These ideas all come from my Thanksgiving Table Ideas Class and I thought I’d share them here with all you digital peeps who might not be able to travel to Inky Crafty Fun HQ to get to a class
First up is the super easy and cute placemat
All you need for this amazing conversation starter is some craft paper and the I’m Thankful For Stamp (wood 135170 $12.95). I cut an 11×17 piece of plain brown craft paper and stamp this awesome wood stamp in Early Espresso Ink (126974) in the lower right corner. Viola! Trendy placemats that’ll keep your guests busy while you wrestle the bird into submission on a platter
Next is the feathered napkin ring
What you’ll need here is the Four Feathers Framelits Dies (135852 $12.95) and some Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper (135820 $10.95). Cut 1″ by 6″ strips of the DSP and use your Big Shot to cut coordinating feathers using the framelits. Adhere the DSP strips into rings and stick those feathers on the front using dimensionals. Cut a banner from some Whisper White cardstock and write your guests names on the banner. Then adhere it to the front of the ring over the bottoms of the feathers.
Want to step that up a bit?
Use a bit of Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape (135842 $4.95) on the edges of your strips of DSP and to cover the seam where you join the ring. Then you can use the banner stamp from the For All Things Fall stamp set (Wood 135152 Clear 135155) and stamp it in Crushed Curry (131173) on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to give your guest’s namecard a little extra pizzaz!
The Final Touch… Treat Bags!
Using the For All Things Fall stamp set (Wood 135152 Clear 135155), stamp the acorns in White Staz On ink (106960) all over onto Cello Treat Bags. Let this dry and fill the bags with treats. I used Reeses Pieces for the fall colors and deliciousness!
For the tag, stamp the background stamp in Soft Sky (131181) on a 2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Next, stamp the leaves in Soft Suede (126978). Using your Stampin’ Write Marker in Blackberry Bliss, color just the “For You” on the Grateful For You stamp and stamp this on top of the tag. Add some Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape (135852 $4.95) on the bottom edge and punch the top using the Angled Tag Topper Punch. Tie it onto your treat bag with some Linen Thread and wow your guests with a parting gift.
