Ready for Thanksgiving???

Good morning to all my Unity Hip-Hopping Peeps. By this point in the blog hop, you should have figured out that this hop is all about your holiday table...Thanksgiving. 

If you have no idea what I am talking about then you need to head on over to the Unity Stamp Co. blog and cheek out all the very important happenings for this week!

For the first time in I don't even know how many years, we are actually going to get to spend Thanksgiving with my family at my mom & dad's house. I thought that this project for today might be fun for my crazy family who likes to debate just about anything. ;o)

This is a conversation starter box. 

It's filled with business card-sized cards with quick conversation prompts. You can see the business cards uncut underneath the box below. I simply came up with about 40 prompts and created them using a business card template in my word-processing files on my computer. Then I simply printed them onto cardstock and trimmed them. 

{I can send you the file if you want it, 
but I work on a Mac so I am pretty sure only Mac users will be able to open it.}

Below you can see the box open and what the business cards look like inside of it.

The template for the box came from HERE.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Picture Perfect (Nov kom-- sentiment and frame)
*Unity Stamp Co. A Mother's Love (Nov store kom-- flower)
*Basic Grey paper collection
*7gypsies knob
*Nestabilities Labels 5 dies
*Making Memories ribbon
*watercolor pencils
*StazOn Jet black ink pad

Now you need to hop on over to ***Julie's blog*** to see what brilliance she has created this week.
