Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Happiness Table Top Banner

I love personalizing my projects and I generally try creating my projects with someone special in mind. I love giving my creativity away and having that person know it was made especially for them. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. For those hosting your own turkey day, this is a great way to greet guests with personalized messages. Perhaps the use family name, or glue several sections together and make an entire saying for your Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Thanks Center Step Card

Thank You Center Step Card

Melin here today. Sharing a pretty and very easy card with you. I started by using the Fun Fold Center Step card for the base. I cut it in some Red Bazzil cardstock. For the panels I used some Die Cuts With A View The Botanicals Stack. I then cut the middle frame from the Fancy Circle Frame file. I broke that file apart and then used the inside oval and made a couple layers. I inked the edges of the middle layer with some Olive Ink and then stamped my sentiment with my Olive Ink Pad. I added a few bitty sparkles and used some foam tape to give it a little dimension. For the flourishes, I used the Flourish Sticks file and just cut one piece of that file to make these flourishes. I then used the Flower Bunch file for the little flowers. Lastly I added some ribbon and some Gold gems to the centers of the flowers. Super quick and such nice results.

Fall Thankful Box Using The ...

Fall reminds me of pumpkin patches, beautiful warm colors, and pumpkin rolls. Every year I like to make pumpkin rolls and slice them to be packaged as gifts. I love that my Inspiration makes it so easy to be able to put together a cute box in no time, to make these sweets extra special. I saw the Cupcake Favor Box in the library and thought this would be perfect! I simply enlarged it a bit more. To decorate my box I used several cutting files which can be found in the Craft Room Library.

Thanksgiving Headbands

Thanksgiving Kids Craft: Headbands

Every family has their own Thanksgiving traditions. It begins around the table with generations of love, delicious recipes and the memories of times past. A tradition we had growing is up is that all the children in the family sat at the kids table. I loved that it was set exactly like the grownup's table, except a miniature version just for us.

Inking and Chalking Tips

Cutting out amazing images in any color, shape and size: isn't that the magic of the Pazzles Inspiration electronic cutter? I can cut paper shapes and combine layers, colors and textures to create a visual feast for the eyes. If you stop with the paper and glue you have a great project. However, if you want an amazing project you need to move beyond the paper. You can add depth and character by inking or chalking the paper to add shadow and highlights. Suddenly, like magic, the flat pieces of paper have curves and dimension.

Pilgrim Hat and Bonnet

Maybe it's just me, but I'm a little partial to miniature things made of paper. These Thanksgiving Pilgrim hats are no exception. I think they are so sweet and I can't wait to make a dozen of them. They would be so cute on each child's plate at the kid's table; a hat for the boys and a bonnet for the girls. Or, attach the hat version to a headband for a fun photo prop.

Harvest Spread

The way food is presented has a huge effect on how we perceive it to taste.It may all be in our heads but we simply cannot help that a wonderful looking spread makes us believe it is also a wonderful tasting spread. Well we may not be able to help you with the cooking part, for that you are on your own! But we can help you with making your harvest feast look amazing!

Faux Paper Piecing

I love Paper Piecing. It adds such wonderful dimension and character to a design. In fact, Pazzles began as a company that sold Paper Piecing patterns. I designed Paper Piecing characters and themes and sold the printed pattern. You then traced the pattern onto paper and cut the pieces out by hand. Goodness, that seems like ages ago, so slow and primative! The Inspiration electronic cutter has made the process so much easier by eliminating the tedious hand cutting. Still, there are times I would like to speed the process up even more. That is when I like to use a trick I call Faux Paper Piecing.

Thanksgiving Turkey Boxes

I love these silly little turkeys which stand up on their own and open up to reveal a box inside. I find it hard to refrain from smiling every time I look at them. What a fun way to decorate for Thanksgiving!
