Happy Thanksgiving Eve. While a lot of folks are getting ready for turkey day, I'm getting ready for Christmas. I love decorating the tree with handmade items and yummy gifts. This year I'm making Orna*Mints* to hang on the tree. Each one will also be labled with a little name tag so nobody can say..."hey...I didn't get one"

What you'll need:

Die cut of your choice
Hole Punch
Mint for the middle (I used York)
Any other embellishments you would like to use.

I started by punching a hole on the top of the die cut. Adding a piece of One and Only double sided tape on the backside of each die cut, I adheared them to either side of the candy. Don't limit yourself to pepermints...try any bite sized candy for this technique. Thread your ribbon through the holes and tie a knot in the middle. Decorate as you wish. I used Ornamental Holiday to decorate my Orna*Mints*. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
