My little turkey favor looks a little spaced out, I think! Maybe I need to do his eyes better! This is a fun favor to make for your Thanksgiving table with the Circle Treat Cups. It’s actually a little card 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ that can stand open on the table at each person’s plate. Use a 1 3/4″ Circle Punch to punch a hole for the Circle Treat Cup. I used Mini Glue Dots to attach the front edge of the treat cup to the inside of the card. Rather than just cover up the back of the treat up after the candy was inside, I cut a slightly smaller piece of card stock to fit on the back and punched a hole in that to line up with the treat cup. I only put a thin line of glue on three sides of that card stock so one side would be open. Next I cut another smaller piece of card stock to slide inside to cover the hole. You can see the little tab I cut out so the person can pull that piece out and retrieve the candy easily ( I meant to put it on the opposite side, but it’s fine!).
Once you have that basic treat cup construction finished, you can work on your turkey on the front! Just use a circle punch for the head and oval punches for the tail feathers. I used the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper but you could also just use card stock, perhaps embossed or stamped. Instead of putting the Thanksgiving greeting at the bottom, you could write the person’s name there and use it for a place card. I might even add a little turkey hand holding a sign on which I can write the person’s name on black card stock with my Chalk Marker!
I seemed to get a lot of blue M&M’s in my Treat Cup! You can pick out the fall colors and put those in there or even some nuts or something that goes with Thanksgiving! I think a little party favor for everyone is always a nice touch at the table!
