This handy card making tutorial by Food52 offers a creative way to add some mystery and excitement when sending friends, family and loved ones well-wishes with a homemade scratch-card. The inside of the note reveals a message hidden behind a homemade scratch-off surface that readers must peel back in order to read the inscription.

Scratch cards are incredibly fun for consumers as they add an element of suspense as the user must carefully pick away at a surface to reveal what lies underneath. These homemade scratch card thank-you notes do the same by creating a scratch-off barrier with tape and metallic acrylic paint that forms a block big enough to cover up an inscription. Readers can use coins to peel off the paint and reveal the message hidden underneath the surface.
