giving thanks

Want to dress up your table and have your guests leave with more than just turkey?  I created a small favor that can double as place settings. First, you want to start by separating the blue and green M&Ms from the rest.

Next you need to cut sandwich bags down to create bag that resembles a cone.  You will need to tape one side in order to create this shape.
The last step is raffia. I flattened the raffia out and laid it in a fan shape under my cone.  To finish, I just tied it on at the top and bottom of the cone.
For presentation purposes and travel I nested the "corn" in a box with more raffia.  I also added some leaf tags with names so my favors could double as place settings.  What did you decorate your table with?!
