Thanks Giving: Gratitude Jar

I saw the idea for a gratitude jar in a magazine and adapted it for use at my Thanksgiving table.  I used an old blue Quick Seal glass canning jar that had belonged to my grandmother and made a large tag for it using Memory Box dies.

I stamped a stack of small tags using the Simple Wreath stamp D1949 and Hero Arts Forever Green ink.  I will place a few at each place setting with a pen so that everyone can write down the things they are thankful/grateful for before placing each completed tag in the jar.

Maybe this will be the beginning of a new tradition in my home.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!!

Happy Crafting!
