Thanksgiving favors

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to share some Thanksgiving favors that my daughter helped me make for our family. I put her to work while I was cooking, baking and frantically picking up, and she did a fabulous job! Those kids come in handy every once in a while:)
We used the gift card envelope die by SSS to make these little chocolate favors. I spritzed the brown paper with gold mist and die cut the feathers in pattern paper scraps and some yummy glittery gold paper.
