Pumpkin Treat Boxes

What an elegant way to dress up your Thanksgiving Day table.
 So easy.  You all know how much I love easy!  lol

To make your own. 
Die cut six circles with the SU 3 Inch Circle Originals Die.
Emboss the circles with Elegant Lines embossing folder. 
(You can do up to 3 at a time in the folder!)
Sponge over embossing and edges with Pumpkin Pie ink.

Using Old Olive CS, die cut 1 leaf from the Sizzix leaves #2 die.
Hand cut a triangle stem.  Cut an 8.5" strip 1/4" wide for the vine.
The handle is 3/4" x 8".  Sponge all with Old Olive ink.

Die cut a fancy favor box from Pumpkin Pie CS. 
You could also use Box #2, just cut off the top flap.
Use  a 2.5 tall strip of CS or trim the box down after cutting it out.
Assemble box.

Layer the 3 circles over each other, for each side.  The middle one should be on top.
Attach with Sticky Strip to front and back of box.

Tuck the hand cut stem between 2 circles at the top edge. 
Curl vine around a pencil.  Attach vine at center point over stem.
Add leaf over front of vine.

Attach handle to inside with Sticky Strip.
Opt:  Add 2 brads to sides for deocrations.
Fill with treats and share with family and friends!

Life hasn't slowed down like I expected.  Something has to give
and it always seems to be my blog and manicure!  I have been saying no to all things
asked of me for 2 weeks now, and I see an end in sight of the back to back actvities.
So I better be able to get back to blogging more regularly!  :)

Happy stamping!
