Triangle Box Table Favors (for Skipping Stones Design)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers and friends. Hope you are enjoying a relaxing and tummy stuffing weekend. If you are in a panic and looking for cute favors for your dinner table, put some of these together really quick!

I used 4" by 8" paper for mine . . . it makes a little smaller box, which I prefer. I scored my box before stamping it. I stamped my apricot appeal paper with wheat tares first, and then embossed them in gold. Once that was done, I used my SU ink colors to stamp turkey drumticks, and leaves to create my autumn paper (all of these stamps come in the Thanksgiving set by Skipping Stones Design).

The box is filled with gold hershey kisses (gotta match, of course pumpkin spice ones would be perfect too) and tied with a pumpkin pie grosgrain ribbon. The final touch was to add a little "Happy Thanksgiving" sentiment which also comes in the set. I layered it using my nestabilites ovals, and voila - quick and easy favors.

I saw directions on how to make these cool triangle boxes on SCS:

Stamps: Thanksgiving (Skipping Stones Design) Paper: Apricot Appeal (SU!), Solar White Classic Crest (Neenah), Pumpkin Pie (SU!) Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko), Pumpkin Pie (SU!), Vintage Sepia Versafine (Tsukineko), Ruby Red (SU!) Accessories: gold embossing powder (Filigree Fine Art Powder - Stewart Superior Corp.), Pumpkin pie grosgrain ribbon (SU!), hole punch (Fiskars), gold brads (The Paper Studio), Painterly Petals - Hydrangeas (Prima Marketing Inc.), Scalloped and plain oval nestabilities (Spellbinders)
