Dried Orange Slice ‘Thank You’ Card

Call me old fashioned, but I like to make traditional ‘Thank You’ cards. This Christmas (back in Jan I promise), I decided to recycle the drawer full of dried orange segments I had leftover, by making pendant-style dried orange slice Thank You cards.

Not only do they look great, but they also (providing your orange was fresh) smell fantastic, and help bring Christmas into the New Year seamlessly on your dresser. You can also recreate these cards at any time of the year!

To make the cards, I threaded a length of twine through individual dried orange segments. I then folded A5 plain card in half, as you would to make a traditional card. From here, all you need to do is cut two slots into the front of the card with a craft knife for your thread to go through, and tie your charm on accordingly on the inside – voila!

If you use the orange charms as Christmas decorations in your home, all you need to do post-Christmas is take down your decorations, and instead of storing them in the loft, tie them straight onto your prepped Thank You cards!
