Thanksgiving Snack Mix {Trendy Twine}

Good Morning Everyone!
It is my DT day over on the Trendy Twine Blog!

Fall is in the air.....winter in some places :( but Thanksgiving is just around the corner so for my project today, I have a sweet treat idea to share that would surly make those little ones at the Thanksgiving dinner table VERY happy!

 I followed the current Trendy Twine Challenge going on right now.....
which is a
Fall Foliage Recipe:
Autumn or Thanksgiving Theme
Fall Foliage (Fall leaves, flowers, branches)
Trendy Twine**

 and here is what I came up with.....
Yummy treat don't you think?? And what kiddo doesn't LOVE a homemade, filled with their favorite treat snack mix??
 (When I was gathering supplies for this one, my kiddos were over my shoulder sneaking in a handful...I had to chase them out of the kitchen or I wouldn't have enough left for my project..LOL)
The AWESOME thing about making your own snack mix is you can add whatever you have on hand, like in mine I added: chex cereal, m&m's, chocolate covered mini pretzels, yogurt covered raisins and some walnuts. I mixed it all up and poured it into one of the Biggie Candy Bags. I sealed the bag up and it was ready for the tag.

For the tag, I used My Creative Time Just Tags die as well as the leaf dies from the Piles of Smiles set. I die cut both in  brown and orange cardstock to match the Orange Truffle Trendy Twine . For the sentiment, I also used a My Creative Time stamp from the Just for You set. To attach it to the bag, I wrapped one of those ADORABLE Mini Wooden Scoops in some Orange Truffle Trendy Twine and tied it with a double bow.
