thankfullness bag...

For this weeks Paper Craft Planet gratitude upload I took inspiration from the 40 plus "thankfullness bags" that I helped my boys classes make this week. This is such a cute project. This one is a bit fancier than the ones for school. I wasn't about to heat emboss and cut out all those oak leaves for that many bags. I'm not that nuts, LOL! Wouldn't this be a cute gift for your kids favorite teacher or loved one?

I stamped the leaf repeatedly on the paper pag in Versamark and embossed in white EP. I stamped two extra leaves, chalked them, cut them out and wrinkled them a bit to make them look realistic. I chalked some of the words to make them stand out.

Thankfulness Bag
Thank you for your loving care
And the kindess that you share,
For helping me to learn and grow,
And showing me all that you know,
That is why I just want to say,
"THANK YOU" In the biggest way!
