We have fun things planned for the blog this month. Amanda took an instagram picture of my desk yesterday and the giant mess is evidence of just how much creative fun is happening at Pazzles. Starting today and for the next two weeks we will be showcasing projects to add a little craftiness to your Thanksgiving table. We can’t wait to share these pieces with you. Let’s get started.
First up is this Shaker
Snow Leaf Globe Place Card. Set one of these at each guest’s plate with their name on it, or make a giant one that says Happy Thanksgiving for a decoration. When shaken, the leaves in the globe will move around and fall from the tree. The full instructions are included below, but I do have a few tips to share. First, make sure you are using strong adhesive to put the base together. Use large glue dots or the red Therm.O.Web supertape to adhere it. Second, select a thick sturdy cardstock for the base. If you wanted to use patterned paper, I would cut an additional base from cardstock and glue the patterned paper and cardstock together before assembling.
Enjoy this fun project and stay tuned next Friday for another crafty piece for your table.
