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!! 🙂
