Had enough of blah thank you cards? Then head on over to Merriment Design to see what Kathy has come up with! She's created these adorable thank you note-cards from a photograph of the Chicago Avenue Bridge. She's even created a template that you can use to make your very own cards. Now we love all things Chicago, and we think this is a great way to show your appreciation, but we've also come up with some other great ways to use this idea for your next event.
Note: we are not encouraging you to go graffiti up your beautiful city. However, many cities do have areas that are designated for urban art expression. (My home-town has a great wall for this . . . I'll definitely be creating some works of art for this project next time I visit!) So if you can't find the perfect words already on a bridge (like Kathy did), go grab a can of spray paint and create your own.
- Scribble out "You're Invited" for an art-themed kid's party
- If your town is famous for an area of graffiti, use different images for escort cards at your wedding
- Write the names of your guests on the wall and snap photos to use as place-settings for your next dinner party
- Put all the details of your next event on the wall and use the image as a post-card invitation. (Warning: be sure to paint over this when you're done or you may have party-crashers on your hands.)
