Thoughtful Project Thursdays!!!

Happy Thoughtful Project Thursdays my crafty friends!!!I"m sad that this is the last week of my "Thoughtful project Thursdays" :0(.. I also wanted to say thank you for all your kind comments this past week.. If this is your first time visiting I am hosting a Thanksgiving segment on my blog called "Thoughtful Project Thursdays".. So, for 3 weeks (this is week 3) I will be sharing thoughtful projects with you and I may even have a little thank you giveaway for you.., I have a lot of thoughtful inspiration for you all today with two new super talented guest designers and a new thoughtful giveaway too.. I hope you will stop by my guest designers blogs and leave them some comment love :0)

Check out this gorgeous Thanksgiving Pillow Box !!! It's just prefect to
store some yummy thankful treats in and it was created
by the super talented Amber from the Staying Crafty blog ..

OMG, Rosy from the Sweet Delights Paper and More blog created this
absolutely stunning Give Thanks Banner and Tag for her daughters teacher!!!
What a lucky teacher, I would totally love to have that banner hanging in my house :0)..

Okay now here is my thoughtful project for this week..
I decided to make a Take Out Gift box with chocolates and paper fortune cookies
with thankful fortunes inside them.. For my fortunes I printed
"I'm thankful for" on them and I asked my son what he liked
about his teacher and I hand wrote what said on the fortunes..
Sorry, I didn't get the chance to make a video :0(

{Here's a photo tutorial on how I made my paper cookies..}
