A Thanksgiving Treat Bag

It’s a snow day and I am stuck at home, so why not post a fun crafty blog?  We have 2″ of snow and are expecting get a total of 7″ today, so I am grounded at home.

Not too long ago, my friend Terry had me over to her house to make this  Thanksgiving project.  I think it would make a great hostess gift; a Thanksgiving favor or treat bag; or a nice “pop-by” gift to bring clients.  I can’t remember what exactly we put inside this bag: an instant apple cider packet and perhaps some chocolate or caramels?  The recipient of this will have to let me know.  😉

These adorable mini lunch sacks are from Stampin’ Up!, along with everything but the cinnamon stick.  The specialty printer printed paper, lunch sacks and stamps can be found in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog (good through 1/3/11) on pages 12-13: Day of Gratitude (clear mount or wood mount rubber stamps).

Here is a close-up of the paper-crafted part and the water smudge (arggggh) on my stamped sentiment:

Thank you for reading my blog, and have a very happy Thanksgiving this coming Thursday!  We have SO MUCH to be thankful for, so count your many blessings.  🙂

    Super cute! They would also make cute ‘doggy bags’ for leftovers… though it may need to be a slightly LARGER bag. 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!!
