I made some napkin rings using the Art Philosophy cartridge and stamping the images using the Thanksgiving stamp set.
I made some of the napkin rings into turkeys. First I cut out scalloped circles using the Art Philosophy Cartridge. Then cut them in half to make the turkey "feathers".
Then I cut out turkey shapes from Kraft Cardstock.
Then I glued the body onto the "feathers" and glued the whole thing onto "ring" that I made from a paper roll covered with cardstock.
We store them all in the Gratitude Box.
I'm giving the whole box set to my mother (who I am forever grateful for) and so I'm linking this project with the challenge from Heart to Heart this week.
Here is a candle ring I made using the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the flowers. Some of the flowers were made from book pages others from cardstock.
First I measured my candle stand and wrapped some wire filled twine around it twice. Then I cut the wire and twisted it to secure it in a circle shape.
Then I set it over the candle to make sure it would fit
Next I cut out the roses at 3 inches, inked them in autumn colors and rolled them - securing them with glue. Once they were all rolled, I started gluing them (using a hot glue gun) to the wire base along with some green silk hydrangeas and orange berries.
All told I used 12 roses for the finished ring. These would also look super cute tied with a ribbon on a window as a mini wreath.
Here is my Thanksgiving table - burlap with paper turkeys, pumpkins, and some berries.
And some super simple and super cute paper pumpkins with initials (cut out with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge) for our place settings - I added the leaf using 1/4 of a petal from the green silk hydrangea.
Gratitude is something I need to practice every day but am especially thankful for this time of year when it is a constant reminder all around me! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones :)
Yes, I have blog candy (and there is some more great "candy" along the hop :) )
