Make It Monday #141: Adding Glitter with Heat and Stick Embossing Powder

Hello everyone!  Just wanted to share some little goodies I made for my friend for Thanksgiving.  She wanted to have little favors for her guests this Thanksgiving.  I came up with these little packages to hold some sweet little chocolate turkeys.  The glassine bag was the perfect size and I absolutely loved the way they turned out.  During my creative process, I wanted to dress up the clothes pins and I thought of the Make it Monday video this week and thought that would be the perfect touch. 

I trimmed a piece of coordinating paper to fit the clothes pin and used the technique described in the video to cover the clothes pin with glitter.  It was perfect since I was dealing with little candies and did not want the glitter to be all over the place, sticking to everything.  It was perfect since the heat "set" the glitter.  Not to mention the fact that it took it up a notch!!

 The pumpkins were die cut from the Primitive Pumpkins die from My Favorite Things.  The leaves were punched with a leaf punch from Recollections.  I of course used my favorite little shipping tags and doilies!!  Can't get enough of those little things! 
 The sentiments were from Papertrey Ink's Think Big Favorites #19. The paper I used for the Pumpkins and leaves were from Stampin' Up! a couple of years ago.  I love the color and texture of that paper, probably why I hoarded it!!

Thank you for stopping by to take a look!
