Happy Thanksgiving box of chocolates
i tweeked the happy holidays box i did a couple years ago and made a happy Thanksgiving box with 3 rows. 12 long wouldn't work and that's how long Thanksgiving is. So i made it wider. The green doesn't show well but it really does say Happy Thanks giving. i used some old d/p for the wrap around the candy and not sure i like it so much but you could use any you have. The dimensions of the cut box are 9 1/2 by 7 1/2 inches. i scored at 1/4, 1 and 1 3/4 on all sides and cut all the corners except the rectangle furthest in. The sleeve is 6 3/8 by 10 1/2. i scored it 3, 3 3/4, 8 and 8 3/4. i folded on the score lines and used sticky strip to keep the sides down. i used the wide Stampin Up ribbon in old olive and the pumpkin pie narrow taffeta ribbon and a vintage tag. For the letters i adhered the new sticky sheets to different card stock and cut them with the Naturally Serif letter sizzlits decorative strip. For the pumpkins and leaves i stamped Autumn Harvest stamp set and cut them out and the leaves too. i colored with crayons first, but it didn't seem bright enough so i markered them with pumpkin pie, elegant eggplant, old olive, curry and red. Nice gift for teachers or for the hostess at Thanksgiving.
