Counting My Blessings Bag for Thanksgiving

Gift bags can be pretty expensive. Instead of purchasing them at the store, make your own DIY gift bags when you follow the Counting My Blessings Bag for Thanksgiving tutorial. This awesome Thanksgiving craft idea works for any fall occasion. Give gifts to guests at your Thanksgiving meal, or use this bag for birthday presents. The project comes together beautifully, and the recipient is sure to appreciate the gorgeous bag as much as the gift inside it!

2. Next, switch out the Permanent Strips for the Repositionable Dots. This allows you to get full adhesive coverage on the small heart border cuts, while still being able to place them perfectly straight (or re-position, if you make a mistake!)

3. The last step was to add the Leaf die cuts – layer them so they have a lot of dimension. To achieve this look, use the Crafty Foam Tape.

What a festive little gift bag. I can see making up leftovers after Thanksgiving dinner and placing them in disposable containers and giving them away to guests in this cute little bag. What a wonderful way to make people feel loved this holiday. I know I would feel awesome if someone sent me home with some leftovers in this bag.
