The pockets were handed out and I asked each person to do two things: 1) on the tag they had to write what they were thankful for; 2) on the index card they were to write down their Christmas wish list! Here's what I ended up with...
Everyone was very excited to do this! Adding the card for the Christmas wish list was a last minute idea. I figured I better get those while I had everyone together! A couple of them weren't complete. My mom wrote "Whatever!" and my dad wrote "Lots of Hugs" which I thought was so cute!
So this past weekend I created the memory book to hold everyone's "Thankful" tags.
The book is an Accu-cut design cut from chipboard. I used Bo-Bunny Apple Cider and Double Dots papers along with matching stickers and chipboard die cuts. I added die cut TH Sizzix Mini Tattered Leaves and an Idea-ology Muse token to the cover. The stamps are Unity. The tags were put into TH Idea-ology Kraft Glassine pockets. I cut off the top flap and punched a half-circle notch using a circle punch. I still have to add the pictures but I'm really pleased with how it turned out! Everyone was interested to see what we were all thankful for. I promised to bring the finished book to our next get together. That will be week after next since all of our birthdays are between October and December!
I'm entering this at Frilly and Funkie where the challenge is Chipboard and Metal. I'm also entering this at Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is Thank You.
