Let’s be real here.  After pretty much an entire day of cooking for just one meal AND all the grocery shopping and prep for that meal, the last thing we all need is some fancy pants leftover craft to make.  I went for super simple but still fun.

sharpies, paint pens, ball point pens

Thanksgiving Leftover supplies,


The first step is drawing on your bags.  I did a quick fold over to see where I should draw my pattern and it could be visible once folded over.

Next write out your leftover labels.  I added some color detail to match each bag.

  1. We don’t do Thanksgiving here in the UK (although our shops have done this whole Black Friday thing this year and we are all a bit confused!) just a normal day at work for us 🙁
    I love these sweet little leftover bags though, The best thing about a big meal is the “not having to cook the next day, weird mix of things, just eating the leftovers day” next day!

    1. Oh black friday is so crazy. I never participate, too many people jamming into stores for me, ha! Thanks for the comment and enjoy your weekend!
