Thankful gifts

I wanted to make some Thanksgiving gifts for my kids' Mother's Day Out teachers and their Sunday School teachers, so I used this month's Scripts kit to decorate some yummy pumpkin spice candles and make a little paper pumpkin.

These candles take about 15 minutes (if even that!) to make. I just cut a strip that wraps around the candle, tied a strip of fabric around it, and adhered on the velvet leaves, handcut paper leaves, and a mini-tag embellished with a flourish from the Making Memories glitter alpha stickers.
I used a pumpkin tutorial by my friend Greta (found here) to make this mini pumpkin out of paper. I changed the dimensions to 6" strips and I used about 17 strips. It was super easy.
I loved how the shimmer on the cardstock really adds a special touch to the pumpkin, and the little wine tag was perfect for this gift! I hand cut leaves and added "veins" in them with the glitter glue. Fun stuff! I can't wait to give these little gifts to their teachers!

(This is going to be random, so just ignore it if you don't know who I'm referring to- just trying to help a chick out!)
