Thanksgiving Projects

I already showed you the garland in an earlier post, but here a a few more ideas for Thanksgiving.

I used the Autumn Fest set to stamp the candle in colors taken right out of the apple cider designer series paper for a great coordinating look.

I think for my Thanksgiving Brunch I will stamp several more candles in different heights to create a centerpiece grouping.

I used the Autumn Harvest, Warm Words and Short Order Alphabet sets along with the apple cider designer paper, river rock and naturals ivory card stock and wild wasabi double stitched grosgrain ribbon to make the chipboard coaster place card. This is actually two coasters adhered together at the top. The bottom of the back coaster is bent out to create an easel so that the place card can stand next to a place setting without needing a separate holder.

The Gratitude journal is decorated with apple cider paper and wild wasabi card stock and stamped with an image from Sidekick Sayings. I used the river rock double stitched grosgrain ribbon to
create a bookmark. I think it would be fun to pass this little notebook around this year so that everyone can make a permanent record of what they're grateful for. Another option would be to make a journal for every guest so they can write down what they're grateful for throughout the year.

I used the Autumn Harvest and the Think happy Thoughts sets, along with the Acorns wheel (which is on the dormant list) to make this cute little treat holder. When you slide down the belly band and open the flap you'll find a bite-size Hershey chocolate bar inside. Cute and simple!

So there you go, my Thanksgiving projects so far. And I'm not quite done yet. After all, Thanksgiving is still more than a month away, so I have plenty of time to come up with still more decorations.
