Washi Note Card Set

We are almost at the end of Chanukah, and my girls know what that means---Thank You Note time!  I am proud of the fact that my daughters are very diligent about writing thank you notes to the people who are kind enough to send them gifts.  All of our family live far away, so that means lots of parcels flying to and fro during the holidays.

Thank you notes are more fun to write when you have something cute to write on.  I made this set of note cards yesterday using some washi tape and Rustic Cream card stock and envelopes.  They were so quick to make--I didn't actually time myself, but I know I would have been able to enter this into the 10 Minute Craft Dash with no problems.

I made 6 cards exactly the same.  They are one layer--4 cards out of a single sheet of card stock.  The top is two rows of Washi Tapes that I picked up at Michaels.  Then I rounded the corners, attached a sentiment from PTI On the Farm stamped on the Lil Inkers Stitched Sentiment Flag, and flipped the card over and stamped a single snowflake from WPlus9 Folk Art Flurries.  Super quick.

Here is a front and back view.

I put a little Washi Tape and another snowflake on the matching envelopes.

My daughter really loved this set, and I do too.  It looks like it took way more work than it did.

I think I'll make some more of these, using different Washi Tapes.  It's a great way to use up some of my Washi Tape collection, and I think it would make a great gift, packaged up with a belly band or some ribbon.

Thanks for Visiting


  1. Joyce your washi tape cards turned out fabulously! I have that same set and it is so festive. Love your cards.

  2. Very cute! I am another firm believer in the "thank you" note and just might borrow this idea :)

  3. Kudos to your girls for writing thank you notes - I made my son do it growing up but once he left the house I wasn't there to make him do it!! :( The designs on that Washi tape are lovely - what beautiful CAS cards!

  4. The deer is a strip of washi tape? I LOVE IT!

  5. Joyce, I have that washi tape, too! I couldn't resist it :) These thank you cards turned out great!

  6. Oh these are so pretty! Love the red and white, very classy. Thanks for posting the recipe for the Toffee...that may be on my gift list for next year!

  7. The washi tape designs are so wonderful and work so well for your CAS thank you notes. Love the added patterns on the envelopes.

  8. Wow Joyce! This CAS set is amazing! Just perfect:)

  9. Just to clever...what a wonderful use of Washi tape! I need to add more to my small collection of 4 rolls. I can't wait to case this card, just amazing!
