Hello JustRite© Papercrafts Fans! I am so excited and honored to be guest designing for such a wonderful company for the next couple of days! Today I would like to share with you a project I made for my family’s Thanksgiving table. Every Thanksgiving, my mom is the hostess but I get the honor of designing the Thanksgiving table. This year I fell in love with the Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five stamp set and the matching Vintage Labels Five die template. Here is my table setting. I made a cute little box holding extra napkings, a napkin ring and a goodie bag to take home after our wonderful day of thanksgiving!
To create this place setting, I stamped the black-eyed susan stamp onto white cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and used Copic Markers to color it. I did this 4 times for my 3 projects
After coloring the image, I fussy cut them out and used some Crystal Stickles on them to give them shine and set them aside to dry. Now its time to make the little napkin holder using the Vintage Labels Five die template. I cut/embossed 2 of the largest from the die set out of chocolate brown cardstock. Then I cut a strip of the same cardstock to 2 ½ x 11”. Then I scored the strip at 4” & 7” across the short side and at ½” along the long edges. Then I cut from the edge to the score line at the 4” & 7” score marks plus prefolded all the edges to form the box.
Then I added the scor-tape to the bottom of the Vintage Labels Five die cuts.
Here is what your box should look like at this point!
Now add some Scor-tape or liquid adhesive to the rounded edges of the die cut and assemble your box.
After putting my box together, I decorated it with the black-eyed susans and added the So Thankful sentiment from Good Friends Labels Twenty-Nine set. I also created a napkin ring and treat bag. Everyone needs a treat bag full of chocolate kisses to take home, don’t you agree? Hope this project inspires you to make something special for your Thanksgiving table!
