Layers of Gratitude - Alternate Project - Message Frame

Dry Erase Message Boards for some Family Gratitude
At home, even the little things deserve gratitude! Enter the February Paper Pumpkin kit, Layers of Gratitude! I used the extra pieces to make a couple Gratitude Dry Erase message boards. They came out great! (If I do say so myself! lol)

ALTERNATE IDEA : You could do a nice retirement or team party message sheet, and have everyone sign the paper before you frame it. Teacher Appreciation? It would make a nice remembrance of fun times and the people you shared them with!
ALTERNATE IDEA: How substantial would a framed Thank You be for a special event - business donors to school fundraising, sponsors of a team, sponsors of a local event? Frame up some photos, have the participants or coordinators sign and/or put notes, and give your benefactors a really memorable Thank You!! You might get even more support next time! ;-)

To hold the dry erase markers to the frame - I don't know about you, but my kids would loose their heads if they weren't attached to their necks! - I cut one of the boxes in half and stuck it to the frame. I used Sticky Tape, but any strong adhesive will work. I used some of the bakers twine from the kit to tie the lids onto the back of the frame.

To get the pens on the same side, I just flipped the left side of the box
over and stamped the "back." Folded the same way, and attached to the frame.
I stamped the borders and the 'I just wanted to say...' onto an 8.5 x 11 piece of card stock. I used coordinating card stock to the kit - Daffodil Delight and Pool Party so I could use everything in the kit, but you could easily change up your color scheme to match your decor!

Framed in extra document frames I have (don't ask) these will make a nice reminder at our front entry for the kids - and myself - to show a little gratitude to each other for everyday kindness. Thanks for helping me with my homework. Thanks for doing yard work with me. Thanks for helping me with my chores. Thanks for being Awesome! ;-)


Totally fun, and the giant letters in the kit worked really well for this project!
Happy Crafting!
