Happy {and safe!} Thanksgiving to my US readers!

Sometimes you just need a last minute treat to either set at the table (think name tags instead of this sentiment) or as a little hostess gift.  These little packs of chocolate whip up in no time at all!

Here’s what you need:

  • Hey Foxy stamp set
  • Versafine Onyx ink
  • Pumpkin, Saffron cardstock
  • Fiesta 6×6 patterned paper pack
  • Toffee twine
  • Thankful for You die set
  • 1 inch punch, ruler and pencil

Steps:

  1. Cut pumpkin cardstock to 7 x 1 1/2 size.
  2. Saffron cardstock cut to 2 x 3.
  3. Score and fold pumpkin cardstock at 3 and 4 inches.
  4. Use a ruler to measure 1/2 inch from the top and mark both sides.
  5. Position one inch square punch over each marker, angled, to create a notch cut out.
  6. Cut 6×6 Fiesta patterned paper into 6 strips (so 1 x 6 inches) and then cut into half leaving a 3″ strip.
  7. Adhere patterned paper to front and back of scored and folded pumpkin cardstock.
  8. Wrap the cardstock piece around the stack of chocolate candies and tie off at the top with Toffee twine.
  9. Die cut medium sized leaf from the Thankful for You die set out of saffron cardstock.
  10. Stamp sentiment with Versafine ink on to leaf.
  11. Tuck leaf stem under twine wrap and adhere.
  12. enjoy!

I am blessed and thankful for you – my readers!!
