DIY Star Wars Rebels Thank You Cards
Ahh, I cannot believe my first born is 7 years old! Every time July rolls around I dread it because I know he’s going to be one year older. I know many parents can relate! We wanted to give him a special Star Wars Rebels theme birthday. He loves the Star Wars Rebels TV series so we knew it would be perfect! We wanted to give our guests a special thank you card for coming to the party but we didn’t want to spend a ton of money on pricey personalized thank you cards sooo I created my own! This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated here are my own.

We started off with a mini photo shoot with our son posing in his best Star Wars Rebels pose. I wanted to make the thank you cards more personalized. He put on some active clothing that would fit in with the Rebels. We had him hold a stick as a “pretend” lightsaber to get the perfect pose.

We got creative and used an American Greeting Star Wars Rebels table cover as a backdrop. It will make the perfect background for pictures of our party guests too! We’ll have pretend lightsabers for them to pose with. I love the vibrant colors and the Star Wars logo. After we edited the pictures, I went to PicMonkey to create my Thank You card template. I use PicMonkey for almost all my editing. I did a simple template because I wanted the picture to be the center of attention.

As you can see, very simple! I created it as a 5×7 print size. I opened the image I wanted to use and adjusted it to fit within the white space. That’s it! I used cardstock to print the thank you cards.

Now to create the mini lightsabers, you’ll need mini glow sticks, electrical tape, and glue dots (found in the craft area). I cut small piece of electrical tape and placed them on the ends of the glow stick. I activated my glow stick so you can see what it looks like.

Once you’ve covered the ends of the glow sticks, place two glue dots on the button and top of the stick to adhere to your thank you card. You going to place it where your child is holding the “pretend” lightsaber in the photo.

My son loved the thank you cards! I know my family and friends will love the picture of him. The kids will love playing with their very own “light-saber”! My kids had a blast playing with those glow sticks. Aren’t they fun?

    WOW!! You really kick parties up a notch! I swear, the art of thank you card etiquette is soooo going by the wayside. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten one other than for a wedding gift in YEARS. Good for you — thoughtful, clever, and so fun!
