Anything But A Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for November 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects feature items that are considered 3D, Home Décor or Gift Sets. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
Looking for a quick gift or Thanksgiving place setting? Look no further than our 3x3 Clear Tiny Treat Boxes. There are 16 boxes in each package for a great price of $7.50.
Monday night I met with my HR tribe of women. We gather monthly at a local restaurant and have three hours or so of catching up. We've been stuck on Maggiano's Italian restaurant based on the fact that they don't seem to be bothered by our extended stays!  I like to take a treat for each of them and this is what they each received this month.

The pumpkin was created using Thoughtful Branches. The stem of the pumpkin is the tree trunk. To give a bit of dimension to the pumpkin, I used one of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge to add flecks using Pumpkin Pie Craft Ink and then added some splatters of Gold Wink of Stella.

The box contains two Harvest Yankee Tea Lights; they smell heavenly! I love the spicy scents of fall candles. To center the pumpkins onto the box, I layed the pumpkins onto a 3" x 3" section of grid paper and set the clear box onto the pumpkin. This process made it easy to align the pumpkins. Be sure to orient your treat box so the opening is on the side, making it easy to remove the treat inside.

I used vintage Delightful Dijon Lace Ribbon to top off the box.

Not a fan of candles? Fill the box with chocolates, nuts, EOS lip balm or other small treats.

Don't have this die? You can create pumpkins using 3 ovals. The stem could be cut free hand and the 'bark' drawn onto the stem with a marker. There are many options in stamping - make projects your own!!
