Wishing You the Blessings of the Season!

Good Tuesday morning and welcome to JustRite's "It is Hip to be Square blog" hop! I'm going to show you a sweet treat for Thanksgiving! Sooo simple and fun! Can you believe it? Pilgrim Hats! I LOVE these! I was browsing the Taste of Home website shortly after I had made THESE. I tucked this idea away to use for Thanksgiving and am so excited to share! Ingredients used: Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies, mini Reese Peanut Butter cups, Chicklets gum, and yellow frosting. I decided I wanted to repurpose a clear box from a stamp set I purchased. So, I created a cardstock tray to slide into the box. It was just a tiny bit large for the 4 cookies, so I made square tubes to add color and frame the cookies! Of course, we have to add box embellishments after the cookies are tucked inside! (Sorry for the photo glare!) I chose to use JustRite's Christmas Joy set for my sentiment, and border the sentiment, stamping a new 2" Square border to frame the label punched sentiment. I utilized the new Square 2" Wooden stamper and Adirondack Espresso ink to stamp all square images. (Again, sorry for the glare!) Suede ribbon is from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Peek of JustRite's Christmas Joy set and Oval wooden stamper used on today's creations. I LOVE the versatility of these stamps, even though this is a "Christmas" set, the sentiment I chose works wonderfully for the Thanksgiving holiday! Another packaging idea using a clear pail, wrapped with Cosmo Cricket, Earth Love designer papers. For this tag, I chose another Square decorative border to frame my sentiment. Punched leaves, Martha Stewart border punch, adhesive pearls, and Sharon's ribbon embellish the pail nicely! Perfect for teachers, neighbors, or a hostess gift!
And another close up of this darling cookie idea! SWEET! Check out all the JustRite Design Team blogs for inspiration galore! It definitely IS Hip to be Square! JustRite BLOG
