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:
Print my free thank you card template on white cardstock paper, 2 cards per page. I can change the year and colors or add names for a nominal charge.
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!

I came across your site when I was searching for ideas for my daughters 1st years birthday party and wanted to tell you how darling the party looked! I have been wanting to do a monkey theme to and so when I saw yours, it sealed the deal. So thanks for the inspiration! Also I hope it's okay but I printed out your monkey template and used the monkey for part of her invitation. Hope that is okay! Thanks so much
