Thanksgiving Leftover Labels and Packages


Besides spending time with family and friends, one of the best parts of Thanksgiving are the leftovers. Everyone loves the taste of mashed potatoes and stuffing the next day. So, this year, as your guests depart for the evening, pass out adorable packages full of turkey, cranberries and apple pie. This extra touch will surely impress your guests and wow them again as they enjoy lunch the next day.

If you have kids in the house, decorating the leftover boxes is a fun project for them to do while the adults finish chitchatting and cleaning up.

Step 1: Print out your labels from your home printer.

Step 2: Assemble your boxes and fill them with your guests’ favorite dishes. If your dish is extra gooey, like green bean casserole, mashed potatoes with extra gravy, or cranberry sauce, you may want to line the box with tin foil so it doesn’t leak.

Step 3: Start decorating your boxes with ribbon, rickrack, yarn, string, or basically whatever you have. Tip: tape your ribbon, yarn, etc. on the bottom of the box that way the tape won’t distract from your design. Add feathers for a fun element. Also, try to make each box unique for a personalized touch.

What are your favorite leftovers? Mine is my grandmother’s stuffing, which is loaded with crumbled sausage and breadcrumbs. I also love my mom’s roasted Brussel sprouts. Both are pure, edible heaven.
