Creative Inking Blog Hop - Falling In Love With Fall

Blog hot
Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop.  Our theme is Falling in Love with Fall.  This is a real challenge for me, because this is my least favourite of all the Seasons.  Here in Canada, it is a dull time right after all the leaves fall.  I love the colours of the leaves but........ I do have a hard time working with the fall colours.

Thanksgiving in Canada is in October.  We are having a very small gathering of only 4 so I decided to do something for the Thanksgiving Table .  I thought that some Spiced Pecans after dinner would be nice and wanted to make a box to put them in.

Here is the box that I designed for the Table setting.  I love these Celebration Labels Dies.  I used the Autumn Goodness Bundle to help decorate them.  I will include a supply list below:

And the opened Box

I also did a a template for the box.

I thought it would be best to do a video showing how I made the box.  

Don't forget to subscribe to my You Tube channel - You can do that here.  That way you will be notified when I upload a video.

Here are the measurements for the box:

Cinnamon Cider:  3 ¾” x 6 for the 2 ovals. 4 7/8” x 7” for the box ,  1 ¾” x 2 ½” , scraps

Tasteful Touches DSP: 1 ¾” x 4”

Whisper White: 2 ¼” x 2 ½”

Copper Brushed Metallic Sheet: scraps

Also here is the Recipe for the Spiced Pecans:

Candied Pecans

2 C Pecans

Combine in Large Bowl

1 T Melted Butter

3 T Brown Sugar

½ t. Cinnamon

½ t. Cayenne Pepper

1 ½ T Canadian Maple Syrup

½ t. salt

Line baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Spread pecans on baking sheet and bake 8 – 10 minutes.  Stir every 3-4 minutes.

Melt butter, stir in remaining ingredients.

Remove Pecans from oven and stir into mixture coating well.

Put back onto baking sheet.

Back 5-10 minutes, stirring every 3 -4 minutes.

Enjoy!  Once you have one you may find it hard to stop.
