Another quick project to share with you.
My sweet friend Amanda from Amanda's Crafts and More is doing a series called Thoughtful Thursdays and she asked if I'd share a project :) So, this is on her blog today. If you've never visited her before please take a moment to do so. I promise you'll be glad you did. I really admire her work and have LOTS of her projects on my Pinterest page.
Today I created a quick and easy project that would be easy to make lots of. I think one of these on each plate at the Thanksgiving table would be adorable.
I took Stampin' Up's Pillow Box die and some cardstock from the DCWV Autumn Splendor Stack to create the box.
For the tag I took Stampin' Up's Vintage Labels. I used their colors Really Rust and Ruby Red to stamp. I ended up cutting the label out by hand, but I know it coordinates with their oval punch.
The little leaf charm is a Shrinky Dink. It is made from an EK Success Punch. I used some Bright White Shrinky Dink film. I actually prefer the Rough and Ready kind for most projects because I find the Bright White gets streaky easily. For this project I figured streaks would look lovely in my leaves so I pulled this kind out. I colored the leaf with a Copic Marker and then punched a large hole with the bigger hole punch setting on my Crop a Dile. Then I baked it to shrink it.
I attached the charm with a thin red ribbon that I tied into a bow.
Super easy and festive! I could easily see making a bunch of these.
Thanks for dropping by :)
