Thanksgiving Treats

I have been waiting for my Autumn Accents Bigz Die to come, and was happy to try it out when making these Thanksgiving Hershey Miniature Treat Bags.  Now, the paper and ribbon is retired, but I love the fact that I got the Designer Series Paper awhile back on the Clearance Rack, so I saved some money when making these items for my craft fairs.
To wrap the nuggets, I just cut strips of Designer Series Paper at 1" x 3" and using Sticky Strip, wrapped the paper around the candy.  To make the tray for the candy to be placed on, I cut my cardstock to measure 4 1/4" x 2 1/4" and scored it at 1/4" on each side.   I placed the tray with the candy on it inside a "Pretzel Bag" that I purchased at a local craft store and tied it closed with some retired Pumpkin Pie Ribbon.  I then added my leaves that were cut with my Big Shot and the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  I punched holes in each leaf with my Crop-a-Dile, added some retired Hemp Twine, and my "Happy Thanksgiving" sentiment that was stamped on Ivory cardstock with Crajun Craze ink.  This was punched out with the Modern Label punch.
I made a basketful, and they make a nice display with all of the Fall Leaves and papers.
I used the following:  *Current Stampin' Up! products listed only*
