You know what time it is? Time for the Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Fall Holidays! We have a fun lineup for you today! You’ve probably just come from Jan Tinklenberg’s blog
…aren’t her ideas fantastic? Follow the next buttons until you complete the tour and come back here!
I’m always excited to decorate for fall. And, even though it is early, I start thinking about the favor I will put on my table settings at Thanksgiving! My project this month serves a dual purpose…I can enjoy the favors as a centerpiece in the Sunflower Berry Basket right now…then place the individual Indian Corn favors on the plates at Thanksgiving! I’ve got several photos and hope you can appreciate the FUN-NESS of this project from the photos! They look great in person!
The first photo shows the Berry Basket Die decorated with the sunflower punched with the Festive Flower Builder Punch. It also shows a couple of the Indian Corn favors with the A Little Something Greeting stamped on leaves cut with the Leaflet Framelits, plus a little Gold Glimmer Paper bling!
A closeup of the tags. I’ll also write the name of each person on the leaf at the table setting.

And the favors placed in the Berry Basket to use as a centerpiece!
Isn’t that fun? I love how it turned out and it will be a great addition to my fall home decor! If you are curious, I was able to get 5 favors from one bag of fall colored M&Ms…and I was very generous with my portion…you could make them a little smaller and get 7-8 out of one bag easily! I have a short and sweet tutorial on how to make these Indian Corn favors in my blog post dated 9/21/15…I’ll add a link here as soon as I’m able (need to follow the Tour guidelines!)
Next up on the Tour de Freaks lineup is Mindy Backes…she always has wonderful ideas, too!
