card.
  • Adhere “Thank You” photo to front of card using photo corners or adhesive.
  • If cardstock is dark in color, think about lining the inside with a piece of white cardstock sized 4 x 6.

***I am including the “thank you” images in this post, so that you may use them if you wish. I put a creative commons liscense on them, so if you use them in a blog post, just attribute back to me. So, if you don’t have alphabet letters, you can just use mine!

This idea would work great for other occasions like birthdays and get well cards.
