Happy Fall-idays: Thanksgiving

Hello friends, Reverse Confetti kicked off Happy Fall-idays yesterday and will continue both today and tomorrow. 

What is Happy Fall-idays? 
It's an online showcase event where the Confetti Crew (aka design team) will be sharing inspiring holiday projects that go way beyond the card. We hope to inspire you during this busy holiday crafting season!

Yesterday's focus was Halloween, today's is Thanksgiving, and tomorrow's will be Christmas.

I have put together a trio of decorated mason jars to use as Thanksgiving treats for my younger son's elementary teachers. I found this pumpkin pie in a jar recipe, which will be perfect when the time comes. (Right now, the jars are filled with trail mix.)

I filled little half-pint jelly jars, then topped them off with a circle die-cuts (done with a Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts die). I wrapped some burlap "ribbon" around the jars, then wrapped some twill and tied off in a bow. (Anyone remember when twill was the big thing? I remember using it  on everything! I still love it, especially for rustic fall creations.)

Each jar has a Folded Tag tied to it, which I sponged with aqua ink along the top and green ink along the bottom.

The front is decorated with a pumpkin from Pumpkin Patch, along with leaves, a stem, and vines. All the pieces were stamped, then die-cut with the coordinating Pumpkin Patch Confetti Cuts dies.

The inside is stamped with a sentiment from Give Thanks and the "to" and "from" from Label Me.

CONFETTI CUTS DIES: Folded Tag Circles 'N ScallopsPumpkin Patch
INK: PTI Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate, Summer Sunrise, Canyon Clay, Classic Kraft
