Happy Thanksgiving

Hi!  I hope everyone had a very blessed Thanksgiving.  We sure did.  My mother-in-law cooked for about 17 of us.  I decided we needed place cards for each plate and after seeing these little cutties on Pinterest, I knew I had to make them as take home favors, too.
And since I have all these paper crafting supplies, I had to dress them up, right?

 Luckily, I had these little treat bags that were just the perfect size.  I tied them up with ribbon.  Almost all of it was recycled from other projects.  Bonus for that!  Then I die cut leaves and little tags.  I stamped a sentiment on the little tags and wrote everyone's name on their leaf in gold pen.  I inked the edges of the leaves with red, which doesn't show in the photo, but it added some nice depth to each leaf.
