Roll up your sleeves—it’s time to DIY! We’ve got an inventive spin on the classic party thank you card your child won’t moan about.

We all know it can be hard getting your child to sit down after the excitement of their birthday party and opening all the presents, so we thought this was a cute, fun project to get them involved and the end result is this lovely Thank You card that takes little time to create and will be well received by all!

Step 1: Take Photo

Take a photo of your child as she holds a closed fist towards the camera. Tell her to imagine she is holding up and showing you a lollipop. Take a shot from slightly above to get a good perspective. I used my DSLR, but your smartphone camera will work, too. Try a different pose. Have her hold her hand closer to her body.

A few things to keep in mind when you are taking the photo:

Background: Make sure the background is not too busy; leave blank space so that you can add text. A primarily light or dark background will make the text pop.
Space: Include enough space around her in order to add the cute greeting text.
Focus: Be sure to focus on her face and not her fist.

Step 2: Add Text

Email the photo to yourself, and open it in a text-editing app. I used Over; it makes adding text and fun heart doodles easy. Tip: Watch the placement of embellishments. Don’t place words or artwork too close to the edge of the photo to avoid printing mishaps.

Step 3. Order Prints or Cards

Upload your final image to Snapfish and order 4×6 prints or go for a sturdier 4×8 stationery invite. Ensure that the cropping placements are correct, and edit as necessary.

Step 4: Assemble Cards
