I was so thrilled when I figured this out yesterday that I had to share it! My son's grandmother gave him a Halloween gift in a Halloween themed lunch bag. As I was putting the gift away I thought about how to save the bag and remember it for next year. At the same time I was thinking of writing thank you notes for his Halloween gifts.
Yes, you guessed it, the two came together and I was pleased to discover that I could cut up the bag and have the cutest Halloween thank you notes. I was able to make two good sized ones (and the bottom 3 inches of the bag became a cute play hat for my one year old!). I then wrote on the "cards" and put them in envelopes I had made out of Halloween themed ads I found in my many magazines.
Free thank you notes! I am now thinking of all my options-I could have added a bow, ribbon, plastic spider leftovers, etc. I am also considering waiting until after Christmas to buy the discounted Christmas themed lunch bags to make thanks notes from them too! So many ideas all of a sudden!
