In my home-state of Virginia, we have the pleasure of experiencing all four seasons.  Now, as the trees are turning color and the temperatures are cooling, we prepare for all the wonderful things of fall.  This season is one of harvest and Thanksgiving.  We bring out our best home cooking/baking and share more with family and friends.

Today I’m sharing with you a small Thank You gift perfect for this time of year.  While it is not a home baked gift, it still gives the essence of fall in a tiny package.CIMG2364

This treat bag is stuffed with an instant hot apple cider pack and a natural cinnamon stick for stirring and a bit of extra aromatherapy.  I added a Top Note die cutout, a couple of textured leaves, some trim and a tag.  This makes a perfect gift for fall party favors, teacher or co-worker gifts, or any other reason to give someone a smile.

Here are the supplies used to make this project:
