I am going to take a little break from Christmasy fun to share these Thanksgiving Fortune Cookie Favors. Courtney, one of my sponsors, asked me to create some Thanksgiving favors for her Thirty-One consultants. I remembered Martha Stewart's fun little fortune cookies she made for Valentine's Day and thought they would make a great little Thanksgiving note to send along with a little takeout box.
Using card stock and some Fall graphics, I typed out the message "I'm So 'Fortunate' To Know You" and used that as the little fortune inside.
2. After they dried I laid my fortune across the center face down.
3. I pulled two sides of the circle up so that the tops meet...
4. Using my two thumbs in the center, I bent the 1/2 circle in half again to form the fortune cookie shape.
I used raffia as a filler inside the takeout boxes and placed the fortune cookies on top.
Each box was tied off with a little, orange ribbon bow.turkey template is actually available on their site and I was able to edit it and customize the message. So fabulous!
-I like this idea so much especially for other occasions. How about having slips of paper for the whole family to write what they are thankful for and then putting them in little fortune cookies to open on Thanksgiving Day and read them around the table? You could plan ahead and ask family members to make theirs ahead of time. (A great idea for next year) :)
-Great favors or place cards for around the table too!
-Or what about using these for a fun little scavenger hunt in the little boxes? Perfect for a party, maybe even Christmas morning as clues to find hidden goodies, and of course Valentine's Day.
-How about a way to tell someone you love how special they are? A great "card" to send to someone far way like a college student or a loved one who just moved to a new place.
Hope you like this fun Thanksgiving idea and it's still packaging so it counts!
Thanksgiving Hugs & Blessings
I am so THANKFUL for each one of YOU!
