Be Thankful Blog Hop :)

If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop start HERE!

Hello Friends! This is my first blog hop, I am so excited! This hop is all about Thankfullness! It is the time of year were we all take the time to reflect on the things we are Thankful for. Before I go on to my project I would just like to share a few things that I am Thankful for!

Family, with out them I would not be the person I am today, I am so glad for there help and encouragment.

Faith, honestly for awhile I questioned Faith, I know terrible. My family has been through a horrific, terrible, stressful year and half. I won't get into detail but it strenghtened my Faith tremendously!

and last but not least Friends! I have made alot of friends since starting my crafting venture and they are all fantastic and I don't know what I would do with out them! ;)

Now on to my project, I thought this would be perfect for a place setting at each persons dinner plate. Gather up everyones Thankful card and put them away, do this every year, years from now it will be great to look back and see how things change. This is also a great way to have everyones handwriting and keep for years!



Recipe for Thankful Card:

6x5 chipboard (cover with paper)

First layer 5x4

Last layer (with text) 4 3/4 x 3 3/4

(Use corner rounder on all pieces)

Add twine


Pillow Box Place Card Treat

2x3 Pillow Box

2 x 1 1/2 Strip paper

Acorn & Leaves (from Create a Critter) cut at 1 1/2

Fill Box with crinkle paper and candy (I used Hersheys Kisses)

add paper strip, Ribbon, Leaves...stamp acorn with sentiment ( I used Bountiful Blessing by Pink Cricut) Use pop dot on acorn and add to pillow box. Write names on the pillow box treats and place them on the dinner plates along with Thankful cards.
