Thanksgiving – Team Stamp It Blog Hop

header

Hello there and welcome back for the Stamp It Group’s blog hop ~ Thanksgiving!

Today I’m sharing my non traditional Thanksgiving card and blessing mix.  The blessing mix is something that I make each year to give to family, friends, and neighbors.  This year I made a little box that is very quick and easy.  This little box is perfect for any occasion even classroom gifts if you have elementary aged kids.

POEM

Blessing Mix

The Bugles are a symbol of the Cornucopia,

a horn of plenty.

The Pretzels represent arms folded in

Thanks & Prayer.

The Candy Corn reminds us that during the

first winter, the pilgrims were allowed only

five kernels of corn per day because the

food was scarce.

The Fruit is a reminder that Thanksgiving is

the celebration of the harvest.

The Peanuts represent seeds, the potential of

the bounteous harvest of the next season if

they are planted & well-tended.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut Rich Razzleberry cardstock measuring 5” x 8-1/2”.
  2. Cut Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP measuring 2” x 9”

  1. Very creative and love the little box. Just goes to show that you don’t necessarily need to be traditional for the holidays. A great “out of the box” idea!
