5 Thankful days of Thanksgiving projects from papermadeprettier, project #9

I can't believe it's the last day for my 10 projects in 5 thankful days!  It was fun.  Guess what? Stay tuned for my Christmas series! If you missed the first 8 projects, click here: 5 Thankful Days Project #1.  I have posted two projects a day for 5 days so that when you love them and want to make them, you will have plenty of time to make yours before the turkey comes to town! Ok, so on Day 5, I cheated. Project #9 is a group of projects with a similar theme. I just couldn't choose just one! They are all fabulous! The theme is gifts!!!

DAY 5:
Project #9
Cornucopia of gifts and a bonus candle!!!

Stampin' Up has gifts all wrapped up for Thanksgiving.  Wouldn't these be perfect for classroom treat bags, teacher gifts, hostess gifts on the big day?  They are all perfect!

Chevron owl bag:
If you don't have this owl punch, you will now! It's so cute!!! 
Stampin' Up supplies used:
paper: sweater weather designer series paper, chocolate chip 8 1/2" x 11" card stock, champagne glimmer paper
ink: tangerine tango classic reinker
embellishments: chocolate chip designer button (neutrals collection) , pumpkin  pie 1/8" taffeta ribbon (I thought it would clash with tango ink, but it didn't!)
tools: owl punch
Big Shot, autumn accents bigz die
adhesives: snail adhesive
other: sponge daubers, build a banner simply created kit (for stencil), mini muslin bags

Squirt a little tangerine tango ink onto a plastic surface (I use butter dish lid).  Get a LITTLE on your sponge dauber and rub on a scratch paper.  Lay chevron stencil over the bag and sponge in a back and forth rubbing motion (not dabbing, but dragging) onto the bag. You will have to move the stencil up once you fill in what you can since the circle cut-out is not used.  Cut leaf out with autumn accents bigz die and Big Shot. Punch designer series paper with owl punch on all three: tango paper, chocolate chip paper and glimmer paper.  Build owl with snail adhesive.  Affix to leaf with snail adhesive.  Pull bag closed, tie ribbon, glue dot the stem under the bow, glue dot button on top of bow and then glue dot the heart onto the button.

Thank You Thanksgiving Kraft Gift Box:

Stampin' Up supplies used:
paper: sweater weather designer series paper, whisper white paper, champagne glimmer paper
stamp set: Hello Lovely
ink: chocolate chip and tangerine tango stampin' write markers (neutrals series and brights series)
embellishments: crumb cake designer button
punch: 1 inch circle punch
Big Shot: designer rosette bigz XL die
adhesive: glue dots, snail adhesive, sticky strip, double sided tape

Cut strip of tango designer series paper to wrap around gift box. Wrap around and secure with double sided tape. Cut two 12" strips at 1 1/2" width and place in rosette bigz die (I found that you have to tape the strip down or it will move when you send it through the big shot).  Attach the strips to each other and then end to end with sticky strip.  Push the center which is not scalloped down and fill with hot glue and hold until it sets.  Stamp floral design on whisper white and punch with circle punch.  Add crumb cake button with glue dot to the stamp then use a glue dot to adhere it to the rosette. Color Thank you you're the best stamp with tango and chocolate chip marker.  Trim leaving an edge. Layer onto a champagne glimmer paper and cut out. Attach under rosette with a glue dot.  Fill with Thanksgiving goodness!!!

Chevron "Tag a Bag" gift bag: (inspired by Patty Bennett, Stampin' Up demonstrator)

Stampin' Up supplies used:
gift packaging: Tag a Bag gift bags
ink: crushed curry, chocolate chip classic ink pads
embellishments: tea lace paper doilies, Cajun craze designer button (regals collection), basic black designer button (neutrals collection)
other: stampin' sponge, My Digital Studio!!!
adhesive: double sided tape, glue dots

I set up this quote on My Digital Studio and ran the bag through my printer!!! Awesome, right?  These were in my free downloads. The leaves are recolored in MDS with crushed curry and cajun craze. Download a free trial of My Digital Studio program here!  Don't worry, the program is only $20 if you love it! I sponged crushed curry and chocolate chip ink onto the doily and taped over the bag with double sided tape.  Adhere the black button onto the Cajun craze button and to the bag with glue dots. Fill the bag and tape shut with double sided tape. DONE!  EASY to replicate for multiple gifts. Can you say CLASSROOM THANKSGIVING BAG TREATS???
