A Sweet Way to Say Thank You

As our children grow there are people that touch their lives in lots of ways.  I have always felt strongly about making sure that my children show their gratitude to those that help them.  It doesn't have to be an expensive gift, sometimes a genuine thank you is enough.   I love to have my kids make cards.  I have found that the recipients love to receive them too.

Today, I am sharing a idea I found on Pinterest.  The idea originated from The Happy Scraps.  I have added my little touches to make it my own expression.  It's a sweet little way to say thank you.

Here is what I used:

Small clay pot
Yellow paper shred
#2 pencils
Card Stock
Foam brick
Two sided foam tape
Pretty ribbon
Glue dots
Green craft stick
Flower template from Best Paper Flowers
Thank you tag from Dimple Prints
Single hole punch

I used double side tape to attach the foam block to the inside of my pot.  Filled it with yellow paper shred.   Then used the template from Best Paper Flowers and cut them out of different colors of card stock.  After I cut them out, I used the hole punch to put a hole in the center of the flower.  I twisted the pencil back in forth until it went through the hole.  Then inserted them into the foam in the clay pot.  I printed off my thank you card from Dimple Prints.  Attached it with a glue dot to a green craft stick and inserted it into the foam.  For a extra touch I attached a ribbon around the rim with glue dots.  It was a simple project and a great way to teach my kids to show gratitude.

Have fun making this one!  Thank you to The Happy Scraps, Dimple Prints, and Best Paper Flowers for sharing your talents with others.
