Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Tracy here from the Idea Closet and today  I am excited to share my centerpiece for our Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.

I used the 3 Narrow Candles with tea lights. 
The candles can be used separately  or in the Centerpiece Tray.

They come in three sizes and are easy to assemble.

For my candles, I wrapped  burlap ribbon around the middle; use glue dots to hold it in place.
The pumpkin tag is from the JGW Thanksgiving Ornaments Tree.
Shrink down the pumpkin to fit the candles, then tie it on with twine  and wrap it around the burlap.

The candles can hold tea lights purchased from the dollar store.
Turn the lights on and set in the middle of your table.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving.

Tiny Treat Boxes with Beth

Hello everyone!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  I created these tiny treat boxes using SVG Attic's Mini Treat Place Card file.
The original file creates a box that is only 1.25" tall, but I enlarged these just a bit so they could hold a little more.  The papers I used are all from DCWV's Red & White Christmas stack.  The design is super simple to assemble, but directions can be found HERE if you need them!
The tags are included with this file and I stamped them with VersaMark ink and sentiments from APB Merry & Bright stamp set.  I heat embossed them with silver glitter embossing powder for a bit of sparkle and shine.  I then tied them to the wrap around the box with Peppermint Stick and Stormy Trendy Twines.  Inside the boxes I added money and Hershey's Kisses.  These will make great stocking stuffers for Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Royal Guard Nutcracker

Recently a new movie, based on the ballet The Nutcracker, released and I saw it as the perfect opportunity to get to make the awesome Nutcracker 3D Figure from the Nutcracker Patrol kit.

As I sat down to decide colors and patterns of paper to use for him, I got the idea of making him in the image of the Danish Royal Guards. I also decided not to use patterned paper this time to make him as realistic as possible.

This is what I was somewhat going for:

And this is what I ended up with:

The Nutcracker is made from AC Cardstock in Rouge, Sapphire, Black and White and decorated with gold glitter paper and gold foil.

I used a bit of chenille on his hat, cut pieces of long haired faux fur for hair and beard and tied black scrap floss in his boots.

I added an extra ribbon to match the Royal Guard uniforms and added the small crown (found in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #9172 by Hero Arts) to establish the Royal connection.

And what is a soldier/guard without his sword?

Finally I added a tiny pop dot behind his nose for dimension.

I also made the Drummer Boy 3D Box from the same kit but altered it slightly:

This is made from AC Cardstock in Rouge, Latte and White and decorated with gold foil cardstock, blue and white twine along with a poinsettia flower from Prima.

I changed the panels to triangles to make it look more Danish and as a final touch.....

….I placed a Danish Flag on top (it's not glued down - it's one of many that my Mom made to sprinkle on a Birthday party table)

Now my first Christmas project is ready and just waiting to join the rest of the decorations, once I get it down from the attic and placed around the house - hoping for this weekend!

Thanks for joining me today - I hope you liked my version of the Nutcracker and drum - please let me know in a comment below.

Pumpkin Place Cards

Hello everyone. Sonja with Sugar Bean Cards here to show you my latest take on the new file, Pumpkin Place Cards.

This file can be used with candy or simply by itself and it would still bring festivity to your Thanksgiving table!

To start with, I grabbed a sharpie pen and inked out the names onto the tags
 Then I cut out all the elements from the DCWV Autumn Splendor Stack
Once everything was assembled, I popped some candies in there and now we are ready!
Luckily my kids will not feel like a left out child never finding their name personalized on anything. I can remedy that for them!

Thank you for joining us today! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration with your family and friends.

Happy Autumn

Happy Sunday to you and thank you so much for joining me today.

For the final Autumn projects this year I chose to make the cute 3D Owl from the JGW Autumn Aire kit:

I used AC Cardstock in Coffee, Chocolate, Caramel, Rust and Latte along with patterned paper from Echo Park's "A Perfect Autumn" and woodgrain patterned paper from Simple Stories.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and I used some hemp cord to tie around the belly of the Owl.

I also doodled some highlights in his eyes with a white Sharpie.

He is quite large and sooooooo adorable not to mention very easy to make.

I also made the Oak Leaf Wreath:

I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Latte, Pomegranate, Leaf, Apricot, Mustard, Goldfish, Plum, Rouge and Wine for this.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and the leaves and the berries are embossed with different embossing folders from Darice and Sizzix.

I also used pop dots to add the leaves to give it more dimension.

This one is going to live with my mother, who recently moved from her house into a small apartment with a front door that has a window in it. This will be perfect to hang there and spred a little Autumn happiness.

Thanks for joining me today - now it's time for Christmas!

Thankful with Lisa

Happy Friday and welcome back! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper and I have three cards I created using Wheat Stems Thankful, Flourished Acorn Tile, and the Pilgrim Suit a6 files. 

Wheat Stems Thankful is an a7 card that is so easy to cut and assemble. I used Echo Park plaid paper and Tonic Studios Specialty Champagne Harlequin paper. 

Using the Flourished Acorn Tile sized down to fit a 5 x 5 navy card base and created a shaker card. I used the Tonic Studios Specialty Champagne Harlequin paper. 

This a6 is so adorable and so easy to assemble. This is a perfect card for kids to help with. I used the Tonic Studios Champagne Harlequin paper for the buckle, with gray, white, black cardstock and a kraft card base. 

Thanks for stopping by! 
You can find all the details on my blog

As always, thanks for joining us!

Gather Box Card

November is one of the most beautiful months of the year.  
I love the colors and smells.

Tracy here and today I am sharing a project for SVG Attic celebrating the month of November.

Gather In Pumpkins 3D box Card is a wonderful box card and works up so nicely.

There are so many details, including 6 pumpkins and another 3 stacked pumpkins, two fences and lots of leaves and vines.  

I added some twine to the pumpkin stems and tied around the box.

This card turned out so pretty, it would even make a great table decoration. 
Paper is from Carta Bella- Autumn and Hello Fall lines.
Edges are inked with Memento inks.

Thank you for joining me today.
