Make a Mini Paper Lunch Bag Thanksgiving Party Favor

Here is yet another fabulous Thanksgiving idea made by my bff Nancy.
You can use a paper lunch bag to make Thanksgiving party favors.  Fill the bag with a pack of hot apple cider and some cookies, and be sure to finish it off by tying on a cinnamon stick.

This particular treat bag uses a mini paper lunch bag.    

My favorite part of this treat is the tag.  I like how Nancy added ink to the edges.  The ink gives depth to the tag and brings an over-all richness to the project.  You can apply the ink by using a sponge, or by applying the ink directly from the ink pad onto the paper.

Make a "Toilet Paper Roll" Scrapbook

Need a place to show off your crap?  (Sorry!  I just couldn't resist!)  After you see this elegant mini-scrapbook, you'll never look at a toilet paper roll the same way again. 

Just start with some of these:

Next, press down on the roll and use a bone folder to crease each side.

Use Mod Podge to adhere the decorative paper to the roll and to the removable book pages.

What makes this little book so beautiful is the use of the different textures.  Notice how my BFF Nancy used buttons, lace ribbon, decorative paper, and regular card stock to create this beauty.

Talk about turning trash into treasure!

Thanksgiving Card: Tutorial

Remember this cute little goose?  It is a stamp that is part of the "Cherish Friendship" stamp set.  This cute little bowl of cherries is also a part of the set.  Can I just tell you that I was up until 1 am making a bunch of these?  Trust me, it's a fun card to make!  Too bad our Thanksgiving plans won't be very exciting this year.  I would have loved to have given them to my aunt as a thank-you for hosting us.  :(

I've listed the supplies and cardstock measurements below.
