CUTTLEBUGSPOT THANKSGIVING TABLE DECOR
Following on from last weeks Cuttlebugspot challenge to create a Thanksgiving Invitation this week Nilda asked us to set the table and create Thanksgiving Table decor.
I decided to follow the theme of my invite and since I was so pleased to finally find my CB cut and emboss maple leaf I decided to get as much use out of it as possible!
I cut and embossed 3 maple leaves in copper glitter card, 3 with ivory Pearlescent card and 3 with gold mirri card, adhering 3 different ones together and adding some gold squiggly wire. I then punched out 3 strips of gold mirricard using Martha Stewart Double Edge Weave deep edge punch. I used 2 strips on my candle and adhered the leaf decor atop, and used one to make the napkin ring with another set of my leaves. Finally I used my gold leaf pen to write the name on my placecard. This was a quick and easy project and could easily be used (using different toppers) for any occasion.
By the way once I'd done with photographing my project on Sunday evening that glass of wine was very enjoyable!! Oops I forgot to put the knife and fork in! Never mind you get the picture!
Pop over to the Cuttlebugspot to see all the fabulous creations this week and please join in with us too!
