Count Your Blessing Box

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Well my friends......In 18 short days.....I will be climbing on board a plane to head back to Wisconsin to spend my first Thanksgiving with my family in over 6-years.  To say I'm excited is an understatement.  Thought this was the perfect opportunity for me to share with you a Thanksgiving Blessing Box that you can make.  Let's jump right in with today's share.....
These little blessing boxes come together in a flash........and are the perfect gift to give out during the Thanksgiving holidays to let someone know you are thinking of them.
The Blessing Box itself is simply a pouch type holder.......
That is decorated with a "Thanksgiving Poem".....
And a cute cute turkey on the opposite side.
Here's a close-up of my turkey.  He is made with the bird punch and some loops of ribbon.
Here's a side-view of my box........And as you can see.....it's filled with a blessing mix.
I added pretzels, bugles, peanuts, candy corn and orange slices to my mix.
This is the Thanksgiving poem that I put on the backside of each box.
Quick and Easy little gift.......and one of those that has lots of Thanksgiving meaning.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a darling little Scarecrow card with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Love the ribbon turkey. Love the eyelashes. Excellent idea for scrap ribbon. I'll have to add this one to my list. Yay! More projects...love it!
Love the embossing too! Is that an SU folder?
Great poem...I have not seen the poem before! O.K. I have another date with a Big Shot.
Thanks for sharing!!! Great project!

This is too cute, Kadie! Love the idea. Is the pouch hard to make? I'd love directions if you have them.

Thanks,
