Hello my crafty friends!  Today I had fun making Thanksgiving Blessing Mix Goody Bags! I used Create A Critter, Freshly Picked, Simply Charmed and Doodlecharms, as well as, Cardz TV Stamps "Thankful for You". 
If you'd like to make some too, here's what you'll need:
Candy Corn
M & M's
Hersey's Kisses
Here's the Blessing Mix Recipe that you can copy, paste to your own Word document, and print out for including with your goody bag.
Thanksgiving Blessing Mix:
Bugles: Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our nation's abundance.
Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.

Candy corn: Sacrifices of the Pilgrims' first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.

Nuts or seeds: Promise of a a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.

Dried fruits: Harvest gifts of our bountiful land.

M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.
Hershey's Kiss: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
Thanks so much for watching! Have fun making these goody bags for your family, friends, and co-workers...Have a blessed day!
