How to make Thanksgiving greeting cards

Now that you’ve seen all the coloring pages we have to offer, let’s explore how to turn them into heartfelt Thanksgiving greeting cards. There are several ways you can do this:

  1. Print four per page and cut into A6-size greeting crds
  2. Print foldable designs on A4 cardstock and fold in two.
  3. Print foldable designs on regular A4, cut them in half, and glue them onto cardstock.
  4. Print foldable designs on regular A4 and fold them in two.

I personally find that using cardstock gives the cards a more authentic feel, but if you’re just looking for a fun activity, regular A4 paper works just fine.

Below, I’ve detailed how you can make Thanksgiving cards using these methods.

Our recommended Thanksgiving card options

1. Print four per page and cut

First, choose your favorite coloring page or download them all. Before printing, ensure your printer is set to print four pages per sheet and that you have cardstock paper loaded.

Printer settings vary, but generally, you’ll go to “Pages per Sheet” or “Multiple Pages” and choose “4” from the dropdown menu. If this doesn’t apply to your printer, a quick online search should provide the instructions you need.

Then all you need to do is trim your greeting cards, color them in, and you’r all set!

2. Print our foldable design on A4 cardstock and fold it in two

Alternatively, download our foldable coloring pages. They’re A4 landscape files designed with the coloring page on one half so that when you fold it, you have a lovely greeting card.

Check your printer’s compatibility with cardstock. If it’s a no-go, the next option might suit you better.

Do you just want one greeting card? You can choose to print just one or multiple pages from our file through your printer settings.

3. Print them on regular paper, cut and glue on cardstock paper

If your printer can’t handle cardstock, this method might work better for you.

Simply print the foldable coloring pages on regular A4 paper, cut them in half, and glue them onto folded cardstock to create a sturdy greeting card.

4. Print our foldable design on regular A4 paper and fold in two

Lastly, if you’re looking for a quick and simple DIY card, this is the best choice. No need for cardstock or special adjustments, just download the foldable design, print, color, and fold, and you’re good to go.

They may not be as polished as cardstock cards, but for a fun activity, they’re perfect.

Funny Thanksgiving messages

Planning to use your cards or coloring pages for a more personal touch? Adding a funny Thanksgiving message is a great way to bring smiles and laughter to your friends and family.

Whether you’re sending out cards or just want to add a fun element to your coloring pages, here are some of our favorite quotes and messages to consider.

  • “Happy sweatpants day!”
  • “Calories don’t count on Thanksgiving.”
  •  “Time to call your mom and ask how long it will take to roast the turkey.”
  • “It’s a turkey-eating and football-watching kind of day.”
  • “Hoping this holiday is more blessed than stressed. Happy Thanksgiving!”
