Thanksgiving M&M Sticks

Hello & Happy Saturday!

Today is to be a nice day then later this afternoon/evening a major cold front is to come thru taking with it all this nice weather and giving us a taste of winter! Yikes....i'm sure it's going to be quite a shock on the body after all this nice weather we've had.
 I guess all good things have to come to an end eventually, right?!

So, I have this one customer who loves the M&M Sticks and requests them for every holiday!
I am sad that SU has retired these bags so I made sure to buy ALOT of them before they were gone.
Here is my Thanksgiving 2016 version of the M&M Sticks.

I used the Thoughtful Branches set on these and really like the color of my Fall leaves! I was going to add a gold foil leaf to these but the more I looked at them the more I liked it just the way they were. I think sometimes less is more! 
I was able to whip up 28 sticks from 2 packs of the Fall M&M's.

Thanksgiving 2016 M&M Sticks:

Stamps: Thoughtful Branches, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 x 8 Cello Bags (retired), Circle & Scallop Circle Punches, 1/4 Handheld Hole Punch, Crushed Curry Baker's Twine, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Lucky for my customer I still have like 8 full packs of these cello bags left!
I also did up a bunch for Christmas too! Definitely a fun & easy project to whip up in no time and who doesn't like M&M's??

My thoughts today....

....and wishing you a happy day!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend!

These are such cute treat bags and so perfect for this time of the year with those pretty leaves. I bought these cellophane bags and had a dickens of a time inserting those M&M's! Do you have a secret? Yours always look as neat as a pin!
Enjoy this last hurrah of nice weather and have a great weekend too!

These are so cute! They would make great witches' legs, LOL! I am sad they discontinued these, but the bigger ones are great too! I filled some with doggie treats!
