Now for this month's theme: Thankful


For this month's theme, I made little gift bags for thank you treats. These little bags can be filled with small candies, no-light candle melts, gift cards, etc. What a nice gesture for the hostess at the next party you attend.


The kraft die cut at the top is the Thanksgiving Place Cards from Samantha Walker in the Silhouette store. The leaves are the freebie available at the end of this hop. I also used the Samantha Walker Buntings and Banners clear stamps from JustRite for the "Many Thanks" stamp at the bottom of the bags.


The red chevron is a simple glassine bag you can buy almost anywhere, add a doily once you fold over the top and tie with twine. 

Your next stop on the hop is Jamie Cripps... Click on the image below to keep on hopping!


Thanks for hopping along with us this month!

Thanks for being part of the hop.
Really nice project!!
I didn't have those place cards, but I do now.
I have a bunch of place cards and now I can have other uses.
