Before you get started on your thoughtful card, you’ll need to assemble a few supplies! Try using these helpful and decorative supplies.

Supplies You’ll Need –


How to Make your “Thank you” Notes

  1. Once you’ve gathered all of your supplies, start by cutting your card stock. We chose corresponding shades of blue, but you can choose whatever colors you’d like. Cut the darker shade of blue card stock into 4” x 4” squares and the lighter shade into 5” x 4.5” pieces. You can save yourself time by cutting all of your pieces of card stock at the very beginning.
  2. Next, take your craft stamp and craft ink and stamp your “Thank you” sentiment on each of the smaller pieces of card stock. Then take the stamped card stock and arranged it on the center of one of the lighter blue pieces of card stock. Use adhesive to adhere the two pieces of card stock together.
  3. Choose corresponding washi tape and add pieces to the edges of the stamped card stock. There’s no limitations here – just add different colored and textured pieces as you see fit.
  4. Finally, take your embellishments and add them to the note card. We chose gems and scattered them across the card differently for each card so they would all be unique.


Since the backside of each note card is blank, you can add a sweet saying or message if you choose. These simple cards are so easy to make, you can assemble as many as you’d like to give away for World Gratitude Day. Whether you choose to give them to your family members or closest friends, or give to strangers you pass on the street, you’re sure to make them smile. When you give your cards away, be sure to tell the recipients that this simple, kind gesture is in celebration of Gratitude Day. They may feel inclined to give thanks to someone in their life, and the cycle of sharing gratitude and kindness will continue on for others to enjoy.
