Divine™ Jack-o-Lantern Mini Purse Favor

Raise your hand if you're tired of seeing Christmas stuff all over the place before Halloween. Yeah, I hear ya ;-) I am guilty of having shared 5 Christmas Cards in a row myself recently (oops). But today, I am really starting to dig in with the Halloween theme. Actually, this project I am sharing today does double duty--if you leave off the Jack-o-Lantern face, it makes a lovely Fall or Thanksgiving treat or table favor:


This Jack-o-Lantern Mini Purse Favor features Stampin' Up!'s Bigz L Petite Purse Die. This die will cut out the body of the purse, along with a purse strap. For this project, I elected to use the purse strap to hold four Divine™ Milk Chocolate Mini Pieces, as you see below. You could just leave your chocolates banging around the inside of the favor, but I thought it would be uber nifty for the recipient to open it up and pull out this tidy little package of awesomeness :-D


I love making decorative treat holders, but for the last several years, I've felt worse and worse about using what I call "big corporation candy". You know the candies I'm talking about. I love chocolate as much as the next folk, but as a grownup, an overwhelming part of the enjoyment I derive from chocolate now involves fairness in commerce, and wholesome ingredients. I'll post my rant on this later, but for now just believe me when I tell you that Divine™ chocolates live up to their name in every way! That's why I'll be featuring them in MANY more upcoming holiday projects--don't they look great together?


You'll find the list of supplies I used to create this project at the end of this post. If you need more detailed instructions, you may want to Subscribe to My Blog by Email so you don't miss my upcoming Jack-o-Lantern Mini Purse Favor Video Tutorial.
