Hello! Shelly Hickox here today with a quick and easy favor that would be perfect for your Thanksgiving table or any Fall gathering.
These favors go together so quickly, you could make them while your turkey is roasting in the oven, or while you're watching the Macy's parade! Fill them with nuts, candy corn, or little trinkets - you could even tuck in a little note saying why you're thankful for the recipient. Who wouldn't love that?
I love the touch of vintage sparkle on the letter - it's such an unexpected element in the midst of the other, more rustic embellishments. Here's how to make this fun treat:
Begin by die cutting double-sided cardstock using the Treat Popper die from Brenda Walton. Using the same die, cut the outer wrapper from burlap paper and adhere to popper die cut. Crease all folds, apply Wonder Tape to tabs and assemble, leaving one end open to fill. Sponge edges with brown ink, if desired. Fill with desired treats and tie with jute twine.
To embellish the favor, cut a tag from coordinating paper using the small tag die from Karen Burniston's Gift Card Holder Framelits set. Next, cut an oak leaf from brown Kraft Core paper. Punch a hole and tie a ribbon through the tag. Adhere leaf and tag to front of popper. Cover a piece of chipboard with a panel of Wonder Tape. Die cut desired letters using Tim Holtz's Vintage Market die. Remove the film to expose the adhesive and cover with glitter. Glue letter to tag. For a cute dimensional element, glue a small acorn to the corner of the tag.
I have to say, I think this die from Brenda Walton is going to be a favorite of mine. It is incredibly easy to put together, but looks so fancy. I hope you're inspired to add a little bit of fun to your next get together - I know your guests will be thrilled!
