Elise loved her 1st birthday gifts and wanted to say thanks in style! I designed pink monkey thank you cards with a ‘1st birthday’ bananas birthday party hat and yellow polka dots cards. Then I used pink and burgundy fine-point Sharpie markers to write on them.

How to make thank you cards for the pink monkey birthday party:
Using your paper cutter OR Xacto basic knife set, ruler and self-healing cutting mat, cut out your cards. Be sure to hold your ruler down tight and run the Xacto knife a couple times to make sure the edge is smooth.
Now here’s a tip to ensure your cards fold perfectly. Turn your Xacto knife upside down. Yep, upside down. Run the *back* of your knife gently down the middle along the ruler two or three times. Your goal is to just score the line, not cut through the paper, so be careful. Now you’ll be able to easily fold the card in half along a perfect seam. Bananas!
