Kids Craft Christmas Thank you cards to make

With Christmas all done and dusted and hopefully nearly all put away, its time to start thinking about thanking your nearest and dearest for their wonderful gifts even if they are a pair of socks!

 Looking for inspiration online i found this cool article below. I tried my best to do footprint Rudolph cards off my little one to my family this year, which didn’t exactly work out (i might give you a post on that in the future) little tip…practice lots before applying brown paint to a 1 year olds feet and be prepared! But with hope still in my heart i found this article for thank you cards and i just love that it ties in with the footprint theme of the Christmas cards.

 Although if anyone does have any tips on controlling a 1 year olds feet, please let me know!

Article found at howaboutpinkplease
I would have loved to have sent a homemade card to each and every Aunts/Uncles/Grandparent that the boys received gifts from, but as I mentioned here, my boys refuse to sit down for more than 5 minutes to do any type of craft project with me.  It kills me!!!
So, the easiest solution is to make one card, photograph it, and mass produce that baby!
This year, I used a painted plate that I saw on pinterest via flickr as inspiration for our card.  The boys actually didn’t mind making this because they thought it was fun having their feet painted.
I used scrap fabric for Rudolph’s scarf, cotton for Santa’s beard, and sticky googlie eyes for both sets of eyes.  I then had Ethan write the thank you note at the bottom of the card.
To convert the painting into a card, I first photographed the painting. After adjusting the color a bit on the computer, I right clicked on the image and “rotated it clockwise” twice, so that it was upside down.  (This step is needed so that when you print it, it comes out correctly.)
I then printed the card on 8.5 x 11″ cardstock.  When in the print screen, I chose 4×6 inch with only 1 card per sheet of paper.  I also made sure the box that said “Fit picture to Frame” was UNCHECKED.  When it was checked, it cut off part of the picture.
 Here is what our thank you cards ended up looking like:
Super easy, fast, and bound to bring a smile to the Grandmas’ faces.
I hope they like it!  It’s the best we can do.
