Last Minute Thanksgiving Favor Box.

Today is Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.
That means one more day to make a fun, quick, easy and practical Thanksgiving project!

What type of dinner do you have on this holiday? Fancy and formal with the best china or in front of the football game with paper plates and lots of cheering?

However you are celebrating, how about including a little favor box?

I created these little favor boxes using the December Count Down Sack file from the 

JGW Christmas on the Docket

Jodi has provided the instructions here.
The little bags go together very quickly and are the perfect size.

I printed the names of each of my guests on the computer and then added them to the front with foam pop dots.  Now I can use them as a place setting as well.  

Fun and Practical!

Each sack is filled with some Andes Mints and a little note of why I am grateful for them.
They are tied up with a bit of string to finish each bag. 

Today, while the pie's are baking and the turkey is thawing, grab some scrap paper (it doesn't take much, most of what I used was leftovers from another project) and make some favors for you dinner guests.

And no matter how you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Count Your Blessings

Fall is in the air and its time to get ready for one of my favorite holidays...Thanksgiving.
SVG Attics has a brand new, wonderful kit available

This is a beautiful set of cards, but I especially love the Vinyl Art and couldn't wait to use it!

I had the perfect metal tray to place the vinyl on.

Add to the sign, some  leaves cut from the Rocker Hat Card.
Crinkle the leaves and ink them up before adding  to the sign.

I love how the leaves, and the sign blend in perfect with my Fall wreath.  

And here is a close up of just the sign with leaves.

What a great project. 
Come on over to SVG Attic and find the perfect fall project!
