Thankful Hearts Thanksgiving Gift Set

This was a really fun project to make. It all started with the card and just went from there.
There is a special family I wanted to give a gift to for Thanksgiving and a couple of ideas came to me. The first was to bake them some yummy pumpkin cookies and include a recipe card with them so they can make them if they like them. (that's the one part of the gift missing since I haven't made the cookies yet) So thinking about what I could use for packaging I decided recycling would be good and cheap. I washed and removed the label of one of my daughter's empty formula cans and altered it of course cooridinating with the card.
Then I thought it would be neat if they could then reuse the can for their Thanksgiving, so I cut some scalloped rectangles with my long rectangle Nesties and stamped, Count Your Blessings and the little acorn. I thought if they wanted they could use the cards to have each family member write what they are thankful for and put them in the can and take them out next year to remember what they were thankful for the year before, and maybe they would do it as an annual tradition.
I am excited to give this gift set to them. I hope they enjoy it! Thanks for visiting, and I love to read your comments!
