I’m blogging a day early this week so you’ll have time to make these books.
Today I am offering a new free print and make book with the theme of Thanksgiving. It features original images and poetry. Please feel free to print and make as many as you’d like. Give one to each person at your Thanksgiving table. Write a personal message on the last page.
“I’m Thankful for You” Book
If you like this book and want to make more, there is a terrific selection of free books available on Marc Snyder’s Free For All.
Here are step-by-step instructions on how to fold and cut the book.
If you’d like some variety, here is another free print and make Thanksgiving book I made in 2011. It has a blank page near the end for your own sentiment.
This free book is part of my 1,517 Acts of Kindness Project.
I wish you a very happy holiday.
Every year I think about giving a Thanksgiving message to the people in my life for whom I am grateful and every year I get too close to Thanksgiving and run out of time. So this year, I’ve made this foldable book, using one of my all time favorite fall foliage photographs, to give away. It’s a simple structure and, as my gift to you, you’re welcome to print and make as many of them as you’d like. Use it to say thank you to someone who is important to you. Or many someones. I’ve left the last page blank for you to write in a personal message.
Here is the PDF file, click on the link, not the photo. Be patient, it is a very large file: Thanksgiving Book by Ginger Burrell
For instructions on how to fold it, try Marc Snyder’s How to Make an Eight Page Book Out of a Single Sheet of Paper. (Except there are no edges to trim before beginning.)

I’m thankful for my many friends in the art community. To all of you, thank you – And a very Happy Thanksgiving.
