Fall Favor Treat Containers: Thanksgiving Cricut Cartridge, Giveaway

Fall Favors for Your Fall Table Scape

I absolutely LOVE to decorate my table for any season! I love creating a table scape complete with each place setting have something "special". This month I'm working ahead to create beautiful Fall favor pails to place on each place setting cup (I turn the cup upside down)! These Fall Favor Pails can hold candy, small gifts, a recipe to exchange, anything your heart desires!
How are they made? EASY PEASY! Just use a small peat pot that is sold in the Garden Center--they come in about a pack of 20!
Simply add a ribbon handle, and decorate your front of your peat pot (you can even paint these if desired). I chose to use my new THANKSGIVING cartridge!
I also chose to fill mine with Curled Raffia--to soften the inside! How do you make CURLY RAFFIA? Well you simply soak your raffia, wrap it around small wooden dowel rods, and bake in the oven till dry at 200degrees!
Come back tomorrow because I'll have another project created with the THANKSGIVNG cartridge!

GIVEAWAY--Leave me a comment, and I'll choose one follower who comments to receive some CURLED Raffia!!
Ingredients: Small Peat Pots (Brown paperish pots used to start seeds)
Curled Raffia (how to above)
Felt Flowers
Rhinestone Jewels by Jolees

All the Cricky Best, from my hands to yours,
