Close to My Heart's 'It's the Little Things' Blog Hop

Welcome to Our November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

If  you arrived here from Jilena's blog your on the right path.
If  you've just found our hop be assured that you will see all the artwork, since the hop is actually one big circle, but if you'd like to start at the beginning, want a list of all the blogs, or get lost visit Melinda's blog.

I made a quick favor box to give to guest at Thanksgiving or any occasion.  This could be a gift with some chocolates, lip balm or ? in it for colleagues at the office or friends and family at the table. 
This is very quick to make and a large assortment of  these bags can be done in an afternoon.  As we enter the Holiday Season our free time is limited, so we need faster, simpler, easier.  

 I used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge, Gold Shimmer Trim, Saddle exclusive ink, Neutral Metallic Bakers Twine, a piece of B&T from the Pathfinding paper pack, and It's the Little Things SOTM. 

Now I need to decide if I like it with or with out the ribbon on the handle.  
 Without Ribbon
With Ribbon

These is a box I created back in August for the New product blog hop, but that I did not use.  It was sitting in the closet undecorated.  I stamped a ton of flowers with 9 different inks and 5 different colors of  cardstock.  What I picked is a stylized version and all of it is scraps destined for the pail, but saved in a midnight fit of insomnia. 

Happy Halloween!

Thank you for taking the time to view our blog hop.  There are over 60 consultants participating this month worldwide.  Now it's time for you to hop over to Lela's blog.
