Thankful Gift bag by designer Patty Folchert

Thanksgiving is my mother’s favorite holiday. So I try to help make it extra special by making her a small hostess gift each year. This cute burlap sack with some fun embellishments let’s someone know you are truly thankful for them. Using Jillibean Soup papers, embellishments and clear stamps you can recreate this project yourself.

First I chose three complementary papers to make the banner pieces, the ones I chose were from Summer Red Raspberry Soup and Soup Staples III. Next I stamped the “Thankful for You” sentiment onto the Wood Floor paper in brown ink. Then I stamped the heart square in brown ink directly onto the banner wood veneer. Using the brown ink pad I just rubbed the butterfly across to color it.

Then I added stitching to the biggest banner piece and the sentiment banner piece. Next I layered them all together with adhesive and 3D foam dots as shown. Last I added a lovely glass style button from a Ephemera Pack, using yellow embroidery floss to thread it.

There it is, a sweet way to show your thankfulness this fall season.

Share the Blessings,
Patty Folchert
