Blessing-Mix-2010We made a couple versions of the Blessing Mix Box ….. Saturday on UStream.  And over the next couple days I’ll share them with you.

For this Blessing Mix Box I used the Box #2 Die and embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink.

I printed the Poem on Very Vanilla card stock and added it to a Scallop Circle from the Scallop Circles #2 die. I used the Days of Gratitude stamp set to stamp around the edges and sponged it with More Mustard.

I added the ingredients into a Small Cello Bag and tied it with the Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. The ingredients include, Bugles, Pretzels, Candy Corn, Peanuts & Orange Slices.  I’ve posted the poem on the left side bar….scroll down mid way.   I’m working on the pdf and will get it posted later today (6 to a page verses one).

The final piece was adding the Antique Brad in the corner.

I’ve filmed a video and it’s ready to go….click here to watch it on my Chic n Scratch Live! website.

Here’s the Blessing Mix Poem.

The Bugles are a symbol of the Cornucopia, a horn of plenty.

The Pretzels represent arms folded in Thanks & Prayer.

The Candy Corn reminds us that during the first winter, the pilgrims were allowed only five kernels of corn per day.

because the food was scarce.

The Fruit is a reminder that Thanksgiving is the celebration

of the harvest.

The Peanuts represent seeds, the potential of the bounteous

harvest of the next season if they are planted & well-tended.

A Very Big THANK YOU goes out to everyone that put up with me on Saturday during the live stream on UStream……  even though I didn’t feel good you all were very nice and I love you!!

Order Stampin' Up!
