Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving (a couple days late)!  I hope you all had a fabulous day with family and friends and lots of yummy food!  Last year I started my own tradition of making little favors to put at everyone's place.  These are the little cuties I made:
I found the turkey idea on Pinterest (where else, right?).  They were really pretty easy, but here's a tip: if you can find double stuffed oreos (might have to go with the traditional cookie) it would be a whole lot easier to put the stick in there!  Of course, I had to pull out my papercrafting supplies:   I die cut a tag and stamped it with a sentiment and a cute little turkey which you will be able to see better in the next photo.  Then I tied it on with a bit of twine and finished it off with two ribbons.


Challenges:
Paper Nest Dolls #23--anything goes
Shopping Our Stash #179--Free is Good (the orange ribbon is something my mom had left over from her crafting days.  I have yards of it.  Free will be good for a looooong time)
Word Art Wednesday #168--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Southern Girls--celebration (celebrating Thanksgiving)
Brown Sugar #122--anything goes

Supplies:
Stamps: Verve "Tall Oaks" sentiment; PTI "Places, Please" turkey
Dies: Spellbinders "Charmed, I'm Sure!"
