    Love these! I am a big fan of snail mail and send a lot of cards throughout the year. The hearts are such a sweet touch!

    There is nothing like a handmade card. These are lovely, Alex. Thanks so much for being a part of The Thankful Edition!

    I think the salt dough hearts add just that little extra touch that makes a heartfelt handwritten thank you that much more special. What a great craft to do with kids! And I love the bunny one too!

    These are just beautiful – I love how the hearts came out!! I like the combo of the twine and yarn, a little bit rustic with a touch of color. I’m really not crafty, but I think my daughter and I could handle this 🙂

    Totally adorable. They would make awfully cute gift tags too. And you could stick some rhinestones in there for your glitter-loving friends.

    I am in awe, of not just your crafting skills, but your time management. Where are you finding the time for this magic? I’m actually serious. I want to do a DIY holiday craft post (because, I mentioned holiday DIY once and now am getting mad searches (12) for it.)

    But, I do not even have children and am finding getting my act together to just do something simple and take photos is overwhelming.

    I just love a handmade card! What makes this so appealing to me is YES, it’s pretty, YES, it’s sweet… but I don’t have to throw it away ( I hate throwing away cards… I feel guilty!) Take that little heart off and hang it on your X-Mas tree or on your bulletin board or somewhere in your house or office that you could see it and remember not only the thoughtfulness, and the fun you had (watching the kids), but that being THANKFUL is something we should do every single day.

    The options are endless with this idea. We should all be sending you one. Thanks, Alex!

    These are just divine (as usual) – I love them! I’ve made ornaments using microwave paper clay which look similar but end up being obscenely expensive due to the price of the FIMO, so I will be trying these next time – thank you! The whiteness of them is beautiful and festive, and so hard to replicate with regular salt dough recipes. I have to say though that I enjoyed reading the comments almost as much – the insight into your life is hilarious and lovely… am now off to set up a photography studio on my own fridge-freezer… x

    This is great idea! Love it! Can’t wait to make the Thank you Cards. But where did you get the plain cards?

    These are terrific! We are waiting for the them to finish drying an extra day and then the kids are going to personalize them and give them out as thank you gifts for their Christmas presents. (:
