{Freebie} Your very own Goodbye Letter from the Elf on the Shelf

If your children are anything like mine...they do not want to see their elf on the shelf go! While Mom and Dad have been having just as much fun with the elf as the kiddos...it is a charade that is interesting to keep up! Like other people...I too forgot to move the elf....dashing in the night at 5am...breaking toes on Lego blocks. lol...all in a mad rage to get the elf in position before the kids wake. Sometimes he did fun things...sometimes he simply hung around. While he was fun...and sometimes a pain...no value can be placed on the smiles his hide and seek games brought to my children's faces. Priceless. They believe the whole thing at 8 and 7....that magic does not last long...soon enough there will be no believing in elves,Santa and fairies. Until then...we will continue to cherish each any every moment of our elf game...because time is nothing...and our children are only little once.

With this year almost in the Santa bag...I brainstormed on ways for our elf to say goodbye. I am sure he is going to go out with a bang the last night...but I wanted to create a letter that the elf could leave the children...explaining why he was going, that he had fun and would come back. :) We are sharing our letter with everyone. We hope that it brings a smile to your children's faces when they read it Christmas morning. We have yet to see a free printable of this...so we hope you enjoy our letter from the desk of the elf on the shelf! Scroll to the bottom for download instructions.

Our letters were design to print as 5x7 keepsake cards. They are best printed on heavy cardstock 100lb+ on the highest quality setting. You can still print them on paper if you desire.
 
If printing at home: Be sure to print on your printers highest quality setting. Use heavy bright white cardstock. If possible use a paper cutter, a sharp pair of scissors and steady hand will also work. (Optional) For the corners you can cut by hand, or you can use a paper corner rounder (available at Micheal's craft etc fiskars brand or Martha Stewarts).

If printing at a copy center: Ask to have printed on full color on heavy cardstock from 100lb-110lb or to render commercial results. (Kinkos, UPS Store and staples etc) offer very reasonable rates.
Sometimes cheaper than your printer can create. They can also laser cut for a nominal fee.
