Hostess Gift for Thanksgiving Dinner

It's not to early to start thinking about Thanksgiving and planning your menu,  and home decorations. If you have been invited out to eat at someone else home, here is an idea that will surly impress your hostess!

What hostess wouldn't want this beautiful tin filled with chocolates and decorated with Stampin' Up! beautiful Glimmer Paper?
What is so nice about this gift idea is you can change the paper and lid decorations for many other occasions.
What I did was cut out the leaves using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Autumn Accents Die. Using my sponge daubers, I used Riding Hood Red, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Pads and colored each leaf. I added a different color on the edges of each leaf. The tin will hold 12 Hershey Chocolate Nuggets. I cut 12 designer series paper strips 1" x 3", wrapped the strip around the candy and used Sticky Strip to hold it together. I alternated the design of the designer series paper for every other piece of candy. I used Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper. I chose one sheet and used both sides of the sheet.
