Hello, Amy from The Happy Scraps here today, and I’m excited to be sharing this Thanksgiving Host Gift with you. I don’t know about you, but when I think about all the work that goes into hosting Thanksgiving at your home, I think about just how much work it really is! I thought it would be fun to put together a little Thank you kind of gift to give to the host. It doesn’t have to be anything big, but enough to let them know that you are thinking about them and grateful for all the work they put into having a great Thanksgiving dinner at their home.
When I was thinking about the project I was creating for this gift, I knew that the Harvest Collection would be the perfect collection for this. I grabbed just a few supplies and got started.
Since I was using the 1-2-3 Punch Board, I followed the instruction on the board to create a 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ box envelope. I pulled out a piece of Fall Time paper from the Harvest 6″ x 6″ paper pad and trimmed it to be 5 1/2″ square.
Then I followed the directions on the punch board to know where to score and punch the paper.
Once I was done on the punch board, this is what my 5 1/2″ square piece of paper looked like.
I folded on all the score lines, and then grabbed my Sticky Thumb Two Way Glue. I applied adhesive on the inside of the bottom flap.
This is what my envelope looked like once the glue was dry. This is when you can put a fun gift card and some shredded paper in the envelope. Wouldn’t a gift card for a pedicure or massage be a great way to thank the host?
I cut a 1″ x 9.5″ strip of the Harvest Hand Towel cardstock to create a band around the envelope.
I scored the strip of paper where the folds needed to be, and then used an adhesive dot to attach the ends of it together on the back. I didn’t attach this to my envelope at all, it’s just a band that can slide on or off.
Once it was turned over, this is what it looked like. This band is what keeps the envelope closed. Now you are ready to embellish your envelope and the Harvest Flour Sack Fabric Stickers are perfect for this.
I chose the Thank You So Much sentiment. I attached it to the front of my envelope band, and then added a couple of Harvest Enamel Dots to the bottom corner. I tied a ribbon around the band and I was all finished.
The best part about this project is it will let the Thanksgiving host know that you are thinking about and appreciate them, and it doesn’t take long at all to make one of these cute envelopes.
Do you have plans to leave home for Thanksgiving or are you the host this year?
