Save the Turkeys

Hello everyone!  Cathy here with today's post for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog.  I just can't get over the fact that Thanksgiving is this week!  Where has the fall gone?  My DH and I always have Thanksgiving dinner at his second cousin's house who LOVES to cook, but I always take along something to contribute to the feast, AND the table favors.  In my search for favor ideas, I stumbled upon this "Flat-Backed Treat Box" in the tutorials at Splitcoaststampers and thought it might be just right for the table this year.


This little box is made from one 7" X 9" piece of card stock and perfectly holds three little Hershey Chocolate Nuggets.  Each section of the box was covered by "Citron" designer paper by My Mind's Eye.  The Fence and Grass Die Set was used to add interest to the background and ground the turkey which was colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut before popping him onto the box.   The turkey image is from the Save the Turkeys Clear Stamp Set, but is also available as a digi image!  A button, twine, and a sentiment finish off the treat box.  Now all I need to do is make eight more!  LOL!

I hope you've gotten some inspiration today and will give this little treat box a try.  It would look just as adorable with a Christmas Cocoa or Rhubarb image, many of which are also available as digis.  And the good news is... as part of our ongoing Birthday celebration this month, digital images are on sale right now for 25% off until November 21st at the Sweet 'n Sassy Store!

I hope you will also take some time this week to reflect on all the many blessings in your life and give thanks to the Lord from whom all good things come.

Thank you for being such wonderful friends of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps...
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hugs,
Cathy
