Thankful Leaf Tags

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks right?! So we also included these little leaf tags that have “I am thankful for…” printed on them. You can grab a pen or marker and fill in some sweet words about your package recipient.

After you have shared and written what you are most thankful for, you can either decide to sprinkle these into the Thanksgiving package or use them as gift tags. Simply attach the leaves to each item you are stuffing into the package by using a hole punch and some ribbon.

(Psst! These also work great in Thanksgiving gift baskets or a cute Thanksgiving door attack, so feel free to steal them for those ideas too!)
