Thanksgiving Tags Mini-book

Greetings, Friends.
{and hi Mom! }

When I printed the tags to use on my little cornucopia favors for Thanksgiving, I ended up with an extra sheet of tags. I knew two things: 1) I wanted to turn them into a little mini-book; and 2) if I didn't do it now it would never get done.


I created a simple little book using scraps I had on hand {I'm on a mission to use up a bunch of my supplies this holiday season!}. I left a space on each page for a 3"x 3" photo that I promise to print and slap onto these pages the week after Thanksgiving!


A little note to my family members: Yes, I will have my camera, you will smile, and you will like it. :o) {thank you}


We are so looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with my family next week. I always feel a bit melancholy after a family gathering, but I always look forward to uploading photos of happy faces afterwards. And now I'm kind of excited to add photos to this little mini.

It's always good to have something to look forward to.

Having seen your beautiful little mini album, I now want the tag set! And complete instructions to copy what you did exactly... and instructions for the cute little turkey in the background of that photo. I'd like to turn that turkey into napkin rings (made with toilet paper rolls, cause I'm cheap!). I don't have the energy to do your cornucopia favors, but I think I want to copycat the rest of your Thanksgiving... is that okay? ;-)

What a great idea! I'm grateful, too, for the chance to spend Thanksgiving with family (although a lot fewer this year), as well as the air/road trip! Enjoy!

Gail said...

Love it! So happy to read you've got Christmas tags all ready to go. I'll be sending you my email for a copy.

Melissa said...

What a wonderful idea for those extra tags - the mini-album turned out great! Now it will be so easy to go through the Thanksgiving photos & pick your favorites because they have a place to go right away where they can be enjoyed.

Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving - enjoy your family time.

Karen said...
