DIY "Give Thanks" Accordion Cards
Our church takes Thanksgiving dinners to people who cannot get out to be with family for the Holiday and our Children always make cards, and these cards turned out to be the best yet. Really fun and easy and look really nice.

We used paint and stickers to give our "Thanks" a special look. Great fro 3 yrs.- Elementary kids.

Cards for Shut-ins
2nd grade colored w/ markers & crayons & stickers

The cards arrived bended. Not folded in the right direction, undoing the fold and correct the direction is impossible. The card is basically ruined if I try that. Cheap, light, and soft cards that can't even stand up like the picture shown. Horrible product!

Paper was not as heavy as I would have liked so when I used glue and glitter the corners of the cards curled up so I had to block it after it dried.
I purchased these cards to place on the tables for an annual dinner celebration for Volunteers who take an hour each week and pray at our Adoration Chapel. We have no budget for table decorations and we have 250 volunteers so we set up about 30 tables each year. They look nice and convey how much we appreciate their devotion to keeping our little chapel staffed and open each year.

They weren't as flimsy as the other reviews made me think. They seem to be made out of a shiny cardstock. I used crayons on them, which turned out nice, but I'm sure ideally you would use permanent markers or something more like that because of the gloss on the paper.

Cute DIY cards
I bought these for my son's 3rd grade class to make. They were a HUGE hit! They loved the idea of making their own Thanksgiving day cards to their families. Everyone wrote one thing they were thankful for on each letter and colored them in. We tried to use markers at first but it kept rubbing off every where because the cards have a glossy finish to them (that's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5). It was interesting seeing all the different things and looks everyone came up with. It is a good quality paper that I believe will last. Really loved that it came with it's own envelopes (that the kids also decorated).

Great Kids Craft
Used these for our Thanksgiving dinner w/ all my friends & our children. Kept the kids busy & wasn't messy or involved like some other crafts could be. We had children aged 6 to 13 coloring the cards. Cards are made of a sturdy stock, so they aren't easily torn or anything. Very happy with this purchase, would buy again.

OK if the kids are really artistic
They were plain white paper that spelled out "Thanks". The kids had fun attaching stickers to them, but I did not think they looked at all good when they were done. It was just busy work. Usually the items I buy are easy to do and they look really good when done. These ones needed too much work to make them look done or good (IMHO)

The cards are a very cute idea, in theory. In practice they are not. Very bad quality, too flimsy, too unstable, they are shipped quite bent (even the envelopes are in bad shape!) and it's hard to paint on it. I'm disappointed b/c they are very unique & I was looking for something new & creative but unfortunately, the quality is not what I wanted.
