Gobble, Gobble Ghirardelli Treat Holders

Check out the original tutorial for this treat holder HERE.

This pattern is an oldie, but a goodie! As always, feel free to click on the images in this post to see full-size pictures. You can make your treat holders simple (see pic below), or add the 'give thanks' saying to each treat holder on a tag (as shown above). I wanted to make these for you a good while back, but life got in the way. Among a million other things, we even had a trip to the E.R. yesterday--but everyone's okay, thankfully. The kids have a full week's break from school next week for Thanksgiving, so they can recover and rejuvenate! And I can SLEEP IN!!!

Aren't these treat holders cute? I've never seen such adorable turkeys. Don't you want to put these on your Thanksgiving table??? The cool thing is that you can take out the treat and eat it, and you don't have to rip the holder to do it. So, you could replace the chocolates and use the treat holders at your Thanksgiving table in future years if you really wanted to.

Or, you could be a total turkey and eat the chocolate, then carefully tuck the wrapper back in the holder and prank someone else into thinking they're getting a! Yeah, you're right, that's mean. But you will probably be around family next week and if you do it to your older brother who's always been a turd to you, aren't you just facilitating karma?

Anyway, due to experiencing life these last few weeks, I really didn't give you enough time to order supplies to make these, but I wanted to make sure you saw them before next week. To recreate these you'd need the following Stampin' Supplies:
