Printable Thankful Cards and Decorative Basket

A few blogger friends and I are participating in a Dollar Bin Challenge today! We got together and picked an item from Target’s Dollar Spot and today we’re all posting our own craft projects using the white, plastic baskets we found. For my project, I decided to decorate the basket to use for my Thanksgiving Thankful Cards. If you’re not familiar with how thankful cards work, you print them out before Thanksgiving dinner and have your family write a few things that they are thankful for. Then after dinner, one person will read them to the family. You can also pass around the basket and have everyone pull one out to read too.

Okay, let’s get started! I started by painting my basket a light gold color. I used Antique Gold by FolkArt.

Next I used my Sizzix Big Shot and die cut flowers with the Sizzix Sizzlits Die – Holiday Greenery.

I then glued on the flowers using basic craft glue.

I wanted to add a small sign with instructions to my basket, so that I didn’t need to sit next to it during Thanksgiving explaining to everyone what needs to be done! So I painted a clothespin using Copper by FolkArt.

While the clothespin was drying, I printed out my Thankful Cards and my Instructions Sign, then added some extra flowers to the sign.
