Blessing Mix

Hi scrapers :) I bring you my version of the "Blessing Mix" that I saw Angie with Chic-n-Scratch do a few weeks ago, or you may of seen Tracy with Craft Junkie Too do something similar as well.  

Blessing Mix Poem:
The Bugles are a symbol of the Cornucopia, a horn of plenty.
The Pretzels represent arms folded in Thanks & Prayer.
The Candy Corn reminds us that during the first winter, the pilgrims were allowed only five kernels of corn per day because the food was scarce.
The Fruit is a reminder that Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.
The Peanuts represent seeds, the potential of the bounteous harvest of the next season if they are planted & well-tended.

Turkey is cut from Create-a-Critter at 2.5"
The paper rosette was made by using a 12x1.5" strip of paper and scoring at every .25". When that is finished fold on each score line using the mountain/valley fold. See this video for a better explanation. 
I used Diamond Stickles around the edges to give them a little glitter. 
The poem was printed for Angie's PDF file she has available here.

I filled cello bags with bugles (I couldn't find the original so I used chocolate/peanut butter), pretzels, candy corn (only 5), orange slices, and peanuts. 

I hope you have enjoyed my Thanksgiving Blessing Mix treats. I gave these to my co-workers, my mom, and a neighbor that helps me out with sewing projects. 

Happy Scraping!
