My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Blessing Mix

Good Monday Morning,

Since this week is a holiday here in the good old USA, I wanted to show off one last fall type item. So, are you ready for a great idea for your Thanksgiving table? How about this Blessing Mix for a favor at every ones place setting? The cello bag is filled with pretzels, candy corn, nuts, dried fruit, and Bugles. I got the idea for this here, and I knew the Sketchy Leaves set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, over at My Grafico would be perfect for decorating this little box.

The box is my card box (minus the handle) from this post.

It's made from a piece of card stock 6 1/2" X 10".

Score the 6 1/2" side at 1". Turn paper 180 degrees and score at 1" again.
Score the 10" side at 4 1/2". Turn paper 180 degrees and score at 4 1/2" again.

You will then cut out the middle 1" tabs and fold up the remaining score lines and tape to secure.
Then just decorate as you wish.

I colored my leaf and acorn with Bic Mark-Its and Koh-I-Noor pencils and used a blender pen to soften them up. Then I cut out my leaf, sent it through my Cuttlebug using a leaf embossing folder, which is the reason it has some texture to it.

And a close up of the verse for you.
As always, thanks for visiting me and you can check out Lindsay and the rest of the team here too.
Details not mentioned above-Paper: Pat Catan's, Bazill, 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8" Circle Punches: Stampin' Up!, ribbon from my supplies
