    All the other thank you notes shown here start with a common base; cutting a piece of cardstock down to your desired size and then folding that cardstock in half. Once you have completed this simple task, go on to create your favorite thank you note!

    Stitched Thank You Card:
    Step A: Using the scallop-edged scissors, cut out a rectangle of solid cardstock to fit on top of the front of the card, minus about ¼"” all around. Glue the rectangle to the front of the card.
    Step B: Cut out a heart from the decorative cardstock to fit the front of the card. Punch holes around the outside edge about 1/2"” apart.
    Step C: Cut a length of yarn and thread the needle with the yarn. Sew in and out of the holes twice around. Tie a knot behind the heart and tape the ends to the back. Use the adhesive foam discs to attach the heart to the front of the card.
    Step D: Use a marker to write Thank You on the front of the card and a message inside the card.
