Thanksgiving Table Favors

If you are looking for an easy favor for your Thanksgiving table, give these a try. I cut strips of cardstock into 2 x 8-1/2 inch strips and cut each end with the tag topper punch. Then I scored each tag at 3-5/8" and 4-/5/8", folded on the score lines, and attached the two tag ends together with glue dots. One side will stand straighter and one side will be a little bit slanted. The slanted side is the one you want to attach your greeting to. I punched 2-1/2 inch circles from the Into the Woods DSP, inked the edges, added some die cut leaves, added a label punched with the label bracket punch, and then added a die cut greeting. If you don't have a die cut greeting, you could stamp an image of your choice. I added a gold sequin and tied the top with some fall colored thick baker's twine. Inside I slipped a Russell Stover caramel candy. They are approximately 1-1/4 x 2-1/2 inches, so any candy that approximate size would work. I didn't glue mine in because they fit snuggly enough, but you could attach the candy with glue dots. I had 10 done in about an hour, done in assembly line fashion, so a pretty quick project. The part that took the longest was the die cutting, so if you skipped that and just did stamping, they would be even quicker! Finished standing height of favor is 3-3/4 inches, so they won't take up a lot of room on your table. (Note: Die cut leaves are from Simon Says Stamp and "grateful" is from Taylored Expressions. All other products used are Stampin' Up. With the exception of the baker's twine, all colors and items are current Stampin' Up product.)
