Thoughts For Thursday: Gratitude - Day Fifteen & Artwork

Today is day #15 for me on this journey. I have been keeping track of my daily gratitude and compiling it on my computer. I am having way too much fun thinking about my blessings... and it's hard to choose just one per day to write down. Here's where we're at today:

Tonight I am going to visit some ladies for church and I am bringing them a fun little gift. Years ago when I was with CTMH, I received one of these in a swap or a buy in or something, I don't remember. I liked them so much that I made hordes of the little guys to give to friends here and there. They are SUPER simple and inexpensive to make.

Materials Needed:
Blank notepads (3x5x3/8") - I picked mine up in 6 packs at WalMart
12x12 paper cut into 3"x 10 3/8" strips
Coordinating cardstock for embellishing
Coordinating ribbon
Stamps - I used "Give Thanks" from CTMH & Watercolor pencils.

Decorate and embellish the front as desired and tie a ribbon around the flap... easy schmeasy and you have a cute little gift for a friend. :)

I'm so proud of you for following through on this project. I really like the notepads, too. I'm sure your ladies will love them.

Have fun with your friends!
