Thanksgiving Teacher's Gifts 2016

OK, we got a new store in the mall that is kind of like a Bed Bath and Beyond and also like a Gordmans/TJMax and I wanted to recreate a tea light display for teachers gifts because of course I can make it.

 I am using some glass saucers and jars from Micheal's Craft Store and some E6000 glue along the bottom to adhere them.
 I cut out some 2 inch circles from some Heavy Weight cream card stock, inked the edges in Baked Brown Sugar and stamped A Day of Gathering with Crushed Curry Ink.

I adhere it to the top of the lid with some Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.
 I am using some hot glue to adhere different fake leaves in Fall Colors.
 Adding some Fall leaves next, trimming them off this wreath formation that it came on.

I ended up glueing 5 leaves down around/ontop of the orange and yellow leaf twig stuff.
 I got some of these Fall ball color things and I took them off the twig wreath thing and removed them from the wire as well.

I ended up glueing 3 colors on 3 of the 5 leaves.
                                                     The packaging and finished project.

                                                 I added a tea light plus and extra battery.
With the lights down.

 I am using some bigger leaves and clustering them in threes.

This one package had enough plus extra for my five box toppers.

$1.99 of course on sale
I stapled them in the center.
 I stamped Happy Thanksgiving in Baked Brown Sugar Ink on the same Heavy Weight Cream card stock.
 I am using a Stampin UP Acorn Punch and some embossing folders from my stash, a wood grain type and a dot one.

I am using Baked Brown Sugar and Crumb Cake card stock from Stampin UP as well.
 I inked them in their cordinating ink to give them some texture.
 I made my own box using some 12X12 textured card stock.

Here is the website I used to help me with the box dimensions.

I am adding some fallish ribbon and taping in the center now bow.

Ribbon from the Fall line from Micheal's.
 I added some inexpensive foam circles to the back of the leave cluster.
I made a banner end and added the acorn to the banner as well.

I hot glued just the acorn down on top of the staple.
