Thanksgiving Party Favor

This is a perfect favor for your Thanksgiving Guests. If you will be a guest for Thanksgiving this is also a great hostess gift or contribution to the festivites.

First die cut the treat bag with AccuCut's Bag Treat Wrap (3-D) Crease Extra Long Cut Die. This die from AccuCut cuts and creases your project. Fold on crease lines. Double sided paper works best for this project. If you don't have double sided paper die cut 2 treat wraps and adhere the 2 back to back. We used Autum Plaid from American Traditions and Mango Orange Treasures Cardstock from WorldWin Papers.

Next fill a poly treat bag with Lindt Lindor Truffles. Place inside the treat wrap to determine how many Truffles you need to fill in your poly treat bag. Place the poly treat bag inside the Treat Wrap and make any necessary adjustments for your treats to fit in the wrap (more or less candy). Fold over the top of the poly bag and staple twice to secure the truffles in the bag. Next staple the poly back to the front side of your wrap. Before stapling make sure that the flap from the backside of the wrap will cover your staples. Next place adhesive on the tab on the backside of the wrap and adhere to the front of the wrap. You have now assembled your bag treat wrap.

Next design the header for your Treat Wrap. Cut a 3 1/2" x 1 3/4" piece of and dry emboss with cuttllebug textile embossing folder. Use a scalloped border punch to edge the paper. Cut a 3 3/4" x 2" mat from a piece of Deep Brown Treasure Cardstock-WorldWin Papers.

To create our flower we used Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Nestabilities. Die cut 3 different sizes of scalloped circles. To make your scalloped circles into flowers simply use scissors to cut between each scallop. Cut just far enough into the circle to make petals. Next fluff the petals of the flower and adhere layers together. Use the gid from any of your JustRite Stampers and your 6 pt small letters and write 2008. Use the smallest circle die from your Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities to die cut and emboss the image. Cut a mat circle from Mango Orange cardstock. Adhere both pieces to the center of the flower.

Create your Give Thanks Tag by using the smallest harmony rectangular stamper and design your verse using the 50 pt and 25 pt Times New Roman. Ink your stamp with Cosmic Copper Brillance Ink. Die cut tag from Spellbinders Tag 5. Scuff the edges with Cosmic Copper Brillance Ink.
