Give Thanks Gift Bags / Thanksgiving ~ DRU

Hello friends ~  There's a new challenge starting up today over at the Dies R Us Challenge blog and the theme is "Give Thanks", so for today's project I made some hostess thank you bags.  I can tuck in some hand lotion and body wash, candy or some small gift as a way to say "thanks" for being you.
These were super simple since I started with pre-made brown paper gift sacks like the kind you used to find at Michael's or AC Moore.  I cut the bag down to half size using a pinked edge paper trimmer and adhered two brown gingham ribbon handles.  

I then added Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Pumpkin and Stitched Pumpkin Frame, also using the leaves and vines from the sets.  There are so many thank you dies in the store to choose from.  This one is an older, retired die from Poppystamps.  

What are some creative ways you can think of to say "thanks"?  What would you put in these little bags?  I'd love to hear your ideas!

I'll be adding this project to the following challenges:
Cut It Up ~ Thanksgiving Bags or Boxes

You can find all the details of this challenge and join in on the fun by clicking here.  You simply need to use at least one die from a brand that is carried in the store and  you could be the next winner of a DRU Gift Certificate!

I wanted to remind you that we have some exciting news to share with you.  Dies R Us now has opened a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts 


It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!  We'd love for you to visit by clicking on the links above or by clicking here.

Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Aren't you just the clever one, I love the idea of cutting the bags down, your pumpkins are just the cutest ever. I like the idea of having little pieces of paper with reasons why you are thankful the person is in your life :) along with some other little goodies of course :)
