For those of you who haven't heard...last week was a tad bit scary.
Our sweet seven year old Anton, was in a bicycle accident on his way to school and lacerated (tore) his liver.
After a day and a half in the PICU over at Children's Hospital, he was finally moved to a regular room, where he stayed for another several days.
Through it all, we SURE felt the love!!
So many sweet friends provided childcare (since no one under age 13 was allowed to visit), surprised us with meals, and gave tons of Legos, games, and toys to keep him busy.
So that's what Anton & I have been working on today...except he took all my cards.
Since no part of me wanted to gather the kids and head out to the store to buy more, I thought I'd look around the house and see what I could use from around here.
(Don't you love all this color?!)
I found these cute pool colored tags at Paper Source awhile back and thought they'd be the perfect base for my cards.
Grabbing my favorite striped washi tape (remember how I used them on my business cards?), I pulled it across one edge.
I had a hodgepodge of sticker letters...but not enough in any color for a full word. So instead of scrapping the project, I made it look intentional by combining the two.
Adding the ribbon through the silver eyelet was as simple as folding it in half, stringing it through to the back.
Then sliding the ribbon through the open loop...
...pulling it tight, arranging it so it looks just right.
And that's truly it! I wrote my thank you messages on the back of the tags and stuffed them into envelopes that just happened to fit great!
There ya have it...two second thank you notes...that look extra special.
