Thankful Thoughts Favors

Cute favors to add to your Thanksgiving festivities!

Using my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Scallop Circle Bigz Die I was able to make these Thanksgiving favors.  Instead of cutting just one scallop circle, I folded a piece of 8 x 5 Tangerine Tango cardstock in half and placed the folded half on the die leaving four scallops showing to create a crease, not a cut.  I embellished the scallops with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, filled a small cello bag with candy corn, and placed a piece of Sticky Strip on the inside of the cardstock to help keep the bag in place.  I punched a hole through the two scallop circles at the top and tied them closed with some retired Chocolate Chip Ribbon.  I cut leaves with Leaves #2 Original Die, using retired Designer Series Paper, stamped my sentiment  and tied that onto the ribbon with Hemp Twine. 

To make today's favors I used the following:

Stamp Set Grateful Greetings #116511
