A Monogrammed Thanksgiving~

Good Evening! I would like to apologize for not posting in a while.. I seem to be going through these little cycles lately but not because I am not keeping busy in the craft room, that's for sure! I have been making lots of special little gifts for my friend at work. She wanted something to have for her family on Thanksgiving and I love, love, love these super easy to make treat holders. I thought it would be nice to personalize them by adding the monogram to the fronts. I saw the little feathers with the gold beads and leaves and thought they would be perfect to stuff inside with the candy and they reminded me of a turkey, so why not.. I used the SU! Autumn Vine DP paper. I have used this paper so much this fall. I love the colors and the patterns. You can find this in the holiday mini... speaking of, if you haven't ordered from that catalog yet, you must take a look. I love it.. the snowflakes are just fantastic. You can attach them to gifts, cards, tags, and I thought they would be perfect on the front of these treat holders for Christmas and tuck a gift card inside, what do you think?? I will post one for a sample for you when I get my Christmas paper in this week. Well, I hope you enjoy the week and we are looking so forward to Thanksgiving. I smell stuffing.. sniff, sniff, sniff! hee hee.. Have a great night and a terrific holiday with your family. I'll be back around soon!

Here is just a couple of them a little bit closer.. these don't stand up very well, so they are a bit harder to get a good pic! Have a great night!
