Flower Thank You Cards

Upon needing to send some thank you cards to some friends, I decided to make them.

I do have a set of greeting cards that I made about 6 years ago by drawing pictures on them from existing paintings, dishes around the house.  They will be in another post later.  However, I just wanted to make some different cards.

I had crocheted some flowers while visiting my daughter Mary in Washington, D.C.  They were still in the yarn basket.  So I used them to tie to the front of the card.  On the inside of the card at the bottom edge, I printed "Untie and enjoy the flower".

They turned out so lovely and I am excited to make more.

This photo shows the pretty color of this flower much better than the one below.

Left to right....Baby Blue/White Flower, Soft Teal Flower, Soft Yellow Flower.

I punched two very small holes in the center of the top of the card using an icepick, put the yarn through the front of the flower through one hole and back up through the front of the flower.  Then tied the two pieces in a bow.  Even though this little bit of yarn shows when the card is opened, it has a clean look.


  1. What a pretty card! I love that you invite the recipient to untie the flower and use it. My favorite is the teal -- lovely! Thanks for linking on Busy Monday!

  2. What a great idea for cards - I love that the recipient can untie and keep the flower!
