Mini Gratitude Book Favors

Do you guys remember when we did the mini composition book makeovers (see HERE)? We thought it’d be fun to do them again but this time with a Thanksgiving twist.

How cute would this be for a little thanksgiving favor?!

We used basic craft paper, but you could even use a paper bag. Black ribbon, and a rub-on transfer to create the look. Again, see HERE for full instructions.


I think it was Oprah that introduced me to the idea of writing down what I’m grateful for, but the hymn “Count your Many Blessings” has been a favorite since childhood. When we remember our blessings, it makes life easier don’t you think?

We really enjoy this holiday. Good job America, Thanksgiving is a great idea! :)

    Where did you get the black and white striped pencils. I have a gratitude & lemon dessert event in May that I would love to have these pencils for.

    Thanks for your reply. By the way, I love your site, stumbled across it on Pinterest. I started following you both.

    Thanks Shari! Unfortunately I got the pencils ages ago from target :( you may still want to look there or try paper source. Good luck!
