I have a sweet little project to share with you all today that I made for my Thanksgiving table ...
... isn't this miniature paper pumpkin the cutest thing! It was easy peesey to make by cutting 2 1/2" circles with a die, embossing the circles, folding in half, cutting half way up the middle and then placing them around the center base circle and glueing together! I shabbied my little pumpkin up with some cream and brown paint and added a paper doilie and glittered paper flowers (first spritzed with gold Glimmer Mist), leaves and satin ribbon to the nose gay.
I couldn't stop there ... just the ladies will receive a mini pumpkin to take home, so I decided to make place cards for each guest at the table to coordinate with the pumpkin! More embossing, inking and a larger, glittered flower, leaves and ribbon. I used SU's Rough Type stamp set to stamp all the letters and then punched them out with a 1/2" circle punch.
What a fun and adorable little fall/thanksgiving project! When you make your table decorations for this upcoming holiday season, send me a link ... I'd love to peek at all of your projects!
I was inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World ... isn't it A-MAZING!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to do that exact same thing for my Thanksgiving table this year!
Thanks for peeking today and have a wonderful, stampy day :)
