Good Thursday morning everyone and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Even though it is Thanksgiving, the Create with Connie and Mary challenge continues! This week's challenge is to make a small Thanksgiving favor. Hmmm... This one was a little tough for me. We don't usually do Thanksgiving favors so I had to think about this.
I pulled out my Candy Wrapper die and made this cute little favor box up! Instead of making the ends into the candy wrapper I glued down one end of it into a box (I think I had to make some cuts to make this work), then pinched the top together to make a sort of milk carton. Cute! Lots of fun things can fit in here. I used a piece of Crumb cake cardstock and die cut the Little Leaves sizzlet. But I used the negative part of it (the part that you would normally throw away) as a stencil. I used More Mustard, Old Olive, and Cajun Craze and sponged the color onto the Crumb Cake piece using my stencil. Note: I did the sponging before I ran it through the Big Shot. Then I just embellished it a little and there you have it!
So eat your big turkey dinners and enjoy your family time (I know I am) and then when you are ready, check out the other designers' ideas for more inspiration. Then create your own (or maybe you already have) and post it to the Create with Connie and Mary website! I would love to see what you all come up with!
