Autumn/Thanksgiving Teacher Treats

I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving with your friends and family.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I associate it with being with my maternal grandparents.  I still have my grandma, who is now 92 and as pretty as ever.

I made these Cricut cut tags for teacher gifts last week.  I delivered them all the Monday before Thanksgiving; it is technically still autumn even if the temperatures are saying it is time for winter fun.  (Cricut "Create a Critter 2" p.63 cut at 6".  Actual size is 3.5" tall.)
(This is the back of the tag.  I stamped with a Neat and Tangled sentiment from the "Just For You" set; on sale this weekend at $6 off!)

Here are all of the treats, ready to go:
 Supplies:  Doodlebug Designs "Friendly Forest" papers, Doodle twine, and Doodlebug Sprinkles.

I filled each with "acorns":  Nutter Butter minis, Hershey kisses, and Nestle mini chocolate chips held together with edible adhesive:
I hope you had a happy November!

Hi there! I could have sworn I've been to this blog before but after looking at some of the articles I realized it's new to me. Nonetheless, I'm certainly happy I discovered it and I'll be book-marking it and checking back often!
