Today, we have been toying with the idea of making some crafty yet personal
THANK YOU’s… there’s nothing like showing those who care about you loads of appreciation by making your very own personal, handmade, one-of-a-kind thank you’s!

Pick a stencil shape… here we used bridal lace scraps that were shaped like  a flower- thank you viableux! 

Stencil on some cute paper and just add any color cardstock

Finish off with some ribbon and a personal note :)
