Happy Tuesday readers! I returned yesterday from a 3-day craft retreat in Connecticut with my mom and several friends. Today I am sharing another one of the little treats I made for everyone. As I mentioned last week, it's become a bit of a tradition that when we attend a retreat, we each make little gifts for everyone else attending. It doesn't necessarily have to be paper-crafted either. We have some knitters in our group who have knitted hats, and this year my mom made jam for everyone! Fortunately, it is a small group of six, so it doesn't entail copious amount of work or supplies. It's simply for the fun of it. On the first day of the retreat I gave everyone these hot cocoa treat holders, and on Day 3 I left these these "turkey treats" filled with candy on everyone's table.
These Lawn Fawn Fancy Box dies were cut from Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I adhered a small 3 1/4" 2 1/2" piece of acetate to the underside of the box window before adhering the entire box together with tear tape. I stamped the sentiment in Crushed Curry ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and notched the right end. The turkey was made using the Patchwork Turkey die by Impression Obsession. I cut the body of the turkey from Early Espresso and Crumb Cake cardstock. The nose, legs and hearts were cut from Pumpkin Pie cardstock. The turkey feathers were made from miscellaneous scrap papers. I drew on his eyes with a black Sharpie marker. *Note, I realized AFTER I made my turkeys that the orange hearts should have been his wings! Oops!!
Here is the Lawn Fawn Fancy Box die I used to create today's treat holders:
I have been loving the simplicity of dies to create treat holders with. I was able to put together both the Lawn Fawn Fancy Box and Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag dies without instruction, so that shows how easy they are to assemble!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
