Hello everyone! Can you believe Thanksgiving is a mere 3 weeks away? Where has the time gone and is it really November already? All I can say is, “Wow”!!! Time really does fly! Anyway, as Thanksgiving approaches I’ve decided to create a card to celebrate the day, and if you are hosting on that special day, I’ve also made some place cards for your holiday table and a small gift box to hold a small little gift just for saying, thank you for coming. I hope these projects inspire you to create a more “handmade” holiday. All of these projects were created using my favorite adhesives from Therm O Web, 3D Zots and Sticky Tape Runner. I hope you enjoy!
When I made the gift box, I first painted a chipboard tag and a paper mache round gift box with Magnolia White Acrylic Paint from Delta. Then when the pieces were dried, I sanded the edges, distressed them with Vintage Photo Distressing Ink to give them a rustic look. I wanted to keep the theme neutral so I stamped the images with the same distressing ink, then cut them out. Adhering them was easy, I simply used the Sticky Tape Runner to adhere the images to the tag, then for added dimension, I used 3D Zots. For the place cards and Thanksgiving card I used the same adhesives in basically the same way, adhering first your images, then popping them with dimension.
Have a wonderful, handmade Thanksgiving!! 🙂
