DIY Thankful Board by Cherished Bliss - each day you write what you're thankful for in cute li'l envelopes!

Hello Everyone! I'm Ashley from over at Cherished Bliss! I am so super excited to be over here today sharing my Thankful Board!

I am a stay at home mom to two beautiful children, and wife to an amazing husband. We just recently moved across the country and so a new chapter of our life unfolds! I just started a "getting to know me" series, I'd love to have you stop by and take a peek into my life... You'll probably want to start with the "good" then head over to the bad, and later the ugly.... Yes, you get to see my dirty dishes!

This will be the first Thanksgiving without family so the hubs and I are trying to come up with some fun traditions to have with our kids during the holidays. This year I though it would be fun to focus on what we are thankful for so I created this Thankful Board.

I used Lifestyle Craft's pocket envelope die from their new Fall Core Collection. This really is such a fun collection!

I am so excited about this thankful board! The whole idea of the Thankful Board is that each day in November, up until Thanksgiving, the kids will tell me one thing they are thankful for. We will write it down and put it in the envelope for the day, then on Thanksgiving day we will sit down and read them all as a family... probably with some kind of food, there is always food around here : )

The envelope die even comes with a die cut for an insert so it's the perfect size for the envelope!

So here is how I made this fun little thankful board

First. cut out all your envelopes

Next. You will fold them up and glue along the tabs. I also stamped the date on the front of the envelope with my PSA Stamps.

Then I just took an old window frame and used some thumbtacks to hold the twine in place.

I did three rows of twine and then used a mini clothespin to hang the envelopes on. I have a serious thing for mini clothes pins... I also used them in my shabby chic frame wall. : )

Here's a view from the back.
