Thanksgiving Treats

When it comes to holidays and fun days like Valentines, etc I always make something for Daegens teacher, aides and classmates. He's in an Autism classroom with only 8 students so it makes it pretty easy. 

I made these cute Hershey nugget holders for the classroom staff and they really liked enjoyed them.
The tags and candy wrappers are a free printable file from FleeceFun.com. Just print and cut! I cut the wrappers out using my paper trimmer and I used a Spellbinder scallop square die to make the tags a bit cuter. Incase you're wondering I used Wilton pretzel bags from JoAnns and square Wilton sucker bags for the cookies below.

You can find them here:

I wanted to avoid giving his classmates candy, so I baked some Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies. They were just a box mix from the store that I added the chips to. The cute Turkey tag on the front of the package was a free cupcake topper printable from www.Kate.net. I used it as a package embellishment instead.  Again I used a Spellbinder die, the scallop circle.

Happy Thanksgiving, I hope I've inspired you today!
