Simple thank you cards using scraps

When I love a paper, sometimes it can be hard to throw out the scraps.
So instead of holding onto them, and then never using the scraps up.
I take the scrap pattern paper, and make simple thank you cards.
These all will only take one stamp to mail (love that).
To disguise the knot (green ribbon) I put a sheet of card stock over it, or a piece of foam.
That will prevent your envelope from tearing.
I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!!
