After cutting them all I folded them in half and dry embossed them. Also you will want to ink them at this stage too. Ink on the inside fold.
Next you will start gluing them together by stacking them.
Here's what it will look like after they are all stacked and spread out. I also wrapped hemp around a paper clip to use to hold a special little surprise.
Want to know what that special little surprise is??? It's a little mini to record what I am thankful for for many years! It will hold the years 2011 to 2019! I love that I can write what I am thankful for on each Thanksgiving! I'm starting with last year because it was a special year in that a son of mine came home for the first time in years and had Thanksgiving dinner with us. I took a tag from Plantin Schoolbook and welded them together. I put it on my matt diagonally because I wanted an extra tag and that was the only way to fit it on a 12x12 piece of cardstock.
I also cut two more sizes of tags not welded together for my layers. I took some old Creative Memoires Sticker letters and put my years and title on each tag.
Here's what it looks like all done. My leaves on my curly cues are from My Creative Time dies. I think it will be cute sitting on my table. I am going to enjoy writing what I'm thankful for each year!!
So what can you make to show how grateful or who you are greatful for? Happy Craftin my friends!
