Tuesday Tutorial {thank you notes-book DIY}

are you a reluctant thanker?
maybe this DIY will cure any "forgetfulness"...
this is easy, useful, and pretty!

1. manila folder 
2. scissors
3. scrapbook paper 
4. adhesive (glue stick or tape runner)
5. 6X9 mini clipboard

take your manila folder and fold it in half. i used a used one -upcycle!

 close it how it normally closes while it is folded in half

cut or slice the right side off to fit your clipboard

use adhesive to cover the outside with scrapbook paper and cut to fit

add your thank you cards, stamps, and what have you

place it in your clipboard
and now your "good to go"...  for reals!
put it in your purse and write thank you notes while 
sitting at gymnastics, swim lessons, doctor's office... etc.

i have all my contacts in my phone so i'm all set.

now address your cards, and mail them off :)

happy crafting!
