Make A Wish with Turkey Wishbone

Hi Stampers,

Growing up, my brother Tom and I used to fight over who got the wishbone at Thanksgiving. Did you too? I was playing with my new set Paisleys and Posies and look what I came up with.  I think it is cute. Don't you? I really like it because it is a different take on the other Thanksgiving cards I see and ones I create. I also used one of my Paper Pumpkin kit stamps to stamp the pumpkin background. Those little stamp sets are gems!!! I wish I would remember to use them more. And, did you see the circle framelits? They are the new stitched framelit which in my book ARE THE BOMB!!! I have wanted those FOREVER!!! I am so glad Stampin' Up! brought these out AND they are offering them to all of us, demos and customers early from the annual catalog which doesn't come out until next year!!! Isn't that great? I also like using the sentiment "Make A Wish" from a Birthday Set called Party with Cake. I love finding other ways to further my supplies.

This is the framelit I used to make the "wishbone". Just die cut it and cut it down with scissors.

Pilgrim Hat Clothespins

Hi Stampers,

I had some leftover black glimmer paper and mini clothespins so I made some pilgrim hat clips. Perfect for clipping to little snacks for your Thanksgiving table. I made two different ones. One uses the Artisan punch, 1" circle punch and  2" circle punch. The other uses the Artisan punch and small oval punch.

I also used some retired punches as well--Artisan Label and oval punch. I also used retired white satin ribbon.

I hope you will give this a try. The glue dots work MUCH better than the green glue (ask me how I know *wink*)

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #206-Turkey Table Favors

 

#206

We are having a product spotlight challenge this week. We were to use one of Stampin' Up's packaging dies. I haven't used my Curvy Keepsake Box thinlit like in, forever so I chose to use this for the challenge. I wasn't quite sure what to make to WOW you with but with the upcoming holidays this idea popped into my head. I thought they would make the cutest table favors for Thanksgiving!!!! What do you think? I bought a pack of 7 of the dry roasted almonds  and placed one inside.

I made 4 "drumsticks" and 4 "bones". I adhered 2 of each together and then adhered them with dimensionals to each side. I sponged Soft Suede around the die cutouts before putting together. I cut the "drumsticks" out of the leaf framelits from the Flower Fair framelits set. I think the thick Baker's twine looks like the basting string you tie up your turkey with.
