So I have to ask, besides the menu planning, grocery shopping, food prepping, and house cleaning, are there any other Thanksgiving projects you tackle in preparation for the big day?

Last year, in preparation for Thanksgiving, I decided to make customized place cards / gratitude cards that would be combined into a Thank You & Hostess gift for my mother-in-law.

Using various Tim Holtz Distress Inks (products listed below), blending tools and stamps, I created these adorable tags, and even went as far as to customize each one with every guests’ name. As family members saw the tags and commented on them, I asked them to write out a note of gratitude to our amazing and lovely hostess. I was so happy everyone lovingly embraced the opportunity to share their thoughts and we even read our notes aloud ❤

In preparation for a class I was teaching the day after our return from our Thanksgiving holiday, I had taken a bin of crafting supplies to work on while visiting for the week. In the bin, I had packed the supplies needed to make these tags. It really would be easy to travel with, even on an airplane!

Thanksgiving / Gratitude Tags {Feeling Crafty}

Connie Hanks // ClickyChickCreates.com // Thanksgiving tagsI know, I know, Halloween candy is still in the house, decorations are still up, costumes are strewn around, everyone’s on a sugar overload, and here I am blogging about Thanksgiving! I just had to share these cute “Beautiful Abundance” tags I came up with for Thanksgiving…

Last year I made these “Thankful” tags and added them to goodie bags of treats I shared with friends from church. I also added them to the pumpkin pies I baked for our local firehouse. That tradition started years ago and I was even published in Real Simple Magazine sharing our pie tradition!

For the tags I just made, I thought it would be nice to add a space to add a note about what we’re thankful for this year. These will make great placecards for our Thanksgiving table! Also, I love adding hidden journaling to my scrapbook pages, and sometimes will write on the back of a tag, like I did here. These would fit the bill nicely for hidden journaling for a fall or Thanksgiving layout!
